Lucky  Babe

This little guy was learning to fly when my daughter's cat found it. The cat literally had him in her mouth to where all you could see was his tail feathers. I grabbed the cat and was able to get him away from her. To my surprise he was not dead but badly shaken. After some tender loving care I was able to reunite him with his anxious mother.
