Thank you and goodbye

This is the last post for Animalia. Again, we want to thank you for the six years we were open, and we particularly want to thank the volunteers.

Several people have emailed us asking about boarding and other services. We are no longer in the pet trade. We will not be working for another pet store. We can no longer board birds or make recommendations or pass on messages. That phase of our lives is over, and we are on to new things. We have maintained friendships with some of you – you know who you are – but we can no longer provide the advice we used to give when the store was open.

Several people have also asked us where Jack and Lily are. They are both in new homes, where they’re very happy. Further than that we will not say, to protect the privacy of the people who now have them. It’s not fair to them to tell everyone that they have Jack or Lily and open them to the demands of people who want to visit. We understand that many people loved both birds – we loved them ourselves and were simply not able to keep them. It’s best to let them have their new homes in peace.

We know we’ll be missed – we’ve been told many times, and we appreciate knowing that. We’d like to think that Animalia made a difference for people, that we gave good information and provided good products and service. We enjoyed it while we were there; now we need to move on. Thanks for understanding that.

David and Elizabeth
