Rex the Polecat
Scientific Name: Mustela putorius
Character: Inquisitive and very playful
Likes: Playing hide and seek
Rex was brought into Tiggywinkles as a very young orphan. He was so small on admission we weren't sure if he would be strong enough to pull through.
He needed lifesaving fluids and round the clock care to get him strong enough to start bottle feeding, which thankfully he did take to. As Rex was so weak he had to have a lot of hands-on care, which we normally try to avoid with orphans, meaning we do not feel he is able to fend for himself in the wild. He now lives in our 'Polecat Palace', a large purpose built enclosure where our veterinary team can make sure he continues to thrive.
