Tubs & Shy

Tubs and Shy came to Hopefield after finding themselves both looking for a home. 

Tubs came from a home environment, as an unwanted pet. She was being kept in a small dog crate, with no stimulation. Because her needs weren’t being fulfilled, she became severely overweight. 

Shy had originally come from a zoo background. She was excluded from her colony, due to the hierarchy of the group. 

She was moved to ‘Happy Endings Rescue’ based in Kent where they moved her into an enclosure side by side with Tubs. Both meerkats had begun to lean against the mesh towards each other. After serious consideration, they decided to move them into an enclosure together. Happy Endings Rescue were no longer able to keep the pair, and asked Hopefield if they could give them both a home for life.
