I was called by Bird Rescue that a man had brought a bird up from Florida with him and did not want it. The man had brought the bird up all the way in a brown shopping bag. The poor bird was scared & completely bald, all but her head. She was nursed back to health & I just had to take her. Now she is in love with my husband & he is the only person who can handle her to this day. She does have most of her down back & lets her feathers grow in for a while before she pulls them out. But she is very happy now.. Awards

Hi! My name is Cherokee

I am an African Grey from Dandridge, TN.

Girlie Girl

9 years old   F

African Grey

PEANUTS. I love them. Oatmeal as long as I have a spoon.

On top of my cage in the sun.

I hate those feathers, so I fix them. I make sure they are all gone.

She rescued me and gave me a loving home and a big place to stay.

Likes to mimic everything & eat oatmeal with a spoon..

Please let me know if this beautiful bird has been scanned for a microchip. My Cherokee was stolen in 2004, and she knows her name among nicknames and our names, songs, and play habits. If she's happy, so am I, but we've been searching for 12 years. Please respond

  Hi, from Fortune, Patrick and Lonnie
Our house is quieter now that all the Christmas company have gone home. We are enjoying more time with Mommy and Daddy. It is nerve-wracking to have all the human noise in the house. We have our own room but still........ we want to make the noise ourselves. Daddy is watching football and we are rooting for his teams...heheh We will hit the vote thingy for you and the rest of the flock. Take care of your feathers. Talk later...xoxoxo

Talk about bring tears to my eyes.... I can't bear to think what you must have been feeling in the brown paper bag... how horrific. {wiping tears} What a miraculous fid you are to overcome that and trust another human...your mommy and daddy must be very special and I'm so happy you are safe now. You are one fabulous looking bird too! What a face! Very Handsome!

  Hi Cherokee
Hello Cherokee. It sounds like you and Peanut have similar terrible histories. I'm very sorry that you were treated that way. I'm glad you now have a home where you're loved and understood. Even featherless, you're still a prety girl and have a lot to offer your companions.

Come visit me, Pascal.

  Hello Cherokee, You like oatmeal with a spoon? That's my favourite. It has to be warm and smooth too! Their is nothing better than a spoon. You can toss them at people, put them over your neck and make kissing sounds, wave it in front of you and sing "Spooooooooooon." One of my favourite phrases is, "So spoon, Baby." Well ,talk to you spoon. Poirot

  poor baby. I cannot believe the way people treat us birds sometimes. I'm really thankful you have a nice home and parents now. I guess i'm really lucky my mom bought me when i was still a lil guy and never had anyone mistreat me. Good Luck.

Come visit me, Madi, Houdini, Jeter, Ely, Malone, Diamond & Fenway.
