My oldest daughter has M.E. It is a completely debilitating condition which leaves her with very little energy and a lot of pain and weakness. This same daughter absolutely loves animals and really enjoys going to the zoo, specifically to see the armadillos.
These two things are currently in opposition to each other and it has felt like an insurmountable challenge to plan an ‘animal day’ that wouldn’t wipe her out for the days following it.
Sometimes we can be faced with circumstances or situations that seem impossible. I’m learning that they often just need a lot of creativity and a bit of risk taking to try some new solutions. The answer is out there, it just takes a bit of finding.
After much thinking and searching I came across the wonderful Calum from Cool Creatures who has a veritable menagerie of animals. He brings them along to all sorts of events from gala days to after school clubs to parties and also, most crucially for us, home visits. Did I mention he has an armadillo!
Yesterday, Calum and Ellie, the 3 ringed armadillo paid us a visit and my daughter got to stay in the comfort of her own home AND handle, feed and bath an armadillo!
It turned to be the perfect solution and even better than we could have imagined!
Now for the cute photos!
Calum was absolutely brilliant yesterday and I can’t recommend him highly enough. He was friendly and informative and made sure it was a brilliant time for my daughter. You can find him at https://www.facebook.com/Cool-Creatures-101124869968074/
This isn’t a sponsored post in any way I just want to pass on a great business!
