Think Good Thoughts

But no prayers, please.


Henry in healthier times

My lovely African grey parrot, Henry, is very poorly. He has a chest infection, and has disquised his illness and weight loss, till last night he just stayed on the floor of his cage. His head was turned to the left, and he had trouble gripping and balancing.

I got an emergency appointment for him this morning at the bird vet's, who was quite concerned. He's had an injection with lots of goodies in it. He's just woken from a sleep and is munching on some seed, but I must persuade him to drink, preferably the honey water I've prepared.

He has to go back on Monday morning, but the vet is at an even more distant surgery - bird vets are few and far between, and get spread thinly - so I've had to cancel a blood test for rheumatism for myself, otherwise I'd miss the annual Vixen convention in London with Eliza, Diane and Ann.
