Rescued from the cat. Audra always wanted a tiny bird to call her own. While this little thing didn't make it through the night, the last few hours of its life, it was well loved. Audra made it a respectful coffin and they had a little ceremony for it. I found Zippy locked in an animal cage in the barn. He was in 'jail'. By evening, he was forgiven. All a day in the life.
