Thank you Jenn for your tireless help in looking for Neptune, and sending me links to all the found blue quakers.
Thank you for your ears listening to all my tears and cheering on my search.

And thank you again in helping to look for Blue Boy's people. You are one of the blessings on this wonderful forum. I love hearing your parrots in the background from across the whole length of the United States! Your parrots always sound so cheerful.

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Poor Blue Boy. I used to deal with cat bitten birds at rehab all the time. Punctures are the worst. So glad you were there to give first aid and got your vet involved right away. I'll be rooting for both of you!!

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Keeping them really warm, really calm, and heavily medicated with antibiotics. We cleaned the wounds and flushed them out as best we could. It was really hard because with the wild birds the stress of captivity and handling would kill them too. Many times we had to gavage them because they wouldn't eat. I'm glad he is eating and perching, both good signs. You also got him right when it happened so you shouldn't have to worry about maggots. The vets really only supplied the meds, we did everything else because there is no state funding in PA (though it's been probably 10-15 years since I volunteered). If it really swells, I'd contact the vet in case it needs some type of more intensive cleaning or draining.

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Hang in there, and bless you!
This seems like it was meant to be-- not the loss- but the find. I can't think of a more compassionate soul to:
1) care for him
2) look for his family

No matter what happens, he is better off with you than he was in the wild, and I am so happy you found him!

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

I just did the last wound care and antibiotics for the night. The swelling is gone. But I discovered the puncture goes all tge way through into the mouth.....sorta a good news bad news thing.

Also Blue Boy was so much stronger!! Hi bit me and scolded me!!! Yippee!!

Mica21493 gave me some excellent advice about food!!! To offer egg food which I have and will do!! Hadn't even thought of it! And to crumble up some nutri berries for added nutrition!!! I have those too, what a great idea!! Thank you!! Together we are wiser than we are alone. I never stop learning and benefiting from the people on this forum!!!@

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Fingers crossed and every positive vibe sent Blue Boy’s way!!

(Also when I said you’d find him even better humans, I meant better than the ones who lost him, not you. I realized when I read it that it might not have been clear)
