It is with broken hearts we have to inform our friends that Magic our Tropical Screech Owl has flown over the rainbow bridge to join Merlin.

Magic joined us along with his sister Merlin at only 3 weeks old and has been part of our family for 14 years, he has known nothing but love and kindness his whole life. He passed with natural causes and lived longer than his breed's expected life span.

We will remember him with a smile and take comfort in the huge amount of happiness and confidence building he did with our youngest clients and visitors.

This is truly the end of an era for Hoots and we will miss our wee guy, however the gruesome twosome will be reunited after two years and that helps to soothe our 💕

Fly high wee man, we love you always
