This cute little guy is looking for a new family after the sudden passing of his (male)owner with whom he has shared his life for over 25+ years – he is estimated to be at minimum 37 years old.
He had only bonded with his previous owner and does not like women very much and tolerates some men. He has been known to chase/bite the woman in the current home so it is preferred that he is adopted by a male. As of April 2023 he has not chased any women and while he will grab your hair on occasion, he has not bitten but has lunged a few times.
Based on his life experiences – he cannot be adopted into a home with small children.
Please have realistic expectations when considering adoption – this little guy is going to take time to learn how to trust/love again and an immediate bond is not likely going to happen.
He is somewhat protective of his cage and a few favorite toys.
He does chase cats in the home if there are any.
And while he did live with other parrots years ago, he does not do well with them and has attacked a few. He needs to be an only bird.
As he is a cockatoo – and they are known to be very loud at times – NO shared dwellings/apts etc.
Please research and understand the needs of a cockatoo – this is not a first time bird for an inexperienced person.
Please fill out an application form located on the website for foster and/or adoption.
