Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

This will be the story of Blue Boy.

Yesterday i got a call that some saw my lost quaker parrot Neptune.
I rushed over and discovered it was a blue parakeet. We almost caught him, but ten kids rushed over and scared him into a tree about 100 feet up and only 4 feet from a hawk.

So I went home and got my parakeets and came back. Spent a hour or more but he wasn't seen again. And a drenching thunderstorms came through, and it rained most of tge night.

I came back at 8 am this morning to look for him. I played parakeet sounds, and put my parakeets on top of my car . It took about an hour and a half, and he showed up!! He circled and landed in a tree across the street . I walked over and talked go him. Then went back across the street to get my birds and set under the tree. But when I came back he was gone...... so i went looking. I found him back at the bush we saw him in Yesterday. I went 30 feet back to get my birds, net, and food. When I came back he was gone again...

So another half hour goes by. Then tge house I was at, the people called me!@ Their cat had just caught him...
She was surprised I was right outside!!@ she gave me Blue Boy, and I asked for peroxide and q tips. She only had alcohol. I cleaned the puncture on his face, and brought him home.

He is very very thin. With a bleeding hole on his face.

I cleaned it with peroxide. And did a phone consultation with my avain veterinarian. I started him on the antibiotics. And also gave him 1/2 cc of sugar water. I set up a hospital cage for him, and put my radiant heat panel on him.

He is fluffed and very stressed out. He ate a few seeds on the way home from catching him. But since all the wound care and medical attention ..... he is sleeping.

So prayers for Blue Boy. I'm going to fo my very best to save him

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Blue Boy, has perked up a little. He is nibbles on some seed right now. He will get antibiotics and wound care in an hour, and then st bed time. Hopefully we can prevent any cat bite infection. Fingers crossed.

re: Cat bite parakeet Blue Boy

Oh Blue Boy! You’re in good hands now little fella. If Miss Laura can’t find your hoomans, she’ll either keep you herself or find even better hoomans for you.

You have him quarantined, right Laura?

Oh heck yes he is isolated!! Yes I will keep him if I dont find his people. I have 2 male parakeets already so one more is fine. But I prefer he gets to go back to his family!
Darn MBS strikes when aren't even going into pet stores!!!! Lol

Darn that MBS indeed Laura!! If sweet little Blue Boy is going to recover, his best chance is with you! Great job with catching him and keeping him safe!
