Bird Trauma!

Today, we had a trauma of sorts at our house.  A "bird" trauma.  To make a long story short, we have a new family member.....meet Polly.

I think Polly used to belong to someone but escaped.  He/She was found in our yard this afternoon by our cat!  The poor bird tried to get away, but it looks as though it's wings have been clipped.  He/She is somewhat traumatized from the experience of being in the mouth of the cat, but it seems to be holding it's own at this point.

We had to make a quick run to the store to get a cage and some food.  I hope this bird makes it as my kids are already attached emotionally.  I've tried to prepare them for the worst as I would hate to have them wake up in the morning with the bird on the bottom of the cage....stiff as a board!  We shall see.

So now we have 1 dog, 2 cats, 4 fish and a bird.  St. Francis, pray for us!
