We were doubly lucky here this week. A kind couple named Beverley and Ian have been very supportive of our rescue animals. This week, Beverley brought us FIFTEEN boxes of produce for the animals, from the Produce Depot on Carling in Ottawa. The produce manager Mo kindly donated these to us!!
We got the most amazing array of beautiful fruits and vegetables, including some cactus fruit and mangos! And the quails had their first peaches ever...
...and were VERY impressed!!
And also this week, the Nav Canada Centre in Cornwall filled two bins for me with their salad bar leftovers! They are going to do this for us twice a week now, so the animals will have a constant stream (and great variety of!) fresh fruit and veg. Here are the birds enjoying some of yesterday's haul:
Buttercup came to check things out as well.
Carlton was so impressed...
...he called his brother Richard over to check things out!
And Bert was THRILLED with the bok choy from Produce Depot.
In fact, everyone was thrilled!
Genny is waiting for her bok choy.
Nothing nice for the animals in the dead of winter than a feast of fresh produce!
As did Hawkeye.
My friend Lori works at Nav Can and set up this whole fruit/veg thing through them. I am beyond thrilled. It was so nice yesterday not to have fill 3/4 of my grocery cart with fruit and veg for the animals!
HUGE thanks to Nav Canada AND Produce Depot. I am deeply touched by everyone's kindness!
Meanwhile, in the house...
...three Greeks (Honey, Archie and Daisy) were enjoying the central heating along with a Canadian (Pip in front!)
...kept a wary eye on Louise!
Have a wonderful weekend!
