I went outside this morning and took pictures of a zucchini stem with 3 flowers on it! I have never seen anything like this before. Unfortunately it was a male, so no triple zucchinis from it!
I heard a lot of blue jay screaming outside shortly after and went out to discover my cat had a baby blue jay. I would try to get it away and he kept going under the house with it. My husband finally got it away and the poor thing is still alive.
I really have my doubts that it will survive. I have it in a shoebox right now and it has just been laying quietly first panting and now breathing with its mouth closed. I would be very surprised if it actually survived this encounter. It is almost fledged out. It has full feathers on its wings and was probably just starting out and fell on the ground where the cat got it. I hate to see that happen but its hard to keep the cats in all the time.
I am going to the surgeon today and will post what he says later..
