Sanctuary Anniversary Celebration

This month, the Macramé Owl Sanctuary celebrates its third year of operation. To mark the occasion, the MOST (Macramé Owl Sanctuary Team) and some of our Macramé Owl Residents had a delicious lunch extravaganza at Nando’s in Merthyr Tydfil. The food was awesome!

Our First Ever Monetary Donation

Madeleine and Viv on the phoneLast week, we had a surprising telephone call from a Macramé Owl fan. At first, Viv wasn’t sure what the call was about, and was quite perplexed. Macramé Owl Madeleine was also mystified.

Someone at the end of the line wanted to make a monetary donation to the Macramé Owl Sanctuary. We had never had one of those before! We were all a bit befuddled.

Eventually, after an extensive inquiry and thorough discussion, it was assessed that the individual (who wishes to remain anonymous) wanted to make a pledge for a donation of 12 pence to our efforts. Well, we were absolutely thrilled! 12 pence buys approximately 5 inches (or 12.7 cm) of jute towards Macramé Owl sutures.

Viv was ecstatic! Ciaran was so chuffed, he was inspired to deposit 2 pence of his own pocket money towards a now growing owl-bank. Let’s hope the trend continues!

If you too would like to donate to the Macramé Owl Sanctuary, please click our PayPal donation button on our Macramé Owl Appeal page on our website. No amount is too small, even if it’s “chicken feed”!

Barney’s Back!

Barney enjoys summer

What with the lovely weather we had in Wales yesterday, Barney decided to head out for a stroll to enjoy the sun. It’s rare for a Macramé Owl to go out on his own, but Barney’s quite responsible, so we didn’t think much about it at the time. We all just went about our normal business here at the Macramé Owl Sanctuary office.

Suddenly, Ciaran spotted Barney at the window!

This was a real shock, as the Sanctuary is on the first floor of the building. I was very concerned for Barney’s safety and called for MORE help. (Viv is our “MORE”: Macramé Owl Rehabilitation Expert.)

Viv manages to safely coax Barney into a nest. Phew! When we asked Barney whatever possessed him to climb up to the first floor window, the silly sausage admitted he’d forgotten his keys!

 All in a day’s work at the Macramé Owl Sanctuary!
