Violet is eating well and resting - December 25, 2011

Good morning and Merry Christmas. The report from the Horvaths is that Violet ate well last night and was given pain medication and antibiotics. She is resting well.

She was skinny but surprisingly not emaciated so she had been getting some nutrition out in the wild (most likely in the form of small mice she could swallow whole since she had so much trouble holding and tearing into prey as large as rats).

Her good foot is in pretty bad shape in all actuality. It does not have much mobility so it was surprising how well she was able to hold onto perches. She is able to balance on her own though as we've seen in the wild.

She is in a quiet, calm place so she can rest.

This post will likely get updated with more info and perhaps pics so stay tuned.
