Mihtu & Mihti's Info...

Mihtu & Mihti's Story...
Meet Mihtu and Mihti, a 19-month old pair of bonded cockatiels. These cuties are believed to be both male, per the vet, however Mihti may be female, and can be a little cage aggressive until she is out of the cage. They may be a little small, but have big personalities! They love all the perches and toys in their cages, and are just starting to take baths on a regular basis. Their current diet consists of a good mix of pellets and seed, and they are starting to eat fruits and veggies, which seem to be new to them. You will usually find them together, and they will preen each other constantly. If they are out of the cage, both will hop on your shoulders and want to hang out with you wherever you go! Both are rather quiet but have lovely little ‘peeps’ throughout the day. Even working on your computer or relaxing on the lanai to catch a little sun is fun for them. They don’t like to be apart and if one is out of sight, the other can get a little frantic. They are learning step up and are very curious of new things that you can teach them. Won’t you give them a happy place that they can call home?

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Mihtu & Mihti, a Tampa Cockatiel was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Cockatiel for sale in Tampa, or seeking a Cockatiel from a breeder in Tampa.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Tampa already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Tampa breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Cockatiel breeders who help with Cockatiel rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Tampa paves the way for another one to be saved.
