65 years old   M

Blue-and-Gold Macaw


Very greatful he has a cage. He LOVES his own cage!

Cookie was abused, he was kept in a closet for days at a time with no food or water.

They think I am Beautiful and they love me.

Cookie is blind in one eye due to abuse he suffered, you must take caution when moving to fast..

Every Parrot Is Priceless..

  Thank God for people like you.
I think a prison sentence is in order for the human - he/she should be in the closet.

Your motto is so right!!!!!! If only more people would think this way there wouldn't be so many abused parrots and other animals. we think you are beautiful too and were so glad you have a wonderful home now with lots of love.

  You folks are angels
I am so glad Cookie's life has been blessed and thank you for sharing this sad horrible story. And thank you for rescuing him. It made me cry.

Come visit me, Fergie, Max, Little Ham & Echo.

  Oh that is so HORRIBLE what happened to Cookie. No bird, or any animal for that matter, should EVER have to go through that. UGH...what is wrong with people! At least you have people now who are patient and will have a GREAT life with them. If you don't mind me asking, are you really 55 years old or is that a guess? Are you wild caught?

Come visit me, Sophie, Toenail, Ruby & Dante.

  I'm very glad he has a new home with people who love him. I think rescue bird owners have the love and patience of a Saint. God bless you Cookie.

Come visit me, Merlin.

  Cookie, You are beautiful. We are happy you have found a good home. I have 3 rehomed birds, none with such a dreadful past. You have many wonderful years ahead with your new home. Be happy. Your right "every parrot is priceless" I know it doesn't sound so nice, but I'd like to put those people in that closet.

Come visit me, Sammy, Angel, Doowee & Moses.

What Angels you are! I feel as you do, 2 of my birds are Grey, Pepper came from a not-so-nice situation.
What a privilege to be able to be the Caregiver of such an elderly bird. Pepper is 15 and I am humbled by it. Cookie is 55 and is still living life. What a great thing for her to spend time with such loving people. I have such respect for the relationship you have been able to establish! Best of luck and lots of Joy!
Happy Holiday!

Come visit me, Parker (The "Memo Bird" in Bird Talk) & Pepper.

  I'm so glad to hear that there are more and more of us that have that huge heart to offer to a neglected bird. I have a second rescue bird myself and nothing makes me feel better than to know I can be of good to that bird, no matter what point in it's life it deserves to have you and I by it's side. Thanks millions from me to you.

Come visit me, Corky, LuLu, ANGEL, Arie & ZIGGY.

  Much love to Cookie from me and my Blue and Gold. I hate hearing about things like this but am glad to hear he is in good hands now. Everyone (people and animals alike)should be treated with respect and love.

Come visit me, Rawlie.

  That breaks my heart, about Cookie's past, People can be so mean and dumb they don't understand Macaws are like a 2 year old. My Blue and Gold prefers his cage instead of hanging around with the Scarlett and Catalina. I can handle him though. I got him when he was 8 years, my other two are only 4 I raised them from babies. I call them the 3 imps...

Come visit me, Pico, Dewey, Alf & Mango.
