Unhappy Grieving a loss

I have a favor to ask all you bird lovers. I just lost my beloved cockatoo Molly last night, she's been in my life for the past 15 years. I was wondering if anyone with a pet cockatoo could get an imprint/footprint of the bottom of their birds foot. I would like to get a tattoo in remembrance of her but unfortunately wasn't able to get it from her actual print. Any stamp like or paint prints would do. I appreciate all the help in advanced, thank you.

Yes I am sure we can try? I am so sorry for your loss of Molly. Would it help to tell us a bit about her?

Re: Grieving a loss

Thank you. I got her was I was in the 6th grade, she was my age at the time. We have grown up together and she would have turned 27 this year. Her vocabulary wasn't the best but listening to her babble about her day once I got home from work was the best.

I know all birds get get a little loud and sometimes annoying when they don't listen. But because of my experience I'd just like to give a little advice...Molly was my partner in life she waited to hear all about my day when i got home. Don't ever leave angry because you never know when something tragic could happen, remind them they are loved every time you leave.

Hopefully we can find a realistic looking print i would be forever grateful. Even if you find one online that would work as well. Thank you in advance I've just yet to have any luck of a realistic picture on the web.

Audrey, I made a donation in Molly's name to Cornell University Vet program, directed to go expressly to parrot related studies. So sorry you lost your Molly.

I am so sorry for your loss of Molly

I think you have a wonderful idea. What species of cockatoo was she? We have a very diverse membership here, so it is likely someone on the forum with her species would be able to get you a print in the right size too.
