Hello there! My name is Stevie-possibly short for Steveann or something like that as I?m a lady bird umbrella cockatoo. I'm about 30 years old- having lived the last eight years of my life with one family and 20 plus years with another family before that.
I am quite the social butterfly and enjoy lots of attention from anyone and everyone. Do I like being near humans- yes! Do I like being held by my human? Yes! Did I like being home for 10-12 hours alone when my best human friend was at work? No! This is why she is re-homing me and asked Mickaboo to help. My buddy worked long hours?very long hours and I was not happy at all about this. She wants me to have a good rest of my life happy and content although I will mess her dreadfully I do agree I need to move.
I have developed a couple conditions as I aged one being that of blindness. One of my eyes has had loss of vision for a very long time but my second eye lost vision quite suddenly. I'm a pretty smart gal though and have learned to eat, groom and get around quite well despite this handicap.
My other limiting condition is that of arthritis. I take pain meds for this and it has helped a great deal. I also tend to chew on my feet, so need a special soothing cream for that. I will need these things for the rest of my life according to my avian vet. It is due to these conditions that I am a special needs bird and will need just the right caring and understanding home to take me in.
If you think you can do this, please get ahold of Mickaboo. In exchange for your long term care of me I will provide you with friendly avian companionship for many years to come!
Notice: Due to the notoriously difficult nature of cockatoos, Mickaboo prefers that cockatoos not be a households' first parrot. If you intend to house a cockatoo, please research the following websites:
