Re: Another day, another rescue.

Oh Beatrice, bless you! That poor, poor bird! I would take him in a heartbeat, only I can't afford even an economy berth across the Specific Ocean. I hope you keep him! At least he's easy, unlike my naughty girl who is sex-crazed and hyperactive. I think Sydney is a noble name for a cockatoo (although we don't have U2s in Oz). LOL! You could get five more and call them Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Adelaide and Hobart.

Joking.

Re: Another day, another rescue.

Another amazing rescue, you'll work your magic and rehabilitate Sydney! About that betting pool, odds are good he's in his forever home *if* he turns out to be a relatively low maintenance cockatoo. They exist, ask me how I know lol.

Frankie already has opinions on the matter. At this point the only way I can see me keeping him forever is if Dr J says he needs end of life care. I donít think so, but given his condition and unknown age (maybe 25, but who knows), itís a possibility.

Re: Another day, another rescue.

He’s not in terrible shape considering everything. He’s a little underweight which is obvious just looking at him, but not enough to get super worried. He does have a minor jaw deformity which is probably why he struggles to eat. Vet recommended pasta with veggie purťes for now and see what I can do with soft veggies. He got his beak and nails trimmed and looks far more comfortable now. CBC should be back this evening and the rest of the labs within a week.

Re: Another day, another rescue.

He's definitely too skinny but other than that, he doesn't look too bad. My U2 never closes his beak all the way; it's just what they do. Sydney's looks fine in the photo.

Itís nit that he doesnít, itís that he canít. And the vet confirmed structural deformity in his jaw, which stinks, but at least I know what Iím up against and can work with it.
