In my opinion an adult female we assume ibera of that age will need a very large table.
or you will need ear muffs ! I suppose you can keep her in overnight on colder days but that old and probable size far better off out in the garden too. Be interested to hear how you get on - how exciting for you. if in doubt with weeds get some florette crispy , prices vary but on good days at co-op , sainsburys it is £1, then grow your own as it'll save money long run also.

She will eat !! masses ! good luck and keep us posted, we love new TK's CB

Hi CB. She seems to be doing well. Just settling in. She is eating most of what i give her. Not seen her drink yet though but I’m watching out. Going to do another bath Wednesday night as I know they soak up moisture that way too. In terms of outside space I think I will need to make a huge outdoor table of sorts that will be soiled and grasses etc. As we have dogs and very limited soil space which the dogs use so she can’t use that too.
I will need to maybe make a new indoor table myself. Or at least attempt to.
I will post pictures tomorrow (if I figure it out) for ID her and opinions
Any other advice in the mean time will be appreciated highly
Thanks
