Introduction post! 

Introduction post as promised because the last one got lost in my toots. 🥴

So, hey, *shyly waiving hand* my name is Mélissa, I'm 23, soon-to-be 24 and I live in France in the city called Rouen to be more precise.
I speak fluent English, and medium Japanese, Korean, Russian and Spanish.
I'm Algerian from my father and Spanish-Gypsy from my mother.

I suffer from severe depression, chronique fatigue, anxiety, I have ADHD and self-diagnosed autistic.

Making it official :

This is the thread where I'll be posting every pigeon species I know of.

Get ready! 🥺🐦

Just a reminder that your local feral pigeons flocks, and birds in general, depend on human activity to have food.

Mostly in cities.

Please, leave them some seeds, cereals, grains and vegetables when you go out.

And let me introduce you Pipi, aka Thierry, Thithi, kiki, the rock pigeon I rescued at the end of September who I live very deeply and with whom I built a strong bond. ❤️

Pigeons are the best. 🕊️❤️

e-beg, donation post

Remember the 2 babies I brought to a sanctuary?

Here they are! They've grown so much! Germaine and Jean-Pierre are no more sick and are thriving so well at the sanctuary in their aviary.

I'm so happy for them! ❤️

TW | Mention of death 

Baby Gertrude died during last night. Her sutrggling to breath woke me up and all I could do was being there for her in her last moment... 😢

She's been burried with Jade.

I wish more people would talk about how captioning and transcription tools are not accessible to screen readers. Blind people want to make our audio and video accessible too. I'm just so tired, y'all. Can't even caption videos! 😠. 😫.

hey fedi i need a new place to sell my time to survive under capitalism

i have a quite diverse skillset ranging from hardware design to electronics to software, basically: if it's tech, chances are i have some useful knowledge already

i want something remote and with flexible working hours if at all possible

:boost_ok:

Our local library does 3-D printing as a service. You email them files or URLs, they vet it, you pay, they print, you pick it up. Works as advertised, very low effort, no skill requirement if you use someone else's existing design. Highly recommend.

I know of multiple libraries that do 3-D printing, maybe yours does too!

I realize I haven't talked about Bernard and Bianca here. 🥴
So here goes (again, maybe, idk?), a lady who caught Lyme disease also caught the bird's disease because of her immune system weakened by Lyme. (it's a disease caught because of feathers dust) and she was to find a forever home to both of them. She rescued them at 5 days old so they basically never knew outside.
I hesitated at first because I was already full of pidges at home but I ended up taking them. 🥺

Gertrude loooooooooves cuddling too. Precious baby. 😭

Gertrude currently look at me typing for the Masto family. 🥴

Kevin is still here and Bernard and Bianca are news, but I've talked about them and their story before.

Regis has figured how to escape and we still don't know how she did it.
Thierry, my very first rescue still hasn't come back and I think about him everyday. 😭

Show thread

A little update, I have 3 pigeons left at home.
4 with baby Gertrude but she most likely will be released in a rehab when big enough and health recovered!

When thinking about it, almost 15 pigeons crossed my path within a year. 🥺

I haven't been able to look the other way since then.

Baby Gertrude is once again another proof that pigeons will NEVER be able to thrive alone outside our cities.

Show thread

Let me present you baby Gertrude! 😊

I gave them a little space on my bed to sleep with me and to get warmer. ❤️

TW | Mention of puke/underweight 

Baby has tricho so I'll have to call my vet tomorrow for the proper med. I have it but it's been opened for too long for it to be efficient. 😭
Baby also is extremely underweight and therefore very very weak.
They puked everything I fed them yesterday and I figured it might be because I gave too much at once so today I fed them 3ml every 2/3h and they actually kept it!

Poops also get better! There's hope! 🤞🏼

“Freedom from” is colonial mentality, the ideology of externalizing costs. “Freedom to” is modernity at its finest, the socialist promise.
