We bought our first house together today. We are sat in the backyard now with a bottle of champagne grinning like schoolkids :)

And invitations. Owning your own home is wonderful, even if you do spend every spare minute on decorating and maintenance.

I picked a female blackbird off the road today , I thought it was dead but I could see its head duck as cars passed over it , not a mark on it. I hoped it was stunned , I could feel it's heartbeat.

I knew it was close to death so I held it in my hands. I didn't want it to die alone on the road. It's head slowly flopped to one side and it was gone.

Silly , but I just couldn't leave it there.

Good for you. Roadkill is the most depressing thing I can think of, and here in Texas we are surrounded by it. I always stop and check wherever it isn't life threatening for me to do so, and move animals to a bin or the side of the road so that other animals don't die trying to get to the carcass and really, just so that the animals have some dignity. Watching a squirrel getting smeared up and down the road with nobody stopping is fucking awful.

And good for you for checking. We have a fantastic wildlife rescue centre here, and they take anything, and I mean ANYTHING that you find. Some of the things I've taken:

A squirrel that I saw get knocked over when I was out running. I brought it home as it was dying and it was 100 degrees outside. I put it in a cool box and a couple of hours later, it was still alive. The fucker had blood coming from its arse and ears. But it was alive. The rescue centre rehabilitated it for nine months and set it free in a garden at one of their volunteer's houses where it went on to live a happy life.

A tiny possum baby that had been ejected from it's dead mother's pouch in front of our house. All the other babies were dead except for this one tiny one, the size of my little finger. It was wriggling in the road. It's a miracle it didn't get run over. The rehab centre took it in and it went on to live a happy life.

A dead possum with all its babies still attached to its nipples. Given that they are nocturnal and we found it in a rainy road at 10am, people must have been driving round it and ignoring it for hours. It had several live babies still suckling. We took mum and babies still attached to the rehab centre. Guess what - they all went on to live a happy life.

The most recent story was just a couple of weeks ago. We were out househunting and drove past something moving in the road. I got out to find a rat with its head in a trap. Nearby, a guy was sat in his garage watching me. I felt certain that he had thrown it out of his garage. It was squealing and trying to get out. We keep a box with blankets in the car for situations just like this. I put it in the box and we took it to the woods to see if it was well enough to release. I unclamped the trap and the rat, with one eye half lolling out and crushed teeth ran up my arm towards my face and made a leap for freedom, but landed on the ground and ran around in a circle squealing. We knew it wouldn't last in the wild so we took it to the rehab centre. I was in touch with them last week and yes - guess what - it's got a wonky neck, but it's sat happily in a cage eating tons of snacks and generally thinking itself lucky.

Some of our trips out of town are heartbreaking - deer almost broken in half, armadillos, raccoons, possums, cats, skunks, and even dogs (lots of dogs actually - one ran out into the motorway one christmas and I know the car behind us probably hit it). It completely warms my heart to know that there are people just cheerfully fixing wounded wildlife and asking for no money in return. God knows by the time I leave Texas I will have delivered them an arkful.
