This is "PIZO'S Story:
I rescued "Pizo" from a relative. I found her at the bottom of her cage on somekind of cardboard stuff, hidding in a cardboard box. When I got her home, I realized she could not perch. She had nails that were so bad that they were curling, she had a limp because of them not being trimmed on a regular basis. The next day I took her right to the vet(her very first time to see a vet in 24 years). She was put on 2 oral medication. I thought how am I going to get medication in a parrot that has never been handled? The first 2 days I used gloves, which completely sent her in a tailspin.(no pun intended) After that, I figured if I get bit, yeh, it's going to hurt but she needs her medication, no matter what. I had to grab her out of cage, wrap her in a towel and medicated her. It really turned out great!!
After a month of meds, Pizo now does not need a sleep cage with pillows(in case she fell off her perch)!! She is starting to respond to my presence. She is being more vocal. I know she is in a better home and will recieve the attention she deserves. 24 years is a very long time not to be touched. I know I have my work cut out for me but "Pizo" is worth it!!!!

Hi! My name is Pizo

She Rescue me from a pretty crummy life. When I saw her I knew I was going to be ok. It may take me a while because to trust her because in my past life no one ever paid much attention to me! My "New" Mom can't seem to get enough of me(what a strange feeling)I'll let you know how it's going with my "New" Mom!

She likes to wave, bob hear head and dance!.

  Hi! Pizo,

I'm so happy for you that you got a great new home. You so deserve it. My name is Oz and I'm a Rose Breasted Cockatoo. My Mommy is my 3rd owner and she says that I'm now in my Forever Home. I'm glad cause I really like it here. She also wants to know if I know that I'm a Cockatoo cause I'm so sweet and very quiet. What does she mean by that? Please stop by and see me and my Flock cause we love company. I'm gonna leave you a vote before I go. Bye for now.

  Hi from Suzie
Welcome to BC Pizo ) I'm also a grey and I want a grey to get BOTW sometime so here's my vote for you! I'm so sorry about your neglect. But now you have a great home with love and care. I'm sure you'll learn to trust your new mom soon. I see you live with a little Quaker. I live with Kirby, a Barraband's (aka Superb). He was here first so he's a bit uppity! LOL!!! You're a beautiful bird Pizo. Relax and enjoy your new life :) :)

Come visit me, Kirby & Suzie.
