This is NOT a regular adoption. If this ad brings in an appropriate person or family, you MAY get me in the future. If no one applies who is perfect, my mother and I will look elsewhere. I'm going to be VERY, VERY picky when choosing my next home. I am just trying to find someone who may want to inherit a wonderful companion when my mommy can no longer care for me.
Of course, in reality, I do more care-giving for her than she has to do for me. I always make my mommy laugh, and I tell her how much I love her (especially when I want a treat of fresh fruit). Sometimes I sing a song when I see that she has especially good fruit, like berries. I ask and answer questions, and I get louder if you don't answer a question when I ask it. But I never scream. I sleep in mom's bedroom, but I have never wakened her. I only start talking when she is wide awake and getting dressed. Like I said, I'm a pretty smart girl.
If you are interested adopting a funny, friendly, loving, intelligent, talky companion some time in the future, I would like to get to know you to be sure that you will provide the kind of home I deserve. I do not intend to move until something happens to my mother. But I need a back-up home in case a medical emergency makes me homeless.
Since I have been raised as an only bird, I don't think I would enjoy being in an aviary situation. I want to continue being part of a family, like I have been all of my life.
By the way, I am a very pretty girl of a very well-known species, not an "Other/Unknown", but mom said I am not allowed to reveal my species until we do some screening. She wants me to have a family who wants me for my personality, not just because I'm a member of a particular species.
Because I am such a good talker, Mom does not allow me to use a phone because I might use up all her minutes. So I can only screen via email. She's pretty busy sometimes and does not let me have the computer every day. It could take me a week to respond. If you might consider being my next family, please tell me:
1. Your family situation, including home, animals, kids, working/school hours.
2. Why do you want me and what do you consider to be the most important characteristic of a companion bird?
3. Describe what I would do during a typical week in your home.
4. Discuss all current and previous companion animals of the past 10 years.
You can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
