I read on FB. A woman had to go to the hospital and was in a long time. When she got out the brother who was suppose to be caring for her bird had sold it. By the time she found out it had changed so many hands that she could not find it. She sent the word out on FB that it was her beloved Cockatoo with a ring and told it's personality. I never heard if she got it back but she searched more than a year. The ring means nothing if the human reading it does not care.
People who go out of their way to deeply hurt the two beings, human and bird, should be caned like they do in China.
I moved here at night. The next morning I heard a Cockatiel outside. I called it and put food out for it. I even opened the Cockatiel window hoping my Tiels would call it in. I walked around and told neighbors that I had not yet met that their was a Cockatiel on the loose and to let me know if they see it or to catch it if possible to pass to me or I would teach the person if he wanted to keep it when an owner did not claim it.
I was really stressed over a Cockatiel that I did not know but should have helped. That little being that I did not know was out there among preditors without a flock for protection. When I could no longer hear it I put on my rose colored glasses
and told myself it had found a wild flock of some kind to join. (My Bubba joined a Starling flock many years before.) My heart was breaking for this little unknown Tiel.
I am afraid I would do physical harm to anyone who harmed or neglected a pet. I have reported many people, two of which were friends who would not listen to me. I have threatened my daughter. I tell her if she was not my daughter I would see to it that she never had another pet. With her I just take care of them to know they don't suffer.
I really hurt for a little unknown bird. Loosing your companion must be about killing you. I am so sorry that the woman has gone through this. I hope she finds it and beats the sh.t out of her husband before throwing him out.
The Cockatiel I was following turned out to be one of mine. It was Max one I had not had long. I finally counted mine and was one short. Because there were so many in the flock it took a while to see which one was missing. It broke my heart. I hurt for his family which was a mate and two yearling offspring. I had taken the family when I found out that they were not cared for properly.
I have to keep my rose colored glasses
on and believe he is still out there and living and being taught to servive by a wild flock.
I adjusted my life to take in any bird that was listed cheap or free. They would be considered throw aways and I am always afraid that it will go to someone who wants the show and tell of a bird or wants to use it as snake food.
Please when you hear of such birds, claim them. Check if it has an owner missing it. If you cannot keep it you can at least take care of it and put it back to health and learn it's personality so you can rehome it to the right people.
I would never do this. I get too attached. I did rehome two budgies that were rescued when I decided I was not doing what was best for them. They are safe, happy and cared for. They are Wolf's 2 budgies. This soft hearted man took them in even though he already had many. Gotta love him.
I agree that we need a new icon.
