外围体育投注My mother found a baby bird just down our driveway.We've suspected that there was a nest of house sparrows there for a while. this morning she found the nest on the ground and one bird already dead. she scooped up the living one and whatever was left of the nest and put it in a small dish. We've been trying to feed him and keep him warm but it looks like he's breathing pretty heavily. we've seen the finches outside but we're not entirely sure what to do here. some advice would be much appreciated.

UPDATE: I've found the nest and managed to get the little guy back in. Unfortunately I've also found another one dead in the branches. However I've also found another one alive! As I was putting the ladder away I saw the little guy hiding in the brush. The house finches have been coming and going to him. Not sure if I should try to put him back as well or if I should leave it for the parents to work out

Final Update: Alright, it's been a few hours now. the finches have been pretty rowdy every time we've gone near the driveway, but the other bird appears to have moved back to the tree the nest is in. not long after that i cant seem to find him, so i assume he's making his way back up the tree (they're junipers so they have lots of branches). the other two have been given a proper burial not too far away. thanks for the help folks!

Back in May, my coworker’s boyfriend found a cat abandoned in one of his buildings. She was locked in, had no food, and was skin and bones. I offered to foster her and then find her a home. It took a while for her to adjust, but she does (sort of) okay here now.

Problem is, she’s very territorial and doesn’t like any other animals. She will attack other cats and with my dog, she will go after him if he’s in a spot that she wants to be or needs to pass him. She does this even though he avoids her completely. She will accept petting sometimes but is not very friendly overall. She is quick to bite and scratch if she’s done wanting pets. If I lean back on the couch without realizing she’s sitting up on the back, she’ll go after me. She doesn’t seem to give much warning either. She’s never sat in my lap or anything like that. She also urinates outside the litter box occasionally. She’s definitely not feral, just not exactly well socialized I guess.

She’s a healthy weight now and about to be UTD on vaccinations now that the low cost clinic is open. She’s already spayed too (ear tip).

外围体育投注I would honestly just keep her if it weren’t for the other cat but my house is very small and I can’t keep them separated forever. I worry that she won’t find a home with this behavior. She would need to be the only animal AND they would have to be okay with her not being loving at all, plus the occasional urinating outside of the litter box.

I just don’t know what to do and feel quite stuck. Thanks for listening to me vent. Any advice appreciated.

I was walking my small dog around the neighborhood when I saw a mom and some children gathered around a little blob. I asked them what it was and they said it was a bunny. He's about as big as both of my small palms and seems to be missing skin from his hind... passenger side leg and the same side of his... side. It looks like a wound, but he may just be missing skin. I was able to pick him and and he's been very still but alert. Breathing shallow but not too fast. I tried calling animal control but it's all wonky with Covid and I couldn't get anyone on the line. Can someone please give me some advice on what to do?

I don't think he's suffered and broken bones. I sponsor a cat colony around the block and we have an upwards of 10 cats, so my guess is that this is the work of one of those nimble guys. I had a really bad experience in trying to rescue a rat two years ago and he died, and I would really really really like to avoid that happening with this guy. Please, any advice will help.


EDIT: I contacted the community members in the TNR fb group I'm in and we were able to get some more information on her condition and make an appointment to take her in, in the morning.

外围体育投注Apparently losing their skin is some kind of defense mechanism for cottontails. I was advised to put her in a warm, dark space for the night and perhaps give her a shallow dish of water and some dandilions/grass clippings. She seems to be okay, for now, and hoping she makes it through the night, and to the wildlife center in the morning. Will post an update, tomorrow.

外围体育投注In the last few days they have taken on a rescue of between 50-100 cats that have been living in horrific conditions. They are in desperate need of supplies. They weren't prepared for a rescue of this size at all. It was thrown on them last minute and they need help!!

Donations Go on their website and donate as much as you can, vets bills are going to be extortionate. Every single cat needs: Flea treatment Worming treatment Vaccinations Neutering As well as other treatments that vary from cat to cat, some including major surgery to help with different deformaties they have.
