COPD and Pets
Mom has been really sick. She spent weeks in the hospital through October and November. She has been on oxygen since she has been home. We have been really worried about her.
BUT, I overheard a conversation that dad and her were having and I don’t know if I should tell my feathered brother and sisters.
Mom and Dad were talking about that they might have to, oh what did they call it, oh yeah – downsize the birds. I think that means that they are going Order Generic Cialis Online without Prescription to have to find new homes for some of my family. What about me? Am I going to be downsized?
Oh I’m scared. But I’m more scared for mom. Some days she seems fine without the oxygen for a few hours, but then if she is around the birds she has to go back on for the rest of the day.
I know that mom is really upset because her and dad have tried so many things that could help them keep everyone. They changed it so that all the birds are in one room. They put more than one of those air thingy’s. But it does not seem to be enough.
Dad is upset because he can’t decide who needs a home. Mom says that Robin and Kiwi should be separated because Robin is a bully around Kiwi and he can’t stay nice. When Robin is not around Kiwi is really cool. But dad says that they are brother and sister and have always been together, though not in the same cage, but next to each other.
Kazoo’s muskie smell really sets mom off. But mom doesn’t want her to go, but she needs to breath more. Sebastian is a happy bird. They said that they know since they are going to find him a home it will be a good home for him. He will adapt ok. Could take a little time, but he will be ok. He is such an entertainer that the new mom and dad will praise him enough that he will keep doing it. The only thing dad is upset about is that he will be calling someone else Father.
Mom says that JJ is staying no matter what. Because of his history, Mom told him a long time ago that he would have a home for life. She vowed that he would never be hurt again. He loves dad so much and mom says that JJ needs someone that loves him.
Mom loves him too only she knows that she can’t really touch him, not because she can’t breath, but because it was a woman who hurt him and he will only let her give him little rubs on his beak or top of his head. If she tries to hold him – he gives her a really bad bite so mom won’t do that anymore and she said she is happy just to keep him safe and that dad and he has a great relationship. If he were to bite dad like he has bit her then they would not be the right family for him. But that is not the case.
Do I say anything to my brothers and sisters? Do I warn them or wait until they make a decision. Does anyone have any suggestions for mom and dad so that they can keep everyone, because it could be me next.
If you can think of anything, please let us know ok. I really don’t want anyone to go away, but I don’t want my mom sick anymore.Tagged with: adoption • African Greys • asthma • Beagle • biting • COPD • dander • dog • dogs • feathered siblings • grooming • human dad • human mom • humor • interesting pets • JoJo The Grey Rescue • parrots • Peach-Front Conures • pet • pets • re-homed • re-homing • rescues • trusting
