Rio and Brazil win gold for chirpi­ness

Can you give an an­i­mal a lov­ing home and a new start in life?

Harefield Gazette - - ANIMAL NEWS -

IT’S too darn hot! Af­ter a tricky start the sum­mer seems to have found its form and is re­ally heat­ing up. As is the Bri­tish way it’s not long be­fore we hear ‘it’s too hot for me!’ and ‘I need some rain for the gar­den.’ Keep­ing cool be­comes some­thing of a chal­lenge as all the big stores have long sold out of fans and cool­ing de­vices so the next best thing is to throw open the win­dows and let some air in.

The only draw­back? If you have left the door to the budgie or par­rot cage open they may just pop out for a look around and not find their way back! Dur­ing pe­ri­ods of hot weather we get lots of calls re­gard­ing “stray” birds and, if they have taken the op­por­tu­nity to fully stretch their wings they could end up a long way from home so they are of­ten very dif­fi­cult to re­turn to their homes. And that is how we came by these two lit­tle chaps.

Rio (blue) and Brazil (yel­low) are ju­ve­nile males who were found in dif­fer­ent ar­eas. They are get­ting on fa­mously to­gether and spend most of the day chirp­ing away to each other (we think they are ex­chang­ing sto­ries of their es­capes).

Do you have a nice big aviary with space for these two happy chap­pies? If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to Rio and Brazil then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

The late start to the sum­mer also de­layed the kit­ten sea­son but we now have lots of lovely lit­tle chaps and chapesses look­ing for for­ever homes. They are all mi­crochipped and neutered (if they are too young you will get a voucher so this can be done at a later date) and will have had a health check and their first vac­ci­na­tion.

We have a whole range of colours, sizes and per­son­al­i­ties so there is bound to be one that suits you and, if not, why not choose one of our older cats in­stead?

If you think you could of­fer a for­ever home to any of the other cats and kit­tens we cur­rently have in our care then please call us on (020) 8966 9688 or email us at: info@ rsp­camid­dle­sex.org.uk.

You can see more pic­tures of Rio and Brazil and many of the other an­i­mals (rab­bits, cats and kit­tens) in our care on our Face­book page https://www.face­book.com/RSPCAMNW Don’t for­get you can fol­low us on twit­ter too @RSP­CAMID­DLE­SEX

And fi­nally.. we still need loads of soft toy an­i­mals for our fundrais­ing events so while the kids are on school hol­i­days why not get them to sort out their cup­boards and help us care for Rio and Brazil?

Just drop them in to one of our shops www.rspca-mid­dle­sex.org.uk/how-to-find-us/
