My name is Amanda, I am eighteen. I rarely post, and I don't have a "type" when I post. Sometimes it's bones, pretty animals, Taking Back Sunday things, etc. Sometimes text posts.

So.... Yeah. Not really worth following, honestly :)

I noticed a little ringneck dove outside by my dad’s pond and it was out there in the rain for HOURS. When it finally stopped raining I went outside to see if I could get some pictures of it and he didn’t fly away. It’s eyes were open and when I waved in it’s face it ignored me. It didn’t care if I petted it. It didn’t even struggle when I put it in a box with a towel and dried it off. It spent most of it’s time sleeping (it was night time) and it ignored the food and water I put with it. Occasionally it would shake it’s head or move postitions, but rarely. Just now I needed to fix the towel in the box and lifted him. He wasn’t happy, but didn’t vocalize or nip at me. When I put it down it fell face forward with it’s butt in the air. It’s struggled but I had to help get him back on his feet. If he makes it to tomorrow I’m going to see if he wants to go back outside and if he doesn’t I guess I will keep him.

What is wrong with him? :( And do you think he is wild or someones pet (he doesn’t have a tag)?

It just passed away unfortunately. Rest in Peace.
