Over the last few months Mon-chan’s left leg has become increasingly lame. She can barely use it at all now. She also seems tired and sleepy most of the time.
To make it easier for her to eat I added an extra tray filled with seeds next to the water this morning. That way she can eat directly from the perch.
This morning, all she’s done is just stand there in the same spot without moving about.
She’s getting old, but is still just 6.5 years old. That’s well within the lifespan of Java sparrows, but one year older than Hao was when he passed away.
Anyway, I’m just worried and depressed. She doesn’t seem to be in pain. But she also doesn’t seem to be particularly comfortable or relaxed.
