I am Georgi, an older, distinguished and dignified gentleman budgie. I have had it pretty rough until a nice lady from Mickaboo came and saved me and my friend Oscar. We were living in a garage in a filthy cage and I had contacted a nasty case of face mites. It was so bad I could barely see. We were taken to the vet and while it took a lot of medication and time I eventually got better.
Sadly Oscar passed away soon after we came to our new foster home and I was very depressed for a long while. It took some time to accept but I have perked up and resumed being my vocal self. My foster mom says when I get going I sound like several birds having a conversation. Do not let that daunt you; I am actually not that loud. I just provide good background music for your home.
Because I am an older bird and have likely not been handled for much of my life I am rightly a bit nervous about trying new things. I have only ever been feed seed so don't really want to try new foods, even though I should! My foster mom is trying to get me to try healthy foods like pellets, veggies and grains. I also never had toys (how awful is that?) so not too sure what to make of them. Maybe you could show me how they work? And like I said before, I've never really been handled but I am learning to climb onto a hand for a treat of millet.
I have become very best friends with another budgie here called Lorito. We do everything together. We love playing on our boing-and chasing each other up and down. During out time we love to sit together on the playpen our foster mom has for us. It would be best if we were adopted together.
I guess people aren't all bad then, especially the ones from Mickaboo who give us birds a second chance and a warm, clean, safe place to live. If you have a place in your home and in your heart to give a gent like me a place to live out his golden years then please contact my coordinator.
