- 1 nanday conure Black Jack, 1 Brotogeris parakeet Whiff, 1 ring neck dove Eliza, and 6 society finches (3 are tame). RIP my parent pairs of societies and my little gouldian finches
Hey everyone, it's been a while since I've been here But hope everyone is well . So last night I took in a cat I found in my backyard. He was hiding and crying in my window well, so I put some gloves on and scooped him up. He was too weak to fight, so he was very calm. He is VERY thin and is covered in feces, urine, and dirt matted into his fur and paws and his eyes, nose, and mouth are covered in crust and gunk. I fed him some canned food mixed with water and sweet potato baby food (good for diarrhea and hair balls). I put him to bed in a kennel with some towels so he's nice and warm. He made it through the night and I fed him the same thing today minus the sweet potato. He has no fleas, thank goodness, and is very sweet. Could not be happier sitting in my lap, purring and kneading his paws. Today I cut off some of the matted clumps, cleaned his eyes and mouth, and soaked his paws a little bit. He can barely walk and is very dehydrated so we are going to give him an IV. Tomorrow at work I'm going to talk to a lady involved in cat rescue and see what his options are. He is geeting stronger but please send prayers for him. Anything else you think I can do? I was going to give him some plain pedialyte tonight with chicken baby food for taste because he won't take plain water. All suggestions arr appreciated and I'll see if I can get some pictures up!
