Angel was stolen from a Pet shop as a baby, and rescued a year later all plucked and malnutrioned. he was returned to the pet shop and was then sold to a family where a child teased him non stop, and then he was returned to the pet shop again. To cut their losses, the pet shop was going to get rid of him, and he was then rescued by a woman who contacted a veterinarian I know to find him a home, and he was offered to me. I took him sight unseen, I knew he was meant to be mine because I heard he needed a home a few months before but could not take him due to my 20 yr old conure who was so attached to me. By coincidence Angel was offered to me 3 weeks after my conure passed away. His band number is my friend that passed away's birthday, so I believe he is a gift from heaven.. Awards

Hi! My name is ANGEL

I am an African Grey from STATEN ISLAND, NY.

Fuzzy Wuzzy, Fuzz Butt, Pretty grey face, Mommys sweet baby boy

12 years old   M

African Grey

I have a pepperidge farm goldfish addiction, and am currently in a 12 step program, and I only have one or 2 a day after the salt is rubbed off, I also love grapes, red are my favorite, and fruit Zupreem. I also love to chew birdie bagels

I love to hang out in the kitchen on my playstand, because that is where I get my treats and Mom reads me my books. I have over 50 vintage childrens books, and I love to hear a story or two while I am snacking.

I dont like my Mom to wear long sleeves while she is rubbing my beak and scratching my neck because it brushes against my wings and i dont like it

I love that my Mom loves me unconditionally- , and makes me feel safe and loved. She buys me toys and treats, makes me scrambled eggs on the weekend, and spends a lot of time with me, reading my favorite stories to me, petting my head, rubbing my beak, and I know I am in my forever home. I can now stop plucking like I used to when I was unhappy, and I have alot of beautiful new feathers. My mom sings to me and is teaching me how to sing Opera (I think she could use a few lessons herself, but I dont want to hurt her feelings so I pretend she is good) She kisses me when I wake up in the morning, and tells me how much she loves me,and rubs my beak while we watch TV together until its time to go to sleep. I wouldnt trade this Mom in for anything, she is my forever Mom, and i love her more than anything in the world.

I think my Moms name is Peek a Boo, when she is not in sight I start calling her "Peeeeek a Booooo" and I whistle at her too. Sometimes I meow like a cat, and I'm learning how to say Yabba Dabba Do..

Beauty is skin deep, and dont judge a book by its cover. Some of the most wonderful birds I know are plucked, rescues or special needs, they love unconditionally- , and are the most special birds..

  Tweety needs your votes for her poem. Her foot had to be amputated Feb. 26th due to the main blood supply being cut in her leg. We had to separate her from her cage mate. I wanted to get her a big cage to move (fly around) in and after paying 258.00 for her leg to become amputated we could not afford to buy her the cage of her dreams. We notice that she flies a little to get around her cage and can defiantly use a bigger one. Thank you; please visit her web site at

Come visit me, Tweety, Frosty and Ringo.

  Hello Angel, you cutie!
Simu here, Wow, i don't know what to say....what a heartbreaking story and a great happy-ending. I'm sooo happy for you that you've found that GREAT, CARING mom & your forever home! Your mom is reading stories to you? Hey, you're lucky mom don't do that. Know about that "opera-deal" pretty good myself. Mom got no idea how bad she sounds, and i would'nt mind telling her...there is only one problem, i don't know the right words. Not yet hehehe. Come fly by and see me sometimes, that would make my day. See you, SIMU & his gang.

Come visit me, Simu & Flock & BELLA - Panama Amazon.

  Angel found Heaven
Angel, I vote for you! My name is Cuddles. I knew your mom very well! And if you think, that you look disheveled, you should have seen me? Our mom, is special! She's not the runway type, tries to impress, or get attention. Will not matter, how bad you are beat down, or how you look, She's the real deal! You are the best African grey ever, and the luckiest bird alive to be in the home that you are in. I know? I reside as a testamonial of love, upon her right leg. And with respect, and from birdy heaven. I vote for the real Angel!

Paul, Staten Island, NY.
