Finally, I am updating my blog! I am at the vet from 9:00-18:00, and when I came back, the host mom ask me to come for a meal in 1/2hr. I feed Toto for a while, go for a meal, and then, since she is a "mom", I am stuck with her till I get tired. I didn't have a power updating my blog. anyhow. Toto doesn't change his weight much. He is eating and drinking OK, but, he is getting more picky. I know I am spoiling him but, I give him bit more of whatever he loves to eat. He deserves yummy food, he is alone for long time everyday. Toto loves hight. He is a real wardrobe pij. It has been a new environment for him so, he was interested inlots of things in the room, but he settle down at the wardrobe top where there were a lots of craps. Toto, a real pij... When he came out from the crap world, he had a spider net on his tail.
Toto spent most of the time on his basket today. He was taking a good nap as usual. I took a nap as well. He is gonna wake me up middle of the night by making some noise. So, I should be sleeping when he is sleeping!!
There has been a visitor since yesterday. Toto has double personality. He was half sleep and kind of ignoring me till visitor came, but as soon as the visitor came, he made his call often. Is he an attention seeker, or jealousy pij or the both??? He was a good boy, ate sunflower seeds from the guest's hand. So the guest thought that he was a sweet pij.He may know how to succeed.
今日は（も）外は雪で寒いのにトトちゃん水浴びをしました。暖房を付けて寒くないようにしました。どうせ水浴びするなら寒くてもせめて日が出ている日にすれば良いのに。。。まあしょうがない。今日もまたぬいぐるみ乾燥。トトちゃん可愛いなあ。トトちゃんが大好きです。トトちゃんの事が大好きなだけにこれから先の事を考えると。。。私、現在無職。就職先を探しているのだけれど、なかなかみつからない。これから先いつ何処に就職が決まるか分からない。トトちゃんとどうなるのだろう？？？とても不安です。この近くで何がみつかるとよいのだけれど。。。先の事は考えたくない。でも現実逃避もしていられない。何だかなあ。。。 Toto bathed although it was a cold day with lots of snow. I turned the heat on so that he wouldn't be freezing. It was a lot better if he could bath in a sunny day. Oh well... He stuffed toy dried again. Toto is super sweet. I love him to the death. But me liking him this much is making me sad. I am unemployed and doing a job hunting. I don't know from when and where I will find a job. If I cannot find any positions near here, what will happen to me & Toto??? I don't want to think about the future, but I need to face to the reality... Oh gosh...
I washed the empty cage which I had Hattchan in till yesterday. I used to take care of both Hattchan & Toto every morning and late afternoon but today, it was only Toto... I miss Hattchan a lot. I saw some pictures of Hattchan and I missed him even more... Hattchan must be very happy by now cuz he is in a large aviary. I try to think, it's all good for Hattchan. He is happy. BUT, I am bit sad. I understand all the things but my heart needs bit more time. I guess, I'll be good in few days.
Now I only have Toto with me. I can pay more attention to him. Toto often shakes & scratches his head. I think he is feeling uncomfortable in his throat. Poor one...I think the vet knew about his uncomfortable feeling, and her decision of not giving him any medical treatment at this moment was because she considered about risk of an operation.
I took Hattchan to the rehab person. I said good by to him... I miss him... I was almost gonna cry in a train on the way to go there. But it's all good for him, right? The rehab person was really nice. I met her yesterday at th vet when I took Toto to the vet. And we spoke about Hattchan with Hattchan's vet (mainly about his not having a tongue). I know her already so I could bring Hattchan without any worries. She said that she is gonna pay attention if he can eat good, variety of corns. If he can eat good and fly good, she will release him into the wild in spring. If he is not eating good,then she is gonna keep him in her rehab station. If he can be released into the wild, that's the best for him, but if not, it is still better for him living in a large aviary than in a small room. He made it up to here. He deserves a happy life!
Toto is as sweet as usual. He was calling when I was adding some food for Hattchan. Did Toto jealous? that's sooo cute!! 気になる。what's going on?
やっぱり気になる。WHAT'S GOING ON??
バサバサバサーっと。Flap Flap Flap.
夕日に当たるはっちゃん。Hattchan at sunset
こんな手、踏みつけてやる。I hate this freaking hand. Step on it!
はっちゃん、ついに手乗り？ いいえ。敷物をきれいにしている所を踏まれました。本人人間の手の上に乗っていると分かってないと思う。全然どこうとしなかった。おかげさまでバスに乗り遅れました。Is he getting used to me? Hell no. He accidentally stepped on my hand while I was cleaning up his cage. I didn't think that he even knew that he was stepping on human's hand. He didn't get off. Because of this, I missed my bus.
