|Hi Paulie; Sky here. I'm running for Dec's BOTM
Hi Every-Birdie, it's SKY, here to conclude our talk about Angel, and life here with Momma Deb.
Angel became increasingly more aggressive, often growling, and lunging from hiding under the bed or dresser, where she took refuge. The owner was terrified of Angel making the matter worse. Angel began to guard the bedroom door refusing to allow her owner in, fearing the broom. Many days Angel remained unfed, and watered.
The owner contacted our Momma Deb and related the problem she was having with Angel. Momma went to visit and see for herself the cause of the aggressiveness. Unable to bear leaving her behind, she was removed the home, and came here. She is now Momma's girl, sweet, trusting and highly interactive.
These are only three of the many birds living with me who have suffered abuse and or neglect. Momma Deb has bred birds for 35 years, and is very adamant that would be owners "DO THEIR RESEARCH FIRST." All birds that leave here are on a no-questions asked return agreement at any point in their lives.
Locally I have become sort of a celebrate. I visit Pet Stores, local festivals and other gatherings where I speak to people about birds, about the need for researching before one buys, and how to care for and handle a bird correctly. Although we have discouraged some from obtaining a pet bird, I feel happy that through education, they realized before they bought, that a bird was not for them.
Every opportunity is taken to help bring public awareness to the need for community support of animal rescues, and specifically birds. Casey, my frother and I do all we can to teach humans the right way to communicate with us. Little by little we are seeing the positive results. One day I pray there shall no longer be a need for rescues and sanctuaries BUT until that day comes, my life's focus will be EDUCATION!
Tomorrow we are visiting with one of our very own B.C. birdies and her Mom in a "SPOTLIGHT on CARING."
with all my heart filled with love
