I officially love WWOOFing

Aug 26, 2017

New WWOOFer Emma Currie got in touch with a technical issue and when that was sorted wrote to us, saying: I am actually WWOOFing at moment in Wales; it is brilliant, I officially love WWOOFing. Learning so much.

Here is a cute piccy of Little G farm cat, I had been working in orchard lopping docks, weeds, nettles for a couple of hours. Every now and then stopping to give Little G some love cuddles. Packed up barrow for the day as it was near 6 pm and then had a funny brainwave thinking … I’ll take Little G for a ride, so here he is; of course Little G is not so little as you can see, G’s Lord of The Manor.

He was also laying in the barrow happy to snooze, by the time I got the camera ready on phone he was sat up. So lovely xx He just soaks up the love you give him.

Probs will be the most special of WWOOFing cats for me.

Here is a picture of the winter wood stacking, which I carted in the barrow, took quite a few trips to do it, but I did it! Hope you like my piccies xx 

Emma started us thinking about how important animals are in our lives and to WWOOFing. Some WWOOFers travel with their dogs, some even take their cats and many hosts can accommodate them.

Others, like Emma, find friendship, delight and sometimes great comfort in the animals their hosts share their lives with.

If you have any stories of adventures and encounters with animals please tell us about them by using editor@wwoof.org.uk.
