In the October firestorm of 2003 in Southern California I lost my house. We got out safely along with my albino parakeet Kisses. Petco gave us a generous donation to spend at their store which I loved going to. One day I was walking in to see what was new..
I'll let Josie take it from here...

Well I was hanging out in the bird room at Petco and this girl walked in smiling at all the birds and saying hi and hello, she got to mine and was happy to see when she pet me through the bars I was sweet and didn't bite!! She came back two or three more times and finally she came with her whole family. My mommy at the time was Judy, she took me out and I finally got to hug Jeanette and she hugged me right back! I was a little scared but I felt safe, so I went potty on the floor :)
I got my name Josie from Grandma, she helped when we couldn't think of one. It was after Joseph and His Coat of Many Colors because of my pretty wings!

Hi! My name is Josie

I am a Severe Macaw from Susanville, CA.

Baby girl, pretty girl, from Jeanette's friends, "that bird", "that attack bird", yep.. they love me!

13 years old   F

Severe Macaw

Noodles and whatever Jeanette is trying to eat!

If I am in my cage, then I hang out on the bars closest to the action, or my pretty pink perch. Outside, it is where people are, on Jeanette's shoulder.. floor, wherever I can get!

Things that move fast, tarps, balloons, birds in the sky... Something that I'm not familiar with.

*UPDATED* My owner and I have not seen each other since August 18th, 2007... She has been away at school, and I got to talk to her last night (Sept. 7) but I miss her and I know she worries about and misses me too much for words!**

As she has sat here under my supervision for me, I have come to realize how fun it is to say hello in different tones and when she doesn't talk back right away I will nip her! Hehe I just did it too much so she gave me a big hug and growled while she lightly nibbled my neck hehe!! I love giving her kisses and when she puts me on the ground I say up, as I am looking up at her and she reaches down so I can help her with whatever she is doing. Even if I find it boring and want to be put down right away again! If we are outside she will hug me and I feel safe. Now is a good example, I don't feel like sitting on her shoulder but I wanna be near there, so she is typing with one hand so I can perch on her other hand as it rests against her shoulder and I can lean against her head and make rumbly/purring noises to let her know she is doing a good job. I also enjoy grooming ger hair and many times she holds till so I can groom her eye lashes!! She grooms me back and helps me let new feathers come in.

I like to hang upside down and dance back and forth. I also enjoys muttering and I heard the funniest thing in the world. I also like to say Hello and when Jeanette don't respond fast enough I gives me a little nibble to remind her me is sitting here! (I reminded her as I do it right now). I also love to play on the floor if someone has a towel or something I runs into it and scream when you throw it on me, it is hilairous!!.

If it moves and has socks on, run for it until it screams, then laugh!!.

  Hi again
Sorry, I just haven't been around for a while. My mum told some of her co-workers how you got your name, and they thought it was awfully cool. Take care!

Come visit me, Fido.

  Hi from Chi-Chi
Wow - your name is perfect for you. I really like how much you put into your profile - it's fun to read about other birds with fabulous personalities (which it sounds like you have). I do the same with being put on the floor, but I can't say "up". I just climb on my mum's foot, and look up at her till she puts me back on her shoulder.
Take care!

Come visit me, Fido.
