A couple of weekends back, Pilgrim Dad was in an adventurous mood so we piled the family into the truck and headed north with no destination in mind – really!
We found ourselves in the Seletar area, and flipping open the street directory, our curiosity was piqued by a box marked “The Animal Resort”. So we drove over and – lo and behold! – found hidden treasure.
The Animal Resort, located at Seletar West Farmway 5, is a mini-hub of pet services. You can buy, board, groom and train your pet there, and also find most of what you’d need to care for Fluffy.
But what was most charming for us was the farm aspect. Aside from retail and services, the facility is also set up as a farm experience, allowing visitors to come up close to observe, interact with, and feed the animals. We saw some geese and crown cranes, a turkey, a swan, a peacock, some rabbits and hamsters too.
Athos’ first comment was “This place stinks!” (Pilgrim Mom cringes at her firstborn’s urban sensibilities.) But very soon the boys were having a smashing time feeding the animals, and we went through perhaps 6 packs of different kinds of animal feed.
The only pity was that Aramis was not with us (having his afternoon nap at Grandpa and Grandma’s house). So we’re certainly going back again soon!
