Description

I'm one handsome and pretty friendly lovebird who got out and got lost. I was pretty scared and wandering around trying to find a safe place to land. Well I saw a nice lady's house and decided to let myself in by crawling under her screen door. She was very surprised to see me just wander in but she was very nice. Little did I know she also had 2 large dogs that were thankfully sound asleep when I came in. I was able to fly to safety and she was able to let the dogs outside while she tried to figure out what to do with me. Hey, I thought I was fine just where I was (hiding on top of her curio).

She kindly let me share some strawberries that she had and I later flew over and helped myself to some of her pasta. I was very, very hungry! Thankfully the awesome lady found out about Mickaboo and contacted them right away. The lovebird coordinator then came and got me and I was back safe and sound in a nice cage where I could get good food, clean water, and the rest I had needed. I thanked her by being very nice and not even trying to bite or be aggressive towards my food or cage (pretty nice considering I could have been very protective given how hungry I was, don't you think?) Well after settling in my foster mom noticed something was not right about my droppings and I seemed to get out of breath fairly easy so off we went to one of the wonderful avian vets that Mickaboo uses. They checked me from beak to toe and even did an x-ray.

Turns out my liver is enlarged. It could be from different things like the stress of not having enough food, right now they have me on medicine that I'm going to be on for the next 6 months as my last visit showed it's starting to work and my lab results are looking better. I take my medicine very easily so it's not hard to give it to me. I take it twice a day and swallow it well like a good birdie.

I'm not too good at step up but I do know how and have demonstrated that I know how to. I will step up onto a perch if I land somewhere hard to reach.

If you would like to adopt me and have an awesome birdie buddy let the coordinator know.
