A Small Care Package

I had meant to write another crow update blog post today, but somehow it was a bit hard to focus on pulling the images and words together.

So, instead, here is a small, somewhat random bouquet of things that are helpful for my mental health at this tough time. I hope they help you too.

First, here is Norman the Nuthatch visiting the garden this morning.

It’s just 5 seconds, but I find playing him over and over again kind of restful.

Second, here is Mr. Pants, looking at me from the wires on our morning dog walk.

Crow Therapy is proving to be a lifeline for me at the moment.

Third, in exceptionally good timing we have Luke the Super Emotional Support dog staying with us for the weekend. Triple-strength dog therapy with Geordie and Nina. They take their work very seriously.

Fourth, and last, we need Edgar’s advice …

As an indoor cat he is already a master of both social distancing and extreme cleanliness.

Further advice he would like to share:  stay safe, nap frequently, and be very kind to others.

  1. Dear June.
    My husband and I enjoy reading your insightful and entertaining blogs.
    We love birds and have a 2 yr old
    companion Senegal parrot named Kayli. Thank you for posting encouraging stories and thoughts.
    They are comforting and supportive at this uncertain time. Best wishes.

    Tom, Jacquie & Kayli

  2. Thank you for this care package. Norman the Nuthatch was particularly calming, but truth be told all the critters in the post made me smile with appreciation. Thank you!

  3. Dear June – I’m so glad you have your support crew from the air to the ground! I just LOVE your comments on Edgar: “As an indoor cat he is already a master of both social distancing and extreme cleanliness.” Fabulous. Thanks, Edgar. Thanks, June. <3

  4. Aw, our own mental health is so very important. And yes, some days are easier than others. I totally get that. I used to belong to PATS in Sidney, Sadey Guy was the founder. I took my Jack Russell into San. Pen Extended Care section. You give a lot to so many others, take a day to give to yourself. Cheers, Dori
