i mixed some cream cheese with a little cinnamon and sugar and then stuffed it into some strawberries and raspberries
I’m having to vacuum my entire room with a handheld vacuum cleaner (meant for spot cleaning) that doesn’t even work very well in the first place
what happened to her toe? why was it amputated
her toe was accidentally closed in a cage door and Rodger didn’t make a peep so it wasn’t noticed immediately. it was just a really bad, unfortunate accident, and the person who did it feels awful; we all do, as you can imagine. :< everyone in the house (and just about anybody who meets her) loves Rodger to death.
thank goodness for good avian vets, though. this is just a very important reminder to always have a veterinarian ready to call in case of emergencies; we hadn’t had a vet set up for Rodger yet, so we were panicking to find someone when this happened
so my mom and I brought Rodger back to the vet today, she got a free checkup just to see how her toe is and everything. Rodger is doing well! the swelling in her foot is going down and so far it looks like it’s healing nicely. (please note that the swelling was happening before the amputation and wasn’t a result of the surgery)
Rodger absolutely loves the vet and her assistant, she gets really excited about seeing them and gives them lots of nuzzles, cuddles and kisses. they said that Rodger is one of the friendliest, most well-behaved birds that’s ever come into their office c: I’m a proud bird-momma
she’s all snuggled up in a soft blanket on my lap right now. she’s been keeping me busy!
ARE YOU FU CKING SHITTING ME
If you had told me earlier today that this song could also be a warrior queen’s battle chant, I would have looked at you funny
STOP THE GODDAMNED BOAT.
Listen to this. If you’re my friend, LISTEN TO IT
don’t look at me like that
I’m so mad at how well this goes.
THIS IS FUCKING BEAUTIFUL MY ENTIRE NIGHT HAS JUST BEEN MADE

From one bird mama to another, I wish her a swift recovery. <3

I didn’t know you had a birdiebeb! I hope she recovers well. <3
thanks, same here! i’m taking her in for another checkup on wednesday so the vet can make sure she’s healing fine and everything. <3
Rodger is half awake and she’s ferociously blowing kisses out of pure malice and angrily shoveling pellets out of her food dish
she is not a fan of her cone, oh man
oooh no poor baby 8c I hope recovery goes smooth!
I hope so, too! I’ve been awake for over 24 hours but I don’t want to sleep until I know she’s safe and secure for at least long enough for me to get a little bit of rest, haha
i set up a soft cozy box for her to chill in until i know she’s strong enough to be out and about and in her castle of a cage. i don’t want to take any chances especially right after surgery, aaa
Rodger had to get a toe amputated at the vet today. She’s still pretty loopy from surgery, we just got home a little while ago. She’s had her medications and now she’s snoozing on my lap, being warm and cozy. She gets to wear the cone for two weeks.
Even with a hurt foot, she seemed to absolutely love being at the vet. She loves meeting new people and the veterinarian and her assistant were super nice, knowledgeable, and very considerate about making sure Rodger was comfortable with them.
