We just rescued him 8/30/09. He is a good boy and listens well. He is a good eater and has not bitten us. We are going very slow since he was cage bound his whole life. His owner is dying of cancer and told me that Plato has never had a shower and has not been held much.. Awards

Hi! My name is Plato

I am a Congo African Grey from Sahuarita, AZ.

30 years old   M

Congo African Grey

All I was fed was peanuts and sunflower seeds. I have only been given a few a day now.

In my cage for now. The door is open, and I will climb all around on the outside, but I feel safest inside.

Being petted. I am not used to being touched.

They are very gentle with me and have fed me all kinds of delicious food!

Hanging by my beak and moving my legs and feet up and down into the air..

Older is better..

I killed that bad mouse thast hurt him, but he played with it and it bit him. It will never be the same without him, but Xerxes and I try to cheer her up. Thanks for caring. I left you a vote.

  I am so happy that you found a great forever home. I am sad right now, as my Buddy Harley passed away yesterday. He was such a silly happy birdie. Mom will miss him so much. I voted for you. Welcome! Uzi

  Hello Plato!
Sorry that your original owner got sick, but it does sound like you are in a much better home now. I can't believe that you are not a biter after being left in your cage all of the time. Our Rocket birdie is a congo african gray, too; and he bites everyone except Mom. (He is a Mama's boy) LOL I am a rescue bird, too and my name is Susan. I am a female eclectus and I have been with my new family for almost 2 months now. Mom says I am adjusting well and my flockmates love me, too. I am glad to meet you. Fly on in for a visit any time. Here is a big vote for you!
Susan & the gang

Come visit me, SUSAN, sooo Sweet!, ROCKET....rocking the house!!, Zazu R.I.P. - Waiting at Rainbow Bridge <3, OOdles, The "finchey" bunch., PEDRO...the destroyer!! Thank U 4 BOD! & ~~BUDDY ~~Thank you for BOTD! :-).
