I have a secret. And it involves a cockatoo. Well after
MANY MANY years of wanting one, and studying. Oh yes the
studying. Thinking I may make a bad parront to a cockatoo
because of what I read off of mytoos, but that also made
me studying even more. And well. To make a long story
short. Back in November a week before Thanksgiving I got
in contact with Mollywood, and well.. The day after
Thanksgiving. I became officialy a Too owner. A Umbrella
Too that is. And we're doing great!
It took Bokka a couple weeks to totally get used to
everything around the house from; the occasional
arguements, yelling, hollering, singing, regular noises,
laughing, and everything from changing food diet from all
seeds and pasta - - to a seed/pellet and fresh greens/
veggies and fruits, to cooked foods every day :) He eats
everything I eat. And more! Luckily I am a healthy eater ;)
But to be honest. I dont think it took him too long to get
use to us. I think it was takign us longer to get used to
a needy velcro Too. He is officially "My bird" Im "his"
female. He prefers females. And he is finally "OK" with my
mom. He wont try and kill her.. or the men around the
hosue like he use to. However he will get defensive
looking when males are around but he has settled down
GREATLY. And thats in 2 months time. I think he will do
GREAT in our family. He is my love. He's 12yo only 5 yrs
younger than me. It gladdens my heart him and I will grow
old together. And most likely we'll die together. Im so
happy. I just wanted to finally tell you Too people that I
am not and have been a Too owner.. err...slave for the
past 2 months. And well We're doing good :)
Oh by the way. His name is Bokka. :) It was Blanca.. but
he at first said his name, then started to say " Blokka"
because we started to call him "Awww what a cute BOK BOK"
lol, and soo... he changed his name to Bokka. lol. PLus
its easier on our tongues.. dont really like saying the
name "blanca" well anywho. Thanks for listenign to me :)
