Questions About Online Shop Baby Alive

David asks…

I have a baby Robin. Found it on Sunday. Is there somewhere online to buy worms and/or “robin food”?

I’m getting tired of digging worms and running to the bait shop. It would be cool if I could buy in bulk and pay with paypal or check or money order or something. Please help. The bird is doing really well. Found him on the sidewalk with five other baby birds, all but two were dead. The other one left alive was almost dead. The one I’ve got was in great shape, except for one of his legs which was swollen. The swelling has gone down and he is becoming more vocal and active. His eyes are starting to open. Unfortunately I am on a budget and he wants to eat every 20 to 60 minutes depending on the time of day. I want him to live, but I don’t want to spend a fortune on worms. HELP!

Donna answers:

Unfortunatly you need to get him to a wildlife rehabber in your area. The robin should be fed roughly ever hour, and kept warm on a heating pad. It is illegal to keep wildlife without a proper license, and without the proper training often birds seemingly raised well, will not survive in the wild because you are not meeting his nutritional and developmental needs. The bird also needs to be with other birds of its kind, to learn to fly, search for food, and sing their song. I know your doing a good deed, but in the long run it will do the bird more harm than good if it isnt raised properly.

In the meantime though cutting up worms is good, mealworms work great as long as you drown them first. They can also eat mushed up cat or dog food in small quantities for other nutrition. Blueberries chopped up into tiny pieces are good too. There is actually a special formula that the bird will need eventually, that most wildlife rehabbers know how to make.

Try a google search for wildlife rehabbers in your area, and send the bird their way. If you need any additional tips feel free to email me.

In response to the person below me, most rehabbers tell you to leave them in a bush because the mothers haven’t abandoned the babies. If you find a baby, and place in a near by safe place the mother will find it and continue to care for it. There are special circumstances where this isnt true, also, when young birds are learning to fly they often fall out of the nest and learn to fly from the ground up, about 80% of birds you THINK are orphaned, are not, they simply just need a boost back into a safe place. I’d also like to add that unless properly cared for, a bird may seem as if its being raised properly and healthy, but it will lack the skills it needs to survive in the wild, and they most often die. It is more complicated than you think.

Showing them how to find food can only be done by other birds, by increasing human contact the bird will become imprinted and that inhibits their survival in the wild.

Helen asks…

Is it crazy that I just posted an ad on C-List asking someone to make me a baby? Opinions please.?

I’m a 28 year old single white female. I have been single forever. Seriously forever. I have never had a man of the opposite sex tell me that he loves me. (besides family ofcourse)
Anyways, I live in this state that I moved to on an impulse to be closer to some friends I have and now I’ve been here living in my own apartment for going on 4 years. The family that I do have, is crazy. My mother doesn’t know whether or not I’m dead or alive. She never calls me. I don’t remember the last time I talked to her. She would rather be doing drugs or getting drunk than talk to me. My biological father died about 5 years ago but it didn’t really phase me because he was in prison my whole life. I have 3 younger siblings that are all still in their teens so they think they are too cool for me and I never hardly talk to them either. I try. I text them a lot and send messages on myspace and stuff.
Anyways, I have great people in my life here where I live now. Good friends and good co-workers. The only thing missing is a man.
Don’t give me some crap that I need to stop looking and just let things happen. I’ve tried that. That’s CRAP. I have tried EVERYTHING. (online dating, speed dating, dating events, coffee shops, bars, clubs, blind dates through friends) Men just only want me for sex. So I have tried playing hard to get and then they don’t like that. I can’t make anything work. Unless its a drunk night at the bar and meeting up after for a one night stand. I’m so sick of this. Every where I go, I’m always known as the single girl. I feel like such a loser. And every time I see a baby…I melt. I want one so bad!
I want a baby. I don’t care what. (would prefer a girl but whatever).

Donna answers:

Well, I think alot of women look at babies and just want one…If you really think that you are ready, then I suggest that you go through a sperm bank, so one day the man that helped you get pregnant doesnt come around wanting to take the baby or be in your life if you dont even know him….YOu dont know who will answer that add, a child molester, you never know,,,,then they will try to take the baby from you someday….Just save up some money and go to a sperm bank, at least you will know their medical history etc……good luck

Nancy asks…

Baby ball python, only wants live meals?

I recently purchased a 3 week old ball python, & the pet store gave me several frozen pinkies. My snake wont eat them, unless I open his mouth and close it over the mouse and I hate having to do that…

Im pretty sure he only wants live feed, but I cant find any stores in the area that sell them alive! There is a petco in the area, petsmart, and a bunch of small pet shops but I cant find what Im looking for!

Is there an online site that sells them live & ships? any stores you know of that I may find in the area? (omaha, ne)

anything I can do to get him to eat on his own?

help! =
of course i thaw them out, in a baggie of warm water…. making them about normal body temp.

