Party animals arrive for birthday celebration at Heathcotes Rotherham!
If asked to draw up a birthday wishlist, it’s probably fair to assume that few of us would include a visit from a tarantula and a snake! However, that creepy combination held no fears for one of our residents at Heathcotes Rotherham, where staff arranged a gathering of exotic creatures for a party held in honour of animal-loving service user, PB.
The guest list included everything from reptiles, insects and stinky skunks to bonnie bunnies and birds of prey, including a particularly head-turning owl which was handled by various service users. The owl was a wise choice to please PB, who is known as an avid ‘twitcher.’ His love for birdwatching was reflected in a beautifully crafted birthday cake featuring a feathered friend nesting between a pair of binoculars!
Rachael Hughes, Service Manager at Heathcotes Rotherham, commented on the day:
“PB loved seeing all the animals and the other service users really appreciated the experience too. A big thanks to Leanimals Mobile Zoo for bringing all the animals to the party and making it such a special occasion – the company was absolutely brilliant and I would recommend them to anyone who wants to book something a bit out of the ordinary for an event!
It was certainly an impressive line-up of birthday beasts and bugs – well worth a look, but we might give the tarantula a miss!
