Mother Budgie Lost All Use Of One Leg ? in Health Questions and Tips Posted August 18, 2007 Of course if you know you wouldn't be able to take care of animals, it's best not to have one but there is a difference in money being tight in someone life during a time then not being able to afford pets. Now I think that was very rude and judgmental because I had said that right now money is tight, doesn't mean I can't take care of my animals. That is very unfair of you because you have no idea what is going on, someone could have a major event happen, where it could take all of their income away, so would that then be right for you to say what you did? As in anyone's life, when it comes to children or pets, sometimes things might become hard to pay, specially when you have other mouths to feed and take care of. So since I ask someone what they paid for service, makes me unable to take care of my birds, in your opinion where I should give them up. Now I didn't say I wasn't going to take them to the vet, like I said the biggest problem is there isn't a Vet close by that specializes in birds, so that makes it very difficult to bring my little bird to the vet if its hours away. Like I said I was hoping there was something I could do at home, and I wasn't asking for anyone to diagnose her or tell me what to do for no cost, I just wanted some advice, not someone being judgmental when you have no idea what is going on in our life to make such comments. That would make anyone upset specially if their birds are their children, but because they are like my children, doesn't mean the world sees them that way. So I don't have any control over where a Bird Vet where to take location or that health care for pets are not like children or humans where if in an emergency I was able to take my bird for care then be billed or be able to make payments specially when I don't live in the same county as the closet Bird Vet. So I ask nicely that if anyone feels that something isn't right or is wrong in a birds home to ask questions, so you better understand the situation before making comments that will only cause drama/emotions on a post! Thank You!
