|Poor Little Guy|
Nathan and I were out flying his kite this evening and we decided to check the mail.
The dogs followed us to the mail box and
Little Red (Black Lab mix) found this Cardinal lying in the road.
She had it in her mouth and I think she had plans to eat it!
Nathan was freaking out!
To be honest, so was I.
The poor little thing looked dead.
Miss Lady (German Sheppard) came over to see
what all the fuss was about
and pushed it with her nose as if to say "get up".
I picked him up and he chirped, cried, I don't know,
but I did know he was still alive.
Nathan and I brought him into the house and placed him
in the old bird cage along with some dead grass,
water and some johnson grass seeds.
One of his eyes is not so good and
I figured he wouldn't make it past the night.
An hour or so later he is hopping
around the cage looking for an escape.
I had to clip mesh around the watering bowl holes
lest he get stuck trying to get out.
|Poor Little Guy Looking Much Better|
Steve thinks he might be blinded in that one eye, it does look bad
but, he does seem to be feeling better.
I've turned down the lights and
now he's resting more comfortably.
What should I do?
Let him loose in the morning into the trees where they hang out?
Keep him a few days to see how he's doing?
I'm afraid he'll hurt himself more trying to escape!
He does look better than when we found him!
