Hi! My name is Pookie

I am a Cockatiel from Gilbert, AZ.


18 years old   F


Millet Spray

Top of the cage

Wing-clipping time

She took me from the people who were going to return me to the pet store.

Rubs her head on her "cotton candy" toy. Bathes only in her water dish..

HISS. I want you all to stay away 'cause I'm big and scary, not really just want you to think I am..

  Hello Pookie!
I was thinking that I'd not yet met you but I see that back when I first joined the BC you were kind enough to welcome me and congratulate me on my surprise BOTW win. What a week that was. Wow. I'd forgotten how sad your story was- the being covered all the time, in a cage with no perches, and little to eat. How dreadful. So glad you're where you're at NOW.

Hope the coming Holiday weekend is a pleasant one for you and your family. R ('>

Come visit me, RaneBeau ('> Thank You, Friends!!.

  Mom tries to make toys for me too. She bought me one toy that had different strings and ropes hanging from it. I wouldn't go near it cause I hated the texture of some of the rops on it. So she had to go through it and take them all off. Now I will walk by it but I still won't play with it. haha.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Even though we dont play with our toys it's still nice to have them! I like watching my mom walk around the house wearing them. As much as I liek to bite her clothes and stuff you would think it would work. I still know they are birdtoys though. She doesn't fool me. I get lots of healthy food too now but I would rather jsut eat almonds and peanuts all day. Mom said I can't have them that much though cause then I dont want to eat anything else. We are workign on that though. That's funny that your sister is scared of you. It's funny how some big birds can be scared of little ones. haha.

Come visit me, Chester.

I haven't found a vet in Gilbert. I need to get Paulie in for a checkup, but not sure where to take him. Sorry, I'm no help.

  Hi Pookie! I'm very happy for you that you have a wonderful home now. Being in a home with a family that treats you the way you should be is the best thing ever. I was so happy when I was rescued. I was in a cage too small for me too. I did have a perch though, it was too big for me though. I couldnt hang on it it at all. I didnt have any toys or anything, and they only fed me people food. They also had this ugly dirty mildewy cover that was connected to my cage. Mom had to cut it off. They used to big hook to keep my cage door closed! Amazing what some people do to us birds. I'm in a beautiful bird cage now. It's like a mansion compared to my old one. I have toys now too although I don't play with them. Whats your cage like now? How many perches do you have? I have 3 although I only use one most of the time. Do you let your family pick you up and stuff?

Come visit me, Chester.

Thanks for the congrats; words can't express how surprised I am at being picked for Bird of the Week! There's not a bird that I've met here that doesn't deserve the same honor. Stories like yours just break my birdie heart...thank goodness there are also wonderful people in the world who make life better. May you always have sweet dreams (no nightmares from the past). Here's a birdie hug to you. (And a vote too!) R

  Hi Pookie!
Gonzo here. I am so glad that you are finally in a great home! What a lucky birdie you are! Most of us are second hand birds, too, but my mom believes that every birdie deserves a great home! My mom and dad bought me even though I had a broken wing. They still think I am perfect! Isn't it fun to make everyone think that you are big and scary! I like to do that, too! I had to give you a vote because you are very cute!

  Oh, Pookie, I'm so glad you got a good home. I had a rough beginning, too, but now I am loved and petted and supplied with millet, which I love. Thanks for visiting my friend, Sergie (he's my friend, even if he won't let me preen him.) -- Lunus
