RIP "Little Man" :(

It is a sad day furry friends :(
As my Mummy was leaving work today and was about to get into her car she heard a really loud squawking. She looked around to see what and where the noise was coming from and she noticed a bird throwing itself around under a parked car. As Mummy works next to a really busy road she assumed the bird had been hit by a car on the busy road and had made its way to the car park next to it. As she walked over to the car it made its way out from under the car (by bouncing) so Mummy bent down and picked it up. It stopped squawking immediately and looked at her as if to say thank you. It appeared to have a broken wing. She took it to her car and wrapped it up so it couldn't throw itself around the car and started making her way to the vet. As she was driving she thought, "which vet?" There were 3 to choose from however Mummy only trusts one of them and that particular vet was 15 minutes away. Mummy thought to herself, the other 2 vets wont even give him a chance, they will just put him down. So Mummy sped off to our favorite healers, 15 minutes away from where she was.
She talked to him all the way there to try and keep him calm. She kept calling him "little man" and telling him it would be OK because she was taking him to a doctor. It seemed to be working. Just before she arrived at the vet he went quiet. Mummy panicked and tried to check on him while still driving. He was still breathing, so she focused on just getting him there ASAP! When she arrived she told the girl behind the counter everything that had happened up to that minute.
Little man had slipped into shock just before they arrived. the nurse said they were going to put him in a warm box and try and give him something to eat and drink before they took any action. If he improved, he would be sent to a carers house to recover and be released to the wild again. But the nurse did say he could deteriorate quickly. Mummy left her phone number so they could ring her and let her know what happens. Mummy didn't even make it home before she got the phone call. When she left, he got worse, FAST. He began vomiting and they believed he had internal bleeding. The healers gave him a needle so he could fly free again with the angel birdies.
This photo is of a bird who looks just like "Little Man". He was a honey eater.
RIP Little Man

Oh, that is SO sad, Suzuki!! But how lovely of your human to help him - I am sure he was so grateful to her.

My humans also rescued a bird with a broken wing last year but they were lucky and it got better at the vet's and was taken to a special bird sanctuary to be released back into the wild.

What a sad story, Suzuki. Your mom is a very kind soul to try to save the bird. We have a lot of them crash into our windows and look like they are dying. But somehow most of them seem to get better and fly away within a few minutes.

Go give you mom a big kiss from all of us.

Woos, the OP Pack

Oh Suzi - your mom is a terrific lady. I'm sorry she couldn't save the bird but there is a very special place in all of our hearts and in heaven for her kindness. You are a lucky dog to have such a special mommy.

Big licks to both of you -
