You can read about my continuing adventures, and those of other Mickaboo Poicephalus, on our Facebook page. Come visit us there!
Hi, I`m Circe, a Senegal Parrot who came to Mickaboo from a hoarding situation. I was terrified of my rescuer/foster parent at first but got over that in a day or so. Now I think she`s great!
My foster mom has been working with me to get me eating well, socialized, and has trained me to do some cool things. I can step up and down, turn around in a circle, target, and lay upside down with my feet in the air. I`ll even climb into my carrier on my own!
I was underweight when I came into Mickaboo. I`ve gained some but am still a little light. Whoever takes me in should weigh me every couple of days and encourage me to eat. I also barber myself a little, especially my flight feathers. We`re hopeful that I`ll outgrow this but my caretaker will have to keep an eye on it.
The good news is that I get along very well with people who will be patient and not come at me too quickly. If you let me meet you halfway, I`ll be your best friend! If you`d like to take me home, let Mickaboo know.
