Tanya, I know you have the strength, the compassion and wisdom to get through this meeting. I hope the social worker will also be there to support and assist. Sending good thoughts your way.

  1. Words fail me. So much sadness-for the innocent birds, for the weary old man and the disabled daughter. But what bothers me is the padlocks on the cages. Seeing the pictures, reading about the conditions leaves me with a dull ache in the center of my chest and despair. But people/angels on earth like Tanya, give a glimmer of hope. Children and animals should never suffer like this. And yes, I believe people who do the rescue work like Tanya are most def. angels among us.

Oh how sad and awful.. Inhumane, yet the people involved are sad too. I usually think people should know better...

But I feel worse for the birds. Skeletal remains .. I'm shaking at this senseless, awful, torture ... Pure torture, for those poor birds. Tanya has a core of titanium, the strength of Hercules, and an emotional fortitude all her own. They have to sign them over, they just have to.

Tanya is emotionally exhausted. Both the father and daughter are in a nursing home, and hopefully will now get help. I guess the wife passed away in 09 and their life fell apart :(
The daughter is 48 (mentally more like 7ish) so I guess the dad would be in his 70s. The daughter kept saying she couldn't let them go because she promised her Mom to take care of them. It broke Tanya's heart but she had to get harsh with her, she showed her the pictures and told her "This is NOT taking care of them"

They left Tanya's friends surrender forms for them to look over and hopefully sign, otherwise animal control will get involved, and instead of staying with Tanya and the fosters they will go into a shelter.

BTW Tanya got the names of the birds, I can only remember that the M2 is Baby Sinclair :heart:(from The Dinosaurs)
They are all going to the Vet tomorrow, wish them well.

In the words of Hemingway: "gradually, then suddenly".
It's not that hard. One illness to get you out of your routine and you start becoming overwhelmed. If you already have too much on your plate to begin with, how do you catch up? I saw how quickly a house can go to crap in a week...

I just came home from a week in the hospital. Totally unexpected and unplanned. My husband tried to keep up with the dogs and Pepper. Sadly, if we had much more he wouldn't be able to handle it alone.

If things go well and the birds get signed over and one of them happens to be a cockatiel that needs a home let me know.
