I rescued a hummingbird on Friday. Drove 234 miles to deliver it to the rehab places (that's round trip) on Saturday. Called them today, it was an adult (just very small) but it seems to have some kind of internal injury because it can flap its wings but can't actually fly. They are going to watch it and feed it for a few more days. I keep hoping it will fly.

Dean, the cat, is underweight. I need to take him back to the vet. He's eating more, so that's good but not putting on weight. I found another poultry free grain free cat fodo but it's twice as expensive as the Natural Balance. I think I'll buy it and mix it with the Natural Balance and see how he does.

I keep wondering if it would be bad to feed him kitten formula to try and fatten him up a bit.

When I adopted a half-starved 9-month-old cat that was so small I could hold it in my hand, the vets advised feeding it kitten food as a supplement, because that has more vitamins in it than adult cat food. There are also cat vitamins, and special treats; what food you can get in to them that stays down is good.

I bought some kitten formula. Dean has really bad GI problems if he eats any cat food with chicken, turkey, duck , or any kind of grains and he refuses to eat wet food. Although I have found he will eat beef jerky so he gets some beef jerky treats. His sister lost a bunch of weight and then died suddenly so I kinda wonder if there's just something wrong with him, somethign that would be expensive to try and diagnose and fix.
