:omg: how scary. I would have been frantic too! Try to keep her warm and not moving around a lot. Is she acting normal? Is she showing any signs that she is hurt? Have you checked her for cuts? Keep an eye on her today and tonight to see is she acts normal. Can she walk normal?

you're not terrible Emily. Accidents happen. I almost broke Rudy's legs this morning...he flew onto a drawer edge that I was sliding shut...it's the kind on rollers that slams quickly and hard. I caught it just in time.
Sending good thoughts for Cookie and you :heart::heart:

Just be diligent about watching her today. Let us know if she starts acting more normal in the next few hours. I am sure she is just shaken up and afraid. If I was her I would be too! Don't worry we all know it was an accident. I accidentally caught Squeeky's feet when I went to go close my bedroom door. He likes to hang out up there and I didn't see him. Luckily he did a little yelp and only had a small bruise.

Accidents happen, its not your fault! Sending healing and comforting thoughts Cookie's way. Sounds like she's had a bit of a scare, but is otherwise all right. Keep an eye on her and let us know, we'll be waiting for the update that says she's back to her mischievious self again :)

I have an idea for you:) which surprises me actually...
At the cabinet shop we use a guide, pretty expensive though, but you can not slam it shut. you can try, but it just wont happen. i think they were called Blum motion, can check for you if you want.



Im sorry you and Cookie had a scare. You are a great bird mommy, maybe Cookie just needs snuggles and reassurance for the day:hug8:
