Full story is here:
Art is SF ACC king pij in hospital on my kitchen counter. Actually, he's at the vet right now because even with the spa treatment and supportive care that my kitchen-counter pij get, he was getting worse rather than better and that is a very bad sign. He's a tall, very thin pigeon named Arthur by shelter volunteers and called Art by me (though I've been very tempted to rename him Slim or Tex or High Pockets or something) but Art he is. His white count is normal (9200), he's only mildly anemic (40% packed red blood cell count, should be 44%) but he's very thin at 390 grams when he should weigh at least 600 and possibly as much as 750. And he's not gaining weight despite every opportunity to do so. His diagnosis and long-term outcome are still TBD. We need donations to pay for his vet care. Times are tough, I know. Even a donation of $10 or $15 makes a difference because, when added together, they add up. Please click here to help Art.
