My Mom rescued me. She must really love me because she gave all the money she had to save me from my bad situation. My last owner was not feeding me! My Momma took me straight to a nice lady who started hand feeding me. Her name is Deb and I am staying at her house until I gain some weight back. Deb thinks I had a stroke, my head weaves around and I stumble when I walk, but I'm still cute and when my Momma came to visit I told her one word- LOVE! I have not said anything else yet, but I think I will when I get to go home with my Momma.. Awards

Hi! My name is Merlin

I am an African Grey from St. Paul, MN.

Not yet! I was just adopted:)

16 years old   M

African Grey

I love my Momma so much because she rescued me from a very bad man! When she came to see me I looked her in the eye and I know she "heard" me because I was willing her to Get ME Out of There!!!! And she did! Please Pray super hard for me to make a full recovery! Thanks! :)


She was not quite what you would call refined. She was not quite what you would call unrefined.
She was the kind of person that keeps a parrot.
