Karma came to Mickaboo under dire circumstances and with a large sarcoma of the tongue that was impacting her breathing and ability to eat. Her prognosis was grim and it was determined she probably did not have much time left to enjoy her life. Here we are seven months later and Karma is thriving in her foster home. While she still has the cancer, with laser treatments every six weeks or so and a healthy diet she is looking better than ever. Her skin is no longer flaky and her feathers are bright and shiny and she has complete use of her tongue, although she does prefer to grab things on her non-cancer side. Her hormone fluctuations are being managed with an implant, which has turned her from an overly amorous bird, to a loving calm companion. She is a joy to be around. When she wants something she never screams but uses her words, including many “I love you”, “peek-a-boo”, Meow, “Hey Baby”, “Hiiiiii”, various whistles, kissy sounds and more. Your donations are keeping this wonderful bird healthy and entertaining every one she meets. She is a favorite at For the Birds as she greets many a patient’s mom or dad. Karma definitely has her favorites and let’s you know if you are on her special person list – which gets longer every day. Thanks so much for supporting her health care. She has surprised everyone with her zest for life – including the vets caring for her that continue to be amazed that she’s still here. Thanks go out to Dr. Fern Van Sant for treating her and Dr. Munir Kureshi for loaning the right laser for her continuing treatment. And if you would like to adopt this adorable wonderful bird and pay for her cancer treatments - she will light up your life.
Notice: Due to the sometimes difficult nature of amazons, Mickaboo prefers that amazons not be a households' first parrot. If you intend to house an amazon, please research the following websites:
