Windblown and somewhat discombobulated, Perkins arrived safe and sound at the Macramé Owl Sanctuary today. His journey began before Christmas when he set out from Valleyford, Washington, USA on one way ticket with only a brown paper bag tied in festive string, and a Macramé Showcase magazine to keep him entertained.
The Macramé Owl Sanctuary Team (MOST) were a bit concerned about delays often occurring when travelling during the holiday season. Over the last week, we had been hearing night time owl hoots in the distance, so we did sense that Perkins was near. Last night’s fierce storms across the United Kingdom caused us considerable alarm. Around midday, the rains subsided, and we searched the area for any sightings. It was then that Perkins was spotted. He had become stuck on one of the nearby fences that had been blown about by the 90km winds.
We are pleased to report that Perkins was immediately admitted to the Macramé Owl Sanctuary.
Despite being rather stiff and stunned, we managed to pry him through the gate.
After a soothing cup of tea indoors, clearly still “out of sorts”, Perkins was left to rest comfortably on the sofa.

Initial Assessment and History
Perkins was discovered nearby the Macramé Owl Sanctuary grounds in a confused state due to a severe storm and several days of sleep deprivation. He was prescribed plenty of bed rest, and is expected to recover from his trying trek within several days.
