Ughh...people..:( I sent an e-mail explaining that a bird doesn't even have to be bitten to die from a cat. I asked how bad is the foot. I asked if she would take him to the vet, but seeing the bird is posted on CL, that is unlikely.

LOL...there is a breeder in Miami with the same attitude, and last year posted on CL that she was giving away 3 baby tiels that had lock-jaw for free if the person would take them to a vet. She was capable of doing this but had the same comments on vets.

IMHO this is reckless disregard for the bird, and also for the next person that assumes a bird that has a potential problem.

Seems they were more worried they spent $200 than that the dog died!

The reply they sent me~
"If i could aford that ,i would ,I think the bird injured itself mainy .thanks for your concern"

Odd they told you they do not trust vets, and told me they couldn't afford it.
This was the message I sent~
"I am so very sorry that your bird was attacked by a cat. Unfortunately, most birds that a cat even touches, they do not have to bite, will die. It's because cats posess a bacteria called Pasteurella. Can you get your bird to an certified avian vet? Dr. Diaz at Lake Howell Animal clinic in Maitland is the one I trust for my birds. I recommend you put the bird in a hospital cage or tank, put a heat source nearby like a light or heating pad to keep him warm.
> If you need more info let me know. How bad is the foot?"

I sent another e-mail, and offered to take him to my CAV. He sent his ph# and I just spoke with him. He is going to let me take him. :) He says he doesn't see an injury, but the bird favors the leg. I just have to wait for my dryer to be delivered from Home Depot today, then I can either go and get him today or tomorrow. Of course Troy does not know...yikes..I hope he doesn't become angry.:o:
I just want the bird to have a chance, then I can find a good home for him.
This guy told me he is in construction and poor right now. He doesn't even have heat. I asked if the cage was nice, and maybe he could post it up on CL to get his money back.{in the e-mail he told me he paid $100 for him, but just wanted him to have a good home.} He said he actually had two cages, and maybe he would get another bird some day..*sigh*
He said he had received many e-mails, but I was the only one who offered to take him to the vet.

...this schmuck is why I stay far away from craigslist..... I believe that I have lost all my tolerance for this sort of nonsense.

"My pet is hurt, I think ill make a post on craigslist".... :mad:

Poor Bird.

I'm so happy to hear you were able to help.

He also started to tell me a bit of his history. The bird has been passed around, was originally found loose, then a friend they call 'Nutty' had him and may have abused him.:(:(

Done and back..OMG what a mess. I do not have much time right now, but need all the help and prayers I can get. He is absolutely a gorgeous red/blue Rosella is my guess. He is very weak, cannot walk. I am thinking broken leg. I have to run right now to set him up a hospital tank, and I know Troy will be calling very soon for me to pick him up from the truck. I stopped and got some abba keet seed, probiotics,and a cuttlebone. Any and all help greatly appreciated. Gary, I could sure use your ph # again. Thanks everyone. I will be back asap.

Ok..I have to run and get Troy, but here's a quick update.
I spoke with BF quickly, with her help I set him up in a tank, with towels, heat pad, and food. He's STARVING!{the guy had sunflower seeds and cheerios in his bowl} So he's eating, that is great. BF told me to get pedialite, and by my description she says he's a Crimson Rosella. I have to go..I'm sorry, I will be back on as soon as I can, and answer pm's. Thank you all!!!:hug8:
