Our adventure with Pelly has come to an end.
Yesterday morning I went out to feed Pelly and he didn’t come to me like usual. I went to him and tried to entice him with a fish so he would come to the fishing pool…..nope.
I went back in and did some quilting; came out later and the same thing which was strange. Then he tried to stand and fell over! Something is wrong with his foot. I couldn’t find an injury and he was fine last night.
I carried him over by his pool and dipped his fish in the water before I gave them to him so he would get some water to drink. There was so way he could walk so I started making calls to get him some help.
He was picked up this morning and is going to the Macbride Raptor Project. Since he is injured they will now take him. We packed up his food, put him in a large box and said goodbye. I hope he gets better.
Sunday Bob and our neighbor Bill went fishing at a pond for Pelly and brought home a whole cooler of little fish. Pelly was right there to check it out and……started eating!
Later we went to town and bought Pelly a pool so we could work on getting him to feed himself and try and keep the fish alive for awhile.
He was really figuring it out!! Once he finished dinner we had to empty out the pool and move it closer to the sand pile to make it easier for him to get in and out.
He had lots of “pretend” friends, 2 sand piles, a pool and a umbrella!
He always liked sleeping by a sand bag. We will miss you Pelly!
