NEWS - July 2012


Did You Know..

That we have two rescued parrots sharing our kitchen. They are both African Greys and we are looking to rehome then through Parrot Rescue as we feel that they could give them a better environment than the one they have with us. Barney, who can be rather foul mouthed, was the casualty of a marital dispute that went wife said to husband “either the parrot goes or I do” and you can guess the rest. We must say in the lady’s defence that we understand. Rocky’s owner died and he was bequeathed to us. They both love food, anything as long as it’s not parrot food – crisps, biscuits of any description, cake- and Rocky will bang and shout until he gets something. Of course they love waiting just until we sit down and then the phone rings, vehicles reverse in the yard, the dogs bark and the cockerel crows to name a few of their joint dubious talents.



Had been hanging around the village for a couple of weeks and certainly looked very much the worse for wear. So Harry and Mum Mandy, who both help at weekends, picked Robbie up and took him home. Well, Robbie certainly landed on his feet, all four of them. From being starved, bedraggled, dirty and ill, some weeks and negative blood tests later, he has been transformed into a happy, affectionate, sweet little cat. We think he is about 4 years old and once he is really well he will be going for that visit to the vet, returning with less than he went with, which will be kindly paid for by our Trustees who also run their own cat rescue. Robbie has found a permanent home with Harry and Mandy and they have found a very loving character in return.


Penny the Pigeon

Thank you to everyone who came up with names for the rescued pigeon. We decided that she was a girl so thank you Robin Millward for naming her.

Brave and Happy George

We are delighted to report that George the lamb, whose legs were deformed when he was born, has now had his first few days free of splints and support bandages. He needs to be able to bend his knees now and build up muscle. All is going well so far and both the vet and us are optimistic. George himself is happy and loves his bottle and now can keep up with his friends. Thank you for rooting for him keep it coming!

Carla and Iris

Some years ago Iris rescued Carla and took her home, she was quite small, and they spent many contented hours together sat on the settee watching all Carla’s favourites on TV. Eventually the settee got rather small for them both so a neighbour, who has supported the Sanctuary for some time, suggested that Iris may like to bring Carla here. Well Iris did. She comes to visit Carla every year and every year Carla remembers and greets Iris with a lot love. However, we regret that we can’t supply Carla with her favourite programmes we don’t have a settee big enough, sorry Carla.
