:agree: And she did save it the pain of either starving or death by predators.

He would have had his brain hatched out my other birds if I left him there, and if I kept him he would spend the entire time with a tummy ache since I didn't know if I fed him the right things since I don't know what kind of bird he was. And even if the food didn't slowly kill him he would surely be eaten by a cat later on or starve to death because he don't know how to survive alone...


At least it would have went out with honor instead of dying instantly to a car tire.

What's the honor in having your brain hatched out while being cooked alive in the sun because you got kicked out of the nest?:s

Re: Pets of Keypicking

Euthanizing an animal is not an easy thing to do.
It's common to second-guess yourself: "did I do everything I could for the animal, within my means?" or "was I as humane as possible?"
Sometimes the situation is clear cut but other times, it can be hard to know where and when exactly to draw that line.
I don't envy anyone who has to make that choice, regardless of whether it's for a wild animal they've run across or for a beloved pet that's been a companion for ages.

Indeed, it must have been a hard choice.

Good point.

And MBI is right...the decision to put down an animal is never an easy one. Railyn, I can tell that you were genuinely trying to do what you felt was right.

I pondered this a little yesterday, and I honestly think most of us just reacted to how descriptive you were about the method, lol! :hammering:

Reading through it, it's like "here's a cute dog, here's another cute dog, oh...that bird's kinda messed up....vroom, vrooom....here comes the CAR!"

I think that is just human nature. If you had made the same post and just used the words, "so I had to put it down" no one would probably have blinked, lol. Anyway, I appreciate your honesty.

On that note, I gotta get some more cats on here....

Very sad to say my little Lottie has gone :( She had 3 lumps removed in the past and she went in for a 4th to be removed. The vet called and said the operation had been a success and she was recovering well and to come pick her up and take her home. So very happy, we collected her (and paid the vet a small fortune) and was taking her back home when she suddenly went downhill very quickly and died just before we got back. Just like that.

I know this sounds like a really dumb post when real people are dying and she was only a rat but pets can become part of your family and Lottie was a big part of ours. She's often let herself out of her cage so she could come and cuddle up to my neck in bed at night. I'd wake up with her fast asleep on me...Sweet dreams, you were worth every penny.

Re: Pets of Keypicking

Yeah, that was sad to hear when you mentioned it on chat last night.

I always think it don't matter how small they are, they still mean a lot. And more so when you work hard to sort out their medical issues.

When you first posted Lottie's pic she was my favourite .... best ears in the thread :smile:

Yep, it's sad news, Hux. RIP Lottie.

Re: Pets of Keypicking

Just trapped and released three feral cats in our neighborhood (Hinkley, Basil and Weenie) We feed them daily so felt we should try to keep them from multiplying. They were not super big fans of the trapping process, but we did the best we could to make them comfy. They are all back now and snooozing in the yard!
