I Left Him Scared & Screaming
November 21, 2013 at 8:50 PM
I hate this. My parrot is sick. He is mentally as intelligent as a five year old. I noticed he was sitting on the bottom of his cage tonight weak. We had to go to the vet and then rushed to an avian emergency vet two hours away. He got fluids and baby formula. We had to leave him though. He knew we were going and freaked. He kept saying mama for me and I wept. The hospital live in cat was trying to cuddle with me. I just sat there crying as Dan paid the admitting fees. I know its odd to some but he's a baby and scared. He knows he's not ok and knows I left him. He is going to be pissed after this. He doesn't deserve this. I wish more vets took birds so he was closer. I am so afraid of losing him. We still don't now what is wrong. Waiting on lab work.

    Awe I am so sorry but it sounds like you left him in good hands he will be fine just have some faith and stay positive , my SIL works for North Star vet hospital and they have a Avian specialist on hand so she sees this a lot its rough on everyone just stay clam and know he will be fine. She also has a green naped amazon parrot they also have the mind a small child they are very smart .

    I'm sorry. I know how you feel. I had to leave my baby kitten over night once because of how bad he was. He was my little budda. It really sucks cause after a couple years my ex made me get ride of him because he was always climbing in to cuddle with my son then a new born.

    Oh yes. He can talk to me to tell me things like "There's a kitty outside." & "Mails here." & "I'm good boy. Cookie?" He gives kisses and cuddles. He goes to play groups at a parrot shop and enjoys shopping for toys. Oh and he plays peek a boo and chases the cat who is his best friend. Yes the parrot chases the tabby.

    No no no. I had Dan not like my parrot but he dealt with it. He would never do that to me or our animals.
