Hug An Alpaca!

The residents of Cleeve Lodge and Manor Cottage had a delightful day at Manor Cottage Residential Home with some very special guests - alpacas! These friendly, curious, and intelligent animals have a unique ability to calm people down. Did you know that when you snuggle up to an alpaca, your body releases oxytocin, a hormone that can help you feel less anxious and reduce your blood pressure and heart rate? The alpacas made sure to visit every resident, including those who were unable to leave their bed. It was a truly fantastic experience for everyone involved!
