How on Earth did I miss this about a new Hrafn family member? :jawdrop1: Thank, thank you, thank you for rescuing this sweet miracle baby! :heart: She’s so lucky to have found herself with a new mama with such a big heart. :) There’s no doubt in my mind that she will love her new home.

Klondike and Kodiak are both unisex, Kukiko is a Japanese name for "snow", Kali is kind of a badass goddess and Katniss because your girl kinda survived the Hunger Games out there (even though she might whistle more like Rue 'cause she's a tiel ;) )

And my favorite amputee characters are: Hiccup (from How to Train your Dragon; he's a boy, but it's kind of a neutral name), Imperator Furiosa (from Mad Max) because she's awesome and I love her, Ash (from Evil Dead, again a dude but a neutral name). I counted arm or leg since a tiel's feet count as both. :)

Or ooh, how did I forget Katara?! (from Last Airbender) She's a water bender so she can bend ice! :laugh:

You're really raring for those K names!! :lol:

I loooove the name Katara, but it's already claimed by someone who's waiting for me at the bridge.

If I'm remembering right, クキコ (Kukiko) is a variation of 雪子 (Yukiko), which means "snow child", which is extra extra cute!! 雪 (Yuki) is snow. Y'know, that's pretty cute too...:heart:
I'm sorry, I'm a dumb language dork.

Actually, you reminded me of one of my favourite Japanese names: 子, or Keiko! it means "blessed/lucky child". Pretty fitting, eh? :D

The vet JUST called me with the verdict of the tests:

Tiny 'Tiel is confirmed free of PTFD, chlamydia, polyomavirus, coccidia, giardia, worms, bacterial/yeast/fungal infections, and viruses! Her CBC and CHEM tests, her ultrasound, and her bile acids test came back great!! :starshower:

She's also officially female. ;)

I'm actually kind of...taken aback? I honestly expected some sort of respiratory illness or...something after her ordeal. I mean, she was definitely in shock and dehydrated when I brought her in (not to mention her leg) but dang! No wonder she managed to go so long and fight so hard. She's got a good, healthy system under that pile of ratty feathers. :heart:

It's like a miracle! So glad her tests came back good, and that she is home and happy.

She sure is one tough little survivor!
It’s so good to hear she is doing well and has had all great results from her tests.

Healthy white face, cinnamon, pearl, pied girl Grahamy. Her coloring is a tan instead of a grey.

What an absolute beauty!! :jawdrop1: :swoon:

Seeing Tiny 'Tiel dry and warm at the vet, I realise she looks quite a bit like @sparklepupp's Charlie!
