The thing is that you know it's touch and go but, the heart being as it is, one ALWAYS has the hope that 'this time' they are going to make it but the greatest majority of them don't... and even the ones that do, have problems that will, eventually, kill them before their time.

I meant to ask you, there was no home inspection for the touracos? I mean, how do you do an adoption to so far away?


That pair of Turacos did not go to a home. Some sort of program at the Houston Zoo. I don't know much about it, but our director researched it for quite a long time. She's pretty tough, so I'm confident that it will be good for the birds. I've learned to trust her judgement and instincts on things.

Hmmm, I don't know... I hate zoos. Everything you see and read about them sounds wonderful but that's because people don't find out what goes on behind the scenes...
