Pookie update..

Sponsored Links
Hi folks

Well I spent most of the day with Pookie and DJ..DJ and I went to brunch and I watched a football game with him. Brought Pookie a couple toys,which DJ was VERY appreciative for He said Pookie will prolly love them.
So during the time I was there,I'd go into her room and talk real sweet and calm to her,she still did her big bird act but didn't shuffle back and forth.
When I first got there,I brought a corn muffin from Dunkin Donuts and asked DJ if I could give it to her,he said SURE..but if I value my fingers,don't put them in between the bars ( he had her door padlocked coz he said she's a great escape artist).
I held a piece in my fingers and talked real quietly to her and asked her if she'd like a bite..she ALMOST came to my fingers to take it,then backed off! So I was able to drop a nice sized piece in her food bowl.

An hour or so, I asked if he'd take her out and bring her into the living room to watch tv with us,and see how she would react to me. I was very surprised that he said "OK..but you have to sit quietly and talk softly"
OK...no problem!

Well..he went to get her and I heard him ask her to come out and watch football with him and "Uncle Jimmy"
He said she wasn't stepping up to his hand,then when she heard my voice,he said her hat went high,she stood like a statue and would NOT budge Oh well...he tried at least.

So..I took a few pictures..don't get too upset on the conditions.. Oh,and when I went in to say good-bye to her,I could see that she ate some of the corn muffin piece

Thanks Jim!

Both Pookie and DJ need to get out and even thou Pookie didn't fall in Love with you. You introduced a bit of difference into her life and DJ's also.

Your the greatest!

Re: Pookie update..

Well Jim, a journey of a thousand steps begins with the first one! Toos are notoriously cagey critters, but one day Pookie will probably warm to you. On her terms, of course!

I'm sure D.J. appreciated the visit and outing more than you know! For all the wear and tear, Pookie seems happy and looks good.

Re: Pookie update..

Talked with DJ earlier..he had Pookie out,and showed her the toy I gave her..he set it on the floor and she hopped from his arm to the floor and walked over to the toy. He said she stopped..looked at it..then picked it up,started to throw it around..yelled at it..threw it some more..he said she was having a ball with it lol..dj said Pookie says THANKS UNCLE JIMMY lol.

Re: Pookie update..

Aww! Sounds like Uncle Jimmy had a pretty nice visit there. Good job buddy =)

Maybe next time you can bring some newspapers and offer to help clean up a bit? Could be hard to approach without offending DJ but you probably know more or less what makes DJ tick and could help him out a bit. From one bird lover brother to another you know =)

Re: Pookie update..

Sounds like you have a good understanding of your friend's pace, physical and emotional. It's not easy to talk to mens about personal things. It's above my pay grade for sure. The cage looks awful to human eyes, but the 'too seems to love him and not care about that. Just, the banging on the cage is dreadful...does he have a cage cover, that might keep the bird quiet? If not I have a sewing machine.
