The neighbor's cat strolls all over and I was for SURE going to take it in. So I did. I then had to read about what to feed it. I called a couple neighbors, animal services, autobon not german..just the bird watching thing--or something locally...nothing. So, I read how to make a concoction of stuff that I had....dog food-check, hard-boiled egg yolk- check, meal worms-check (left over from my beta fish, hot water...so I had to learn how to pry it's little beak open and force the food down it's mouth. I became its 'mommy'.
I was determined to help this little creature live through the night. So at 2 am I set my alarm to go off and fed it...yes, like a newborn. It seemed barely breathing...this morning, at 6am it was more alert and had even had 'movements' yeah! It was being nourished!! I'm so glad!!
I just put it outside, near it's nest, in a diaper box (it's home inside of a home) with a paper napkin nest. It is neat, that cliff swallows are INSECT eaters...so they need the protein for nourishment.
It was neat to even let Courtney pet it! !! I'll have to post pictures soon!
