We got Zena after our beloved Bratley (a Pacific parrotlet) died. When we lost Bratley, we knew we would always have to have a parrotlet in the house. Now we have four..

Hi! My name is Zena (Zena Warrior Princess)

I am a Parrotlet from Morris, CT.

9 years old   F

Parrotlet

Give me a fig and you have my heart.

Play pen.

Toes and bells.

Zena loves my wife's hair. She snuggles on her shoulder with my wife's hair over her head every night.

Zena was hand-raised and brought every morning to a machine shop where signs were being made. When she makes her funny chattering noise, we know she is "making signs"..

Get the bell !!

  Zena on meds again
Poor Zena, Hope this round of meds will cure her upper respiratory tract infection. She does seem to be responding better to this drug than the last.

  Meds
Somehow Zena got an upper respiratory tract infection. We noticed her tail bobbing and she was making clicking noises when she breathed (thought the clicking noises only occurred when she was excited). The course of meds she got cured the problem and we were very happy that the meds took care of the infection. But now she is being treated for avian gastric yeast (AGY). It means an entire month of meds twice a day. Fortunately, she's pretty good about taking her meds.

  The Grand Dame of the Flock
Our Grand Dame of the flock is hanging in there. Definitely showing her age though. She got pretty stressed out from her last beak trim (yesterday) and I woke up early because I was so worried about her. But she has recovered and dived into her breakfast.

  New vet for Zena
We found a local vet who does beak trims. It saves us a three hour round trip to the avian vet and the local vet does a better job on her beak. The vet is only 5 minutes from our house! Between the trimming the vet is doing and the frequency of visits Zena's cross bite is totally corrected. She looks fantastic and it has been helping her eat better.

  Hi Zena sweetie
I want to thank everybirdy for their prayers! Mila's family is truly grateful! We all know the power of prayer is a powerful thing...but we are all in shock over little Mila's progress. She had brain surgery 7:30am on Friday. When the surgeons went in, they discovered that some of what was tumor, was actually scar tissue from her surgery lastyyear, & sort of made a pocket that the larger tumor was sitting in. They were able to ENTIRELY remove BOTH tumors! On Saturday, she was moved to a regular room & they had her up walking! On Sunday, less than 48hrs upon completion of her surgery, MILA WAS SENT HOME...TRULY A MIRACLE!!!
Mila's family would still appreciate ur prayers. Since this cancer came back so quickly & aggressively, doctors are going to treat it very aggressively with chemo & radiation. Mila is doing wonderfullly! She has to take it easy, but she's up & playing with all of her princess toys! She'll walk up to u, give u a hug & tell u that she has a boo-boo & that herhhead hurts. It's truly amazing & miraculous! All things are possible with God!
Love from

  Getting there with Zena's beak
Now that we have a local vet treating Zena's beak, her bite is getting better. We have been going more frequently. Previously it was a two and a half hour chunk out of our day to get Zena to the avian vet (two hours round trip travelling time and a half hour to 15 minutes at the vet). Now it is a 15 minute trip and appointment. Quite a difference! And the vet has been doing a really splendid job trimming. We are all very happy about it.

  Hi Zena sweetie
Hi everybirdy!
Tia here, sorry I haven't been around in quite awhile, sooooo much has been going on, I'll let u know all about it. Mom FINALLY unpacked the box that contained her notebook that has everybirdy's page #s! Today, mom & I ask for ur prayers.

A good friend of mom's has an adorable 4 yr old daughter, Mila. The past 14 months have been a horrific nightmare for Dawn, Mila's mother. Mila was born with Li Fraumeni Syndrome, which is an EXTREMELY RARE genetic condition. Certain receptors shut off & leaves that person very prone to cancer. Last summer, Mila began acting strangely...bobbing her head around, running into things, suddenly falling down & grabbing her head & screaming. Her pediatrician immediately ordered a brain MRI. Dawnh& Neil were devastated to learn that their precious 3 yr old daughter had Choroid Plexus Carcinoma, an EXTREMELY RARE & very aggressive brain cancer. Mila had brain surgery 3 days later. It was touch & go for the 1st week, they had to restart her heart 4 times. Miraculously, she made it thru, although she spent 3 months in intensive care. She was released fromthe hospital 2 days before Christmas...a true Christmas miracle...Mila had ABSOLUTELY NO mental deficit! Since then, she must have an MRI every 3 months. All of them had been perfectly spotless - until her MRI last week.

Mila now has 2 aggressive tumors - the larger one, the size of a small navel orange, & the other is a bit larger than a golfball. The larger one is in the same spot as the one removed last year, but it is tangled in her nerves & has been deemed inoperable. She will once again have to endure chemotherapy & this time start radiation. The smaller tumor will be removed. I just spoke to her mom Dawn, they will be leaving for Children's Hosp in Pittsburgh in a couple hrs. Mila will be having brain surgery tomorrow morning at 7:30am. to remove the smaller tumor & hopefully be able to remove part at least part of the larger one. We are all heartbroken that this precious little girl hasto go thru tthis again. I hope all our dear friends will say a special prayer for Mila, that God in Heaven will once again restore her health! Thank you my dear friends & God Bless u all.
Love
TiaMaria & mom Sandy

  beak trim
We found a local vet that can do Zena's beak trim. Saves us 2 1/2 hours out of our day to go and take her to the nearest avian vet.

Zena is all done with her meds and there is no return of the avian gastric yeast. Her beak was trimmed but the alignment can't be corrected so we will just have to keep up with the trimming.

  Yet another beak trim
Seems we have to go every two weeks now. We're trying to keep her lower beak shaped so she doesn't develop a cross bite, but it has been tough. Plus she gets meds twice a day. Poor Zena.

  beak trim
Zena's lower beak rapidly developed a cross bite. Don't know how it got away from us so quickly. She is fine now after a beak trim at the avian vet. She has always been prone to beak problems, but this was pretty severe.
We also put her on the Senior formulated nutriberries.

  Zena on antibiotics
Seemed as though Zena had a couple of scabs: one under her right eye and then another along her beak where it meets her cheek. We think she must have had a run-in with her cage at some point, though we don't know when. So she needs the drops directly on the sores twice a day. Not fun for either of us! She should be all set by the week-end though with her course of treatment.
