I am her third owner, Her first owner was abusive, and when she would scream, the owner threw her up against a wall, and broke her wing, the second owner had a brain tumer, so poor Sugar was kept in a room with little attention, because he would get headaches from her screaming, and they fed her hamburger meat on a daily basis. I worked with a woman who knew I had birds, and she knew about Sugar, and when she showed me a picture of her, and told me the story of Sugars tragic life, I knew I could make a difference, I went to visit Sugar, and was appaled, She was in a cage way too small, and it was covered in feces 2 inches deep. I looked at my husband, and he handed me the money for her, and I took her home. We bought her a huge cage, and toys, which she never had. Today she has a clean bill of health, she wont ever be able to use er wing like a normal bird, but that doesn't slow Sugar down. She has a good life, and will never have to be afraid again, she is the most loving bird even after all of that abuse! I will be her last owner!.

  Hi Sugar,

You're so pretty and I'm so happy you have a Forever Home. My Mommy says there's a place in hell for people who abuse Animals and Humans for that matter. My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. Mommy is my 3rd owner also and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. I'm so happy cause I like it here. She also wants to know if I know that I'm a Cockatoo cause I'm sweet and very quiet. What does she mean by that? Want to be Friends? Please stop by and see me and my Flock sometime cause we love getting company. Here's a vote for you. Bye for now and hope to see you soon.

Come visit me, Parker, Silver, APACHE IS SO HAPPY SNOWFLAKE SAID YES ON 04/27/14, Oz & Cheyenne said YES to her Jedi 5/3/14.

  HI SUGAR!!
I finally got my travel stand that I won from the flock giveaway. I was so happy when my mom brought in the big box and when she said that it was for ME! Boy I got so excited! I am afraid of it right now but I'm sure I'll get used to it soon. I never had anything like this before so whats a bird to do? Be scared I guess. hee hee! Theres a picture of it on my page and when I get braver and get on it then my mom will take a picture and put it on here. Well I better get going for now. I'll talk to you soon. Have a great day! Love, Rocky♥ (*><~)

  Happy Story:
It's always good to hear a happy story. My first owner didn't want me. But then came along my mommy! Aren't you glad there are people like ours to care for us? Stay dry and try to keep away from all that bad weather down there.

Come visit me, Kiera.

  Hi Sugar!
We share the same name, but you are far braver than me. I went straight from the breeder to my new home, and have not had to go through stuff like you. My mum had tears in her eyes reading your story, and just like Buddy, I got a hug out of it too. You are safe now, and loved, and that's the important thing!

Come visit me, Fido.

  Hi Sugar
First of all...welcome to the channel! Your blog just made my mom cry....but I got a big hug out of it, so that's OK. My name is Buddy and I'm a Moluccan cockatoo. I too had a very tragic start in life. I'm in my 3rd home now and am so glad it will be my forever home. I've had a lot of obstacles to overcome and I still deal with issues, but I'm so happy to be where I am now. God bless you AND your mom. She is a very special person and you are now considered one lucky bird (as am I). Please come visit us sometime (I have a U-2 for a brother and a Meyer's for my other brother). Today I'm voting for YOU! Birdie hugs, Buddy

Come visit me, Clyde, Tiki, Buddy, r.i.p. 8/20/08 & Bobbi.

  Welcome Sugar
You are an amazing bird for all you have gone through. Anyone who treats babies with such disrespect doesn't deserve them! We are glad to see you have such a nice home :)

Come visit me, Sierra & Sam.

  I used to have a bad home too. A nice lady took me in and found my mom and dad to take me. I used to only eat cheap wild bird seed and my only toy was a broken bell. Mom got me a big new cage filled with toys. She's always making me and my brother good things to eat! Dad says we're spoiled. I have to go to the vet today. Mommy's kinda worried about my health from my bad diet and dirty cage. I'm so glad you have such nice parents to take care of you too! Here's a vote! ~Snuggles
