A week after Ilene went missing
Catherine had been attacked and was left with a gaping wound, missing a portion of the master muscle that runs down the back of her neck. Most likely a predator attack! her sister had gone missing the week before.
Her human took great care of her to heal her wounds and prevent infection. She really didn't think she would make it, but Catherine did. She's obviously a little fighter. Not wanting to risk their lives by putting them back outside into their pen. She made the desicion to re-home the 2 girls, and contacted us. Of course, we agreed to take in these 2 precious little ones.
Her wound is very large and slowly healing. She may never grow feathers in that area again, but it could have been worse... a lot worse. Catherine and Lizzy are bonded and stick closely together.
We were told that Catherine was always the dominate one, and she may have been trying to protect her sister Lizzy. Lizzy was totally unharmed.
