It's hard to believe that it's been nearly a year since I first met her, but one glance at her chart removes any doubt. Species: Anna's Hummingbird. Patient Number: 11-2241. Date of Admission: 08/15/2011. Yes, 11 months ago is really when she came into our care. It was undoubtedly the worst day of her young life because it began with an outdoor housecat using her as a toy. Fortunately, the cat did not take her life, but he did take some of her dignity by pulling out every one of her tail feathers.

Kevin, I remember this little bird's story, and I'm very, very happy to know that her tail feathers grew back and she was released. Thanks to you and so many others, she stayed healthy through what must have been a very difficult time.
