Guys my cockatiel is in serious trouble. You see, I got a severely abused cockatiel from a shelter 3 days ago. All his flight wings are clipped so short he can only glide.(can't fly up) His nostrils seems to be leaking fluid and swollen. His poop is yellow and green. He is ALWAYS fluffed up and never moves. I left him in a snuggie hanger before i went to work..when i came back he was in the same spot with his eyes closed. Every single time i try to touch him(pet, pickup, rub head), he immediately pretends he's dead or sleeping. I know he's faking it because when I turn him upside down he opens his eyes and nibbles on my finger. I should also note he doesn't sing, chirp, eat much, move.., basically do anything besides sit with his eyes closed 24/7. If I leave the cage open he makes no effort to try and leave. When i place him on the ground he walks for maybe 4 seconds then stops, and pretends he's sleeping. The first day I got him he seemed fine. He'd hiss at me if I put my fingers too close, or atleast try to move away but now it's like he doesn't give a fuck about anything. Is it too late to try and help this poor guy?
Is he worth paying to see a vet for? Even a zombie has more life than this bird.

anyone got any experience with paprika plants?
we bought this guy somwhere in the summer, as a grown plant (no fruits yet), and we kept it outside in the sun during the summer.
we didn't prune it or anything (had some more important stuff on the mind at the time), and now we have a plant thats not doing very well, which is prolly because of to much fruits (which also prolly makes the fruits very very small), and the incoming winter (we left it outside).
anyone got any tips? i've hear you got to cut of the first fruits on the side-stems, and let the plant focus on the main-stem.

/an/, this is my cat.
He's diabetic and old (around 13-14), I have to feed him twice a day and give him his insulin shot twice a day. I went to go feed him (he has to eat at least a half hour before, and I need to make sure he actually does so he doesn't go into shock) and today he didn't come for his food (he's NEVER done this before) and so I picked him up, put him in the kitchen and he lays down (he never does this either). I popped open his wet food of which he goes ape-shit for, put it infront of him and he just sniffs it casually, gives it a lick and then gets up and goes to the door wanting to be let out. I have to feed him separate from my other cat because she's a fat little piggie who eats EVERYTHING. I think he's dying, he'll lay down and kind of breath laboredly. There's a 24 hour vet in the area, but I have no idea how much a visit will cost and I've got little to no money right now with $100 in reserve for emergencies. What should I do?
TL:DR - Cat might be dying, what do I do?
