WARNING!!! To all the BBFF's we love so much!!!
We are sorry this is just a generic message to all of you, but we thought this information was just too important to not let all of you know. PLEASE tell your parronts that the silicone cookware has bad chemicals for us birdies too!! Mommy got the following message in her e-mail the other day: Saturday Jan 10, 2009, I put an oven liner that claimed it was made from silicone and was completely safe for animals. I followed the directions, started the oven, popped in a pizza, within five minutes of taking the pizza out, my Parrotlet fell to the bottom of the cage and died in my hand. I had no clue what happened to him, I tried to clear his little air way, I thought maybe he choked on something. No luck bringing him back. I have only had him for 5.5 months, but you sure can get attached quickly. I also have two female caiques, Tango and Daisy. These birds are my children just as for many of you. I wanted to show the the girls that little Tucker had passed, so they wouldn't call for him. I took out Tango showed her that Tucker was gone, she seemed to understand. When I went to take Daisy(my princess) I have had her for 3 years, when I looked at her she was sitting low on her heated perch, almost squating. I had her step up, but she had a hard time doing so. Once I had her I could tell something was very wrong, she was wobbly and out of it. It hit me like a ton of bricks!!!! I had read about this.That darn oven must have contained some type of teflon or chemical. My roomate and I now in a total panic, rushed the girls outside. Daisy was fading fast.I was crying and begging her to stay awake. My neighbors came out to help, they called the local avian vet and had to leave a message. The internet said oxygen.Where am I going to get oxygen at 6pm on a Saturday night??? I was a mess!!! I called the local Fire Dept. I asked them to please, please bring oxygen to save my baby. I must have sounded like a lunatic or something. They came with in fifteen minutes, we put the mask over Daisy's mouth and her eyes became more alert. I was hopeful. He suggested putting her in a small box and letting the oxygen tube go directly into the box. We got a small box, she seemed to be standing now.Very hopeful now! The EMT called the University of Tennessee avian vet. The avian vet said it sounds like telfon exposure. He told the EMT the outcome was not good, but the EMT did not tell us that right away, he could see what a mess we already were. The vet said to take the oxygen off for ten minutes and if she stayed alert that we could bring her to the hospital, but if she faded that meant she had already suffered a lethal dose and there would be nothing he could do for her. Daisy Mae died at 10:15pm, I told her it was bed time and she went to sleep. Tango the surviver was trying to feed Daisy the last hour of her life. It broke my heart. Please be sure to pass this along to all of your birdie friends!! We love you!!
