I want to share my new arrival with you all!
Pepe is at least 44 years old. He was probably wild caught and lived in a cage the size of a cat carrier stood on end for 20 years. He moved to another family member who kept him in a cockateil cage (about twice as big as the other one) Luckily he was loved and let out alot, but they didn't really know Pepes true needs. He only had dowl perches and one toy of paper strips tied to his cage by string.
He was taken in by UK Parrot Rescue when the owner moved to a smaller place and couldn't keep him anymore.
He is now with me in his forever home and has come on in leaps and bounds since the 6 weeks he has been with UKPR. He arrived at mine at 3am yesterday morning!
I thought he may take a while to settle in but I coudn't have been more wrong! He has totaly put his trust in me from the first moment. I think it is called love at first sight
Here's a little clip of him on his first day here enjoying scritches. Before I had the camera he was closing his eyes too.
He is in the process of learning how to play with toys, using different perches, eating new foods and feeling comforable in a proper sized cage. Bless his cotton socks
Jojo..... if you spot this thread, you might be interested to know that Pepe isn't to good with balance either! I know he's an old boy but I thought of Flora as soon as I felt him wobble when I moved. I'm sure he would easily fall to the floor like a brick if I'm not careful enough!
