Cockatoo from Rochester, MN

I used to live in a biology classroom in a high school with my mom, Jan, but she started sneezing every time she came near me! Because of this, she hardly played with me at all! One day one of her students asked her where she got me because her parents were buying her a Cockatoo for a graduation present. I had known this person for a LONG time. She was the only one not afraid of me! Jan finally asked her if she wanted to take ME home! I was sad to leave, but I love my new house and Mom plays with me all the time and she doesn't sneeze at all!. Awards

Hi! My name is Kai

I am a Cockatoo from Rochester, MN.

Kai baby, Kaibi, RAHH! Biter bird, Boog (short for booger)

14 years old   F


I love cashews, peanuts, cashews, popcorn, cashews, seed balls, cashews, whatever Mom is eating-especial- ly if she doesn't want to share...did I mention that I love cashews?

I like the top of my cage, the top of Rat's cage, and Mom's shoulder. ..unless Grandpa is around! Then I want HIM!

When I yell "Come here!" over and over and Mom just says "I don't want to! You come HERE!" Why is she so lazy? If she wanted me to come there, why did she clip my wings?!

She knows exactly where to scratch me (though sometimes she needs a little help so I put my wings up or hold her hand where she's supposed to scratch) and she knows just the right things to feed me! She also knows when I'm in a bad mood and knows just what to do to make me feel better (cashews and a trip to the retirement home usually does the trick). My new Mom is so great she even lets me use her toothbrush! (Sometimes I have to fight with her a little for it, though)

I like to let myself out of my cage (breaking padlocks, usually) and let rat, the gerbil, out of her cage so I can chase her! I also love to pretend to be afraid of things so Mom will cuddle me and give me more treats. I also LOVE using Mom's toothbrush! I can brush my beak JUST like Mom! I can even put the toothbrush back in the holder where it belongs!.

If it's mine, it's mine. If it's yours, it's mine. If I see it, it's mine. If I think about it, it's mine. If I want it, it's mine. If I touched it first, it's mine. It's ALL MINE!.

  This is Rocky here and I am on a mission to get my good friend Lady Bird BOTW. She is a very sweet girl that has been through alot in her life and she really deserves to be BOTW. I would like to ask you if you could stop by and give her a vote everyday this week and show her how many good friends that she has out here. She also has a new sister named Dutchess and her mommy rescues abused birds and she is looking for any advise that you might have on helping her with Dutchess. Dutchess is a macaw and she was abused very badly and she is a biter. So if you could help her out with Dutchess she would really appreciate it. Thanks and PLEASE help Lady Bird out this week, she really deserves this award.... Thank you! Now to find Lady Bird, just go to the top of your page and hit the profile button, then type in Lady Bird where it says Search Name. She is the only cockatoo there the rest are macaws. Thanks again and I hope that you have a great day and I am also leaving you a vote to. Love, Rocky♥ R(*><~)R p.s. I love your pictures...

  New playstand for Kai!
I just added another photo of Kai on her brand new play stand! It took me about 3 days to finish it, and I still don't have the tile on the base yet. She has never had a play stand before, so once it was finished, she was terrified of it! After an hour of me standing in the middle of it, she decided to come look in the bowls and found cashews in the bowl! Once she ate the treats, she jumped down and ran away from it again.
Now she loves her perch because my boyfriend is her favorite person, and he gave her a kiss every time she sat on the stand. She's spent the entire day on it, and refuses to come down even to play with me!

Come visit me, Kai, Lucy & Cliffie.
