Jasmine the beautiful barn owl came to visit Barton Lodge residents this week.
Jasmine is very young, only 10 weeks old, and is getting used to all the love and attention humans can give her, much to the delight of our residents and staff. During her visit Jasmine’s very well trained owner filled us in on many interesting facts, such as:
Jasmine keeps her fine feathers in fettle on a mere 6 mice a day, which she swallows whole!
The residents always look forward to any visitors but Jasmine’s visit was a particular success. The residents were all able to hold or stroke Jasmine’s head and back if they wanted to and everyone was very keen to see such a beautiful wild animal in their home.
We thank Jasmine and her owner for visiting us and very much look forward to her next visit.
NO MICE WERE INJURED DURING THIS VISIT!
