|Look At That Face: My new family...|
My love for the Hemsley Conservation Centre continues to grow!
As I said on my birthday, after my visit, I had decided to adopt the meerkat mob as my animal charity for the year.
I'm a sucker for anthropomorphising animals and there's something about the meerkats' cute little faces that remind me of Alice (or vice versa).
So having spent time with them, they touched my heart and I wanted to ensure that the slender tailed meerkats (Suricata suricatta) remained part of my life.
This afternoon, my adoption bundle arrived from HCC, in a beautifully tied up gift box, and I am beside myself with glee at the contents...
While there were no surprises, as such, it was just the obvious care and loving attention that had gone into the contents that confirmed for me that I had chosen the right place to invest my money and my emotions.
The pack also includes a complimentary ticket, as if I needed an excuse to return to the HCC.
Since my wonderful birthday treat from Rachel, I have been singing the praises of this small, but perfectly formed, centre to all and sundry.
And can't wait to go back myself and see my new family...