Donna answers:

Must snakes like live prey…they like to hunt for there food… I have 23 snakes and they will not eat anythign dead…unless they killed it…i always give them live mice…i would say go to petco buy some mice and breed them that way you can get him live food…also try looking for a shop that seels reptiles and stuff…good luck

Michael asks…

Looking for advice after verbally abusive past?

I’m 17 years old and have had a verbally abusive past. My father was/is always putting me down, calling me names, cussing at me, making every little tiny decision for me, saying he doesn’t “give a [email protected]^^N about me, my siblings, or my mom”, saying I’m psychotic, withholding support (even with childhood-like things such as YMCA soccer and acting classes), among many other things.

On Saturday, he blew up at me out in public while we were shopping for a Mother’s Day gift. I had things I wanted to get her already in mind. Last year I shopped by myself with no help, but this year he woke me up and said that we should go. I assumed he just wanted to spend time with me, but when we got to the stores, any little thing I had in mind wasn’t good enough. He didn’t like this idea, or didn’t like that idea. I’d pick out flowers and he would put them down and get something else. When we were leaving the second store, I said quietly to him, because the cashiers were nearby, “This is turning into a husband-to-wife gift, rather than a Mother’s Day gift from me.” He started screaming and cussing at me right outside the store and threw the car keys about 40 feet down the sidewalk. He continued to insult me for about 45 minutes in the hot car (I live in Florida) with people watching. I told my mom later and she said that next time it happens I should just call 911. My dad hasn’t spoken to me or anyone in the family since, and he hiding around the house to avoid being spoken to.

My mom occasionally puts me down and/or treats me as less than my other siblings. The most recent event was I was nervous about having a endoscopy done at the hospital. I was getting a little upset about it (nobody had told me what to expect yet, or what would happen), and she basically just told me to get over my fear of it and stop being such a baby.

Well, anyway, my mom is making me get a job this summer (my first job), but because of the verbal abuse, I have no self-confidence, low self-esteem, and low self-worth. I’m very nervous and worried about not doing my job right, forgetting to do something, people being rude, etc. It’s becoming a paralyzing fear of getting a job. I’ve recently (in the past year or so) become very shy and nervous around people, so much that I don’t go out with friends often. Last Thursday was the first time in almost two years that I met up with friends. I don’t go to restaurants, sports events, fun things (movies, bowling, skating, etc.), friends houses, etc. because I’m so afraid of new situations. I occasionally even feel guilty for being alive. I have great difficulty making decisions (from big choices to small ones – even what to order at a restaurant with my family). I’ve tried talking to a counselor about my anxiety issues, but she wasn’t much help. Plus, I’m too nervous/shy to even talk to someone personally about any of this.

Does anyone have any tips, words of encouragement, websites I should look into for advice, online counselors, advice, etc? It would be greatly appreciated. Sorry that this is so long.
Nadine, I really appeciate your advice. But I can’t just talk to my dad nicely. He’s so incredibly rude/mean to me. Tonight, he said I didn’t know anything and that I was just “white-trash”. He slapped my face earlier today, after I responded to him pushing me into a chair. Anything I say to him will end up in an arguement, as he doesn’t really like me and thinks I’m good for nothing. I feel very stuck in my situation and like I will never get away.

Donna answers:

No need to be sorry tell them all to get fucked and go look at themselves in the fucken mirror because believe me their not perfect but hey I think you owe your dad an apology,I mean he wanted to spend time with you even though it was painfull you could’ve been polite.I mean you sound like a spoilt brat that whinges bout everything you know your dad and mum are doing everything for you and you need to take some responsibility for yourself try talking to your father about your concerns let him know that you are not confortable with the way he keeps talking to you,ask him why?.It might be that he’s really stressed out and he’s really upset with himself but takes it out on you,let him know if he wants to talk bout things that he can just talk to you if he likes and that he’s not a failure, and let him know if he keeps it up you feel like a failure too.Let your dad know he’s got your support,he doesn’t know how to get through to you,but if he’s going to keep on carrying on go live with your mum or report it because its no good you living in an environment like it.

Your dad needs to do a Anger management programme to vent his anger in the right direction or to deal with situations more calmly etc.You can go there with him if you like but remember if he doesn’t get any help you leave.Let him know that if he keeps it up that your leaving.Ring kids helpline,ring social services,ring police,ring councellor,psychologist,centrelink,lifeline,family anyone to get help remember you are doing the right thing by getting help.but if you love your dad you don’t want to hurt him anymore then what he is your dads sick and needs your help,make sure they know that and make sure he knows that you don’t want to hurt him,or tear apart your family.Ok thats all I can give you hope this has been helpfull otherwise you can always carryon the same back and see how that goes I reckon it might stop,because then your father see’s himself in you and will probably stop because he won’t you being like him.Abuse the fuck out of him,throw the keys down like he does,tell him he’s a no good so and so give him back what he gives you and then some,and don’t be afraid.Stand your ground and don’t back down.they can be disruptive so can you.
