Rita’s Rescue

Rita the Brush-tailed Basketcase Macrame Owl's Rescue

Variety
Brush-tailed Basketcase Macramé Owl

Admitted
31 August 2010

Initial Assessment and History
Rita was noticed sporadically over a period of almost two years, particularly around the springtime breeding season. She was quite timid and protective of what was thought to be her nest in a plant pot outside an old building in Cardiff. Over time, she appeared to grow weak. We maintained close observation, left food for her, and eventually she became more comfortable around people. Eventually, she realized she needed the support of our team, and decided to voluntarily enter the sanctuary. Her young had long since fledged. She later confessed she had been suffering from empty nest syndrome, and is now content to have found a new family among the other Macramé Owls.

Admitted
18 September 2009

Initial Assessment and History
The long awaited Lavinia arrived today from Minnesota, USA requiring some fluffing, but in otherwise stable condition. She is distancing herself from Lawrence, however, we hope this is just initial shyness, and that the two will pair up in due course.

Madeleine Moves In

Admitted
17 September 2009

Initial Assessment and History
Curious onlookers have been spying on this admission more than any other. Astonishing specimen Madeleine has already caused a stir among sanctuary residents, with her “come to barn” eyes. Whispers of “your nest or mine?” have been heard, and we are vigilant that she may need protection from harassment from some of the males. She clearly possesses magical qualities, and her tassels are outstanding.

Baby Plushkin Betty is sweet as can be. She is clinging to big brother Barney, as she appears to be feeling vulnerable. She is being closely monitored since her arrival with brother Barney from Florida.

Initial Assessment and History
Brother and sister Plushkins Barney and Betty are currently inseparable as they rely on each other for comfort while they settle in, having travelled all the way from Florida, USA. Nervous among their elders, we’re certain they will gain confidence once they find their feet. (They arrived without feet.)
