There is a special bond that is shared between a rescued animal and their loving rescuer. One could never have imagined the heartwarming relationship that would bloom and flourish between Swoop, the magpie, and his rescuer’s family – including the cat!
Swoop is a magpie who was rescued from the roadside when he was but a tiny bird. It took months of love, and attention to get the little birdie back into good health, but now that Swoop’s all grown up, they’ve got the closest bond you’ve ever seen.
Some say there is no such thing as coincidence and for this man and his magpie, these words ring true. He found little Swoop on the very day that he learned of his father’s terminal cancer diagnosis.
Grateful for all the time spent together, Swoop’s Australian owner and friend says that he is very lucky to have had the little one to take care of, giving him a much-needed distraction during the difficult time.
