Blue and Gold Macaw
I have always loved birds of all kinds and sizes. Parrots in particular. Recently I joined a parrot rescue in my area and got my first foster boy. But this is not about him. But I will submit another story about him.
I recived a call from a friend at a vet clinic. A woman was looking for a baby sitter for her B&G. I was asked if I would. "Of course!" I said.
The lady called me the next day and my husband and I went out to meet 'Joey'. We were told that she was starting to show aggressive behaviour to her owner.
She was beautiful! A few feathers plucked on her legs and tummy, but I only saw her. I sat down at the table and the lady put Joey on the table top and Joey instantly walked over closer to me. For a few seconds she looked at me and said hello a few times. Soon she was on my knee and getting even closer. In under 2 minutes she was tucked up under my arm on my lap and getting kisses and pets.
I find out after that she's not very friendly at all to strangers. Two days later, we are visiting for a second time and all of a sudden we are bringing her home.
I find out that it's not just a babysitting gig. To my surprise and happiness, we just may be able to keep her, but it's not for sure yet.
Joey is with me almost constantly. She eats with me, is on the computer with me, cooks with me (she insists, really lol) She even bathes with me!
She has been with me only a couple of weeks, but it's like she's been with me her whole 20 years!
I love her to bits, and am hoping and praying I can be her mommie for life!
