You may have been wondering why you haven’t heard from Kakaduu for such a long time, and for a good reason: Kakaduu has been seriously unwell recently and has had to take a break from their blog as well as their creative work.
Already some months ago Säuks discovered he was losing feathers and getting painful eczema under his wings, which made him feel so miserable that he could only shiver. Siuks-Piuks noticed he was losing feathers as well, he was also sneezing more often than usual and feared he might have caught a bad cold. Kakaduu’s health kept getting worse despite eating lots of vitamins and taking healthy salt baths, and eventually there seemed no choice but to go to see a doctor.
So last Wednesday Kakaduu went to the bus stop and took the bus to the avian vet in Charlottenburg.
When Kakaduu arrived at the vet there were lots of other birds already queuing there, so Kakaduu had to wait for quite a long time till they were finally called in.
The vet was a very nice lady, but unfortunately she didn’t speak any bird language, so Kakaduu had difficulties explaining what was wrong with them, albeit they had their gallerists with them as interpreters.
The vet examined Kakaduu thoroughly and even sent their feathers to the lab for tests.
The vet also took an x-ray of Kakaduu to find out what was wrong.
The vet concluded that Kakaduu has a fungal infection and prescribed them medicine that has to be taken every day for two weeks. She also injected Kakaduu with antibiotics. Although the injection was very unpleasant and scary, the kind vet massaged Kakaduu’s chest afterwards and the pain went away quickly.
Kakaduu was quite exhausted from the visit to the vet, but they are now recovering and Säuks’s wings are already feeling much better thanks to the antibiotics and the medicine they are taking every day. Kakaduu are already feeling well enough to gradually continue their creative work, so they have started on some willow branch miniatures.
As the influence of birds over people is clearly extremely small, almost nonexistent, it is Kakaduu’s main need and mission to increase it as much and in whatever ways they can, while they are living and working among humans. That’s why Kakaduu have been hypnotising us for years already, so that we, too, would serve their mission - it’s not our fault that we have turned into half-animals already, acting as their gallerists-curators Zebra and Tiger, bringing their works, messages, and life story to people - Kakaduu is very skilful in hypnotising, especially Säuks, he talks directly to our reptilian brain.
