Re: Lost Kizzy out the Door!

Also post on FaceBook (make sure the post is public) and call every vet's office within a hundred miles. Then send them flyers in the mail, or email them, depending on what they say. Many people who find a lot bird will take it to the vet, or call the vet saying they found this green bird. Same with pet stores, call and email/write. Think what you'd do if you found a parrot .. catch it right away, then try to locate the owner, right? Though some people don't do the latter ... check Craigslist but beware scammers, don't give out too much info. You know, school is in session ... might not be a bad idea to see if the local high schools will let you post something on the bulletin board or in a school publication - kids talk to kids and one of them might know something.

Can you stay near a window during the day so if Kizzy is near she will see you? I'm saying all these words because I feel so helpless. I hope she comes back soon. If you saw where she went, and can walk in that direction, you might come across someone or something helpful.

No sign. And now I'm sure. I can't stand this.

Re: Lost Kizzy out the Door!

Ladyhawk my heart breaks for you. We went through this just before Christmas. Somehow , our blue managed eight days in the wild with extreme heat, heavy rain, and gusty winds. He was found in the township over.

In the end, social media was the winner. We hammered every facebook site, local buy sell site etc and made plenty of posters to flood the main street. Eventually, the person who found him couldn't find our initial posts but knew she had seen somewhere, something about a loose parrot.

It was gusty when he took off, and so I only spent ten/twenty minutes on that initial search before switching to getting the word out. The quicker you can flood your neighbourhood with social media and posters, the more eyes are out looking. They might not help you actively search, but they will know to report her if she's seen.

I'll watch this with post with great hope. I'm thinking of you. Be kind to yourself xx

Re: Lost Kizzy out the Door!

Also,it was Henry's calls that attracted Clarke down off the tree.. do you have a little bluetooth speaker or something of the like? I'd play amazon calls out of that.
I understand the hope and panic when looking for her, but when you are calling her, make sure you have as much control over your voice as possible. Keep it lively, warm and upbeat - she needs you to sound familiar.

Re: Lost Kizzy out the Door!

Thereís also an app, and maybe a corresponding website, called NextDoor. It connects you with other people in your neighborhood and gives you one more way to get the word out.

Iím sending all my beat thoughts to you and Kizzy, hoping she finds her way home soon.

Re: Lost Kizzy out the Door!

When I was a child I lost a budgie, we found Joey over a week later. There was no internet or www then so we relied upon placing cards in every newsagent window. He actually made it around 10 miles away and across very busy roads.

Dont lose hope!
