Adding another "TOO"
by Jo Ann
( Ontario, Canada)
A quick background on my situation.
I presently have an umbrella cockatoo "Angel". She (or possibly he) not sure of gender,
is 8 years old. I have had her since she was 3 months.
I have spent the majority of my time at home, but due to recent changes I am now working pretty much full time.
I feel so guilty and so bad for her as she is now locked up for 8 hours a day.
I do have several other pets (3 dogs, 2 cats, and a cockatiel).
She is very upset when I do get home and screams and clucks and goes crazy. I do spend time with her, but it never seems to satisfy her.
My question is: Would she be better off with another cockatoo as a playmate? I was seriously thinking about rescuing one , but I don't know if it would be better or worse.
And if I did, is it a bad idea to put them in a cage together?
