Best friends forever

Hi, I’m Buddy

PP number: PP873

 

Name: Buddy

 

Species: Umbrella Cockatoo

 

Cage supplied: Yes

 

Adoption fee: £400

 

Description:  

Introduction:

Hi everyone, I’m Buddy!! I’m a very happy and chatty Too. Appearances can be deceptive though as I might look like a cockatoo but really love barking like a dog to keep people guessing.

Current Presentation:

When I first arrived here I was a little bit timid as it was a big change. I was very brave little bird dog and let my SH mum stroke me though the cage to start with then ventured out and sat on my cage door.

Diet:

As much as I love my blocks there is one thing that I despise, Vegetables and fruit…… eugh!! Whoever thought that would be a good idea I will stick to my AS30 of course pistachios, pecans, almonds, brazil nuts and walnuts when I’m allowed. I try not to listen to my SH Mum telling me that I really should keep trying the fruit and veg, I can’t think of anything worse!

Enrichment:

I luuuurve chewing wood and my SH Mum says I could win an award for shredding the wooden blocks she gives me super fast. I like to climb down onto the floor and go for a walk.

Summary:

There are three big dogs living here and it drives them insane that I can talk their language. Obviously though they aren’t allowed in when I’m out.

My SH Dad I’m not so sure about, I just keep out of his way when I’m out which my SH Mum says is very polite of me. I do like it though when he comes over to my cage and we have a good chat about cups of tea and tickles. There is a 12yr old girl that lives here to, I’m still not sure how I feel about her as when we were all sat on the sofa watching TV I walked over and gave her a little peck. She has given me my favourite pistachios though when I’m in my cage. I adore pistachios because they are so easy to throw across the room.

There is an older lady that visits who my SH mum calls mum, I do sometimes let her stroke me through the cage but other times I may peck at the cage bars.

I’m not used to other birds so it was a bit strange for me to start. There is a little orange creature which I think is a busy bumble bee that flits around but I’m told he is a Sun Conure. I’m not keen on him flying around and the first time I saw him do it a screamed like a little girl!! I don’t know what all the fuss is about with this flying thing, it looks far too energetic so I prefer to walk.

I like to say hello to everyone that comes in, I ask for a tickle and say bye when people leave. I say Buddy is a good boy, cup of tea, night night darling, go bye bye’s and whistle a little bit too. I can be quite loud at times but then that bumble bee is aswell so my SH Mum says its no bother.

At night time I am covered up and I stay quiet until the morning.

I hope to find my forever home soon.

Lots of love Buddy