トトちゃんの検査のために獣医さんに行って来ました。私より先に来ていた人で、膨羽して、努力呼吸をしていたセキセイインコを普通の鳥かごにいれて連れて来ていた人がいました。こんなつらそうな子、こんなでかいカゴに普通に入れて来るのではなく小さな箱に入れて保温して連れて来るべきだと思うのだけれど、どうなの？ あまりにかわいそうでじっとしていられなくなったので、おせっかいと分かりながらもインコの為と思い、飼い主に、看護婦さんに診察を待っている間、鳥を保温してもらえないか聞いてみてはどうかと言ったら、この飼い主、『この子は病気だから膨羽している。』と。私が『病気の鳥が膨羽するのは病気で体温が維持できなくて寒いからで、羽を膨らます事によって出来るだけ体温を保とうとしているから。あなたの鳥は寒がっていて可愛そうだから保温してもらった方が良いと思う。』と言ったら、この人、『寒いのは今日は気温がマイナス１０℃だから』と。こいつアホか？待合室は待ち合い広場ではありません。室内です。２０℃ はありました。この人、『とりあえず。ケージに毛布被せる。』と。幸いこの人の番はすぐに来た。空のケージ持って帰っていったから、インコは入院だと思う。そっちの方がインコにとって良いと思う。 ところで、トトちゃんですが、咽にあったクリーム色の点、まだありました。真菌ではありませんでした。腫瘍の可能性があるそうです。でも今まだ直径２ミリ位で、吐いたりしていないし、腫瘍も『可能性』だけなので今の事あまり心配せずに様子見だそうです。嘔吐するようだったら手術をした方が良いかもしれないと言われました。かわいそうなトトちゃん。悪化しないでくれ。今日新しい看護婦さんがいて、トトちゃんその人にも可愛いと言われていました。大人しくて良い子にしていたからかな？ I have been to the vet to check Toto. There was a man with parakeet. The parakeet was breathing really rough and was fluffing up himself. Instead of bringing him in a normal big cage, he should have put him in a small box and put some heat on. Am I right? I suggested him to ask the nurse if she can put the parakeet in a room where they can put heat on. He said to me that the parakeet was fluffing up cuz he is ill. I told him "When the bird is ill they fluff up cuz they cannot maintain their boy temperature. They try to keep themselves as warm as possible by fluffing up. Your bird must be cold. It is better to make him warm" He said "The bird is cold cuz it it -10 degree today" Is he an idiot? It is a waiting ROOM not a waiting SQUARE . It is indoor for god sake. It's over 20 degree. He said to me "I just gonna cover his cage with a blanket." Luckily his turn came really quick. He left the vet with an empty cage. So, I assume the bird was hospitalized. It's better for the bird though. Anyhow, Toto. His yellow dot in his throat is still there. It can be a tumor... But it is really small dot and hi is not vomiting so the vet said at this moment, we don't need to worry about it much (tumor is just an possibility) . If he starts vomiting, it may be better to do an operation on him. Poor little Toto. I hope it doesn't get worse. BTW, there was a new nurse. She said Toto is a cute pigeon. May be he was clam and being a good boy?
ちょっと気取ったはっちゃん。Hattchan posing like a posh
尾羽がダメになる。早く広い所に出せと怒るはっちゃん。 Pissed off Hattchan. He is saying "my tail feathers are broken. Bring me to a larger cage ASAP"
今日はネタがないので写真中心にします。 Not much going on today, so I mainly talk about some pictures I took today
朝一のはっちゃん。早く掃除しろと私を睨みつけています。/Hattchan started his morning by complaining about me not cleaning up is cage yet.
トトちゃんは今日は午前中から小屋の外です。チラ見攻撃で訴えてこられたので、ついつい出してしまいました。 どうもタンスと壁の間が気になるようです。/ Toto was out from his cage from the morning. He was taking a look at me few times telling me to let him out... I was not strong enough. He is curious about the little space between the wardrobe and the wall.
座るのに良いと思いタオルを置いてあげているのに、タオルのない所に座っております。/I set a towel for him but he sat down where there was no towel.
今日は夕方遅くまでふらふらしていました。/He was staying up till bit late.
はっちゃん、今日も一日中餌まみれ。ああ、尾羽が。。。残りの尾羽もダメそうです。。。 / Hattchan was surrounded by lots of food all day long. Oh no, his tail feathers... These are also broken, I think...
Finally Hattchan achieved 450g! (I found that wood-pigeons weight 450g-500g in internet so, I targeted 450g) He is a small wood-pigeon now. I would like him to become medium wood-pigeon before his rehab stars. 25g more... possible??
There is a stone in Toto's cage to prevent his nails are growing, but it was not working well. I cut his nails with my nail clips. He was really good boy while I was cutting his nails. He bathed in the mid-day, stuffed toy dried. With his short nails and clean feather, he is a pimped up pij!
Happy New Year! Both of my pijs got through the terrible firework night. Outside of my window was looking like as if there was a war going on, but Hattchan, he is a tough pij. He was staying clam, same as usual. So, he started normal day today, eating a lot of breakfast. On the other hand, Poor Toto... he was rigid with fear... He could not sleep well doing the night and he is taking a nap from the morning. Anyhow, at least neither of them got injured... I wish 2010 will be a great year for all of you!
鳥好きで、特に鳩が好きです。２００９年の８月末に弱っていた鳩を保護。トトちゃんと名付けて現在ドイツのポツダムで共同生活をしております。/ I am into birds, especially pigeons. I have been sharing a room with a pigeon called Toto which I rescued since August 2009 in Potsdam Germany.
