Hi RaneBeau #15,655
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY! Hope u have a great day...EVERYDAY! I agree with u...I hope 17 is our best yr yet! Ur adoption day is a great day to choose as ur Hatchday! January is a great month for me! My Hatchday being on the 31st, but more importantly my adoption date is 1/15/97! What could possibly be better than the day & the anniversary of the day that u came to live with the family that u were destined to be with?! My wish is that every single birdie living in captivity have loving & caring parronts like we were blessed with! U & I were very fortunate to be loved in our 1st homes. Most birdies needing to be re-homed are not that fortunate! I was loved by my 1st family, but I was only with them for 4 short months. They had a 4 yr old son & the momma was expecting a baby very soon. They realized pretty quickly that a macaw was too much for them to handle. I was more bonded with the dad, & his top priority was finding me a good home, he didn't want me to to be banished to a cage to live out my life. He placed an ad in the newspaper for me. He had dozens of calls about me, but my mom was the first & only person he let come & visit me! My mom always knew that someday she would share her life with a macaw! She saw a bird show when she was 12 & knew right then that it was destiny! Mom never had a parrot before, but she did years & years of research. Finally, the day came that mom was actively looking for her macaw. She planned on getting one from an avian pet shop in Pittsburgh. When she was searching for the phone # in the newspaper, she came across my ad. Mom decided it would be better to get a bird that needed a good home. When she came to visit me, I immediately stepped up on her & that was it...we both instantly fell in love with each other! Mom brought me home that day, & I've been with her for 16 wonderful, happy years! We had a couple bumps in the road when I reached sexual maturity. Since mom wasn't fond of having broken fingers set & having her skin sewn back over the bones, mom hired an avian behaviorist. She had mom straightened out in 2 visits! U see, mom didn't realize what see perceived as danger & what I perceived as danger was completely different! She didn't realize that I was trying to rescue my mate from what I interpreted as danger & I was trying to get her to flee, my intentions were out of love, I wasn't actually trying to dismember her! That was about 12 yrs ago, & everything's been harmonious since! With a beak this large, mom always knew broken fingers & missing chunks of skin was a possibility, but she worked to find out the reason behind it, coz she would NEVER get rid of me! My mom, I think I'll keep her! After 16 yrs together, I have her trained just right! Have a great day sweetie!
