Re: Shadow

Now THAT's what I call a DIVA.
Gorgeous, ladylike, intelligent...
She makes me think of a Golden-age Hollywood movie star... Olivia de Havilland, maybe.

Re: Shadow

It's sounds like you guys are a family that's meant to be. One thing I thought of when I read this was that her ability to adapt and be so caring etc must be a reflection of the treatment she got from her previous family.
It's easy to find posts on forums or watch YouTube videos and see Toos that have been rescued and are from families/owners who mistreated them. In turn, the new family has to gain its trust enough to rehabilitate them before they forget the old behaviors and can be a part of the family.
It's just nice to hear of a Too that probably came from a loving home where it was treated as a family member, socialized & respected for being a creature of beauty and intelligence and in turn she has manners and is loving.
I feel too many people take on animals without regard to how they'll feel when they're taken into a strange place, expected to be seen and not heard and is treated like nothing but a lowly animal. I feel we have a responsibility to work work with them, teach them the things that experienced bird lovers tell us are important for their continuing success in a family and to respect that they are different than us in communicating but that like us - all they want in the end us to be accepted for who & what we are and loved.
I hope it works out for you because it sounds like you love her too much to part with her.
Good luck!
Peg
