Re: Loving home wanting a Grey(or any larger bird) in Missou

When did I say I didn't have enough money to buy a cocktiel? I
The one I saw so close to I was given. We have bought cocktiels
before(from breeders).Thats the reason I was given the free one
because someone who loved one of our cockatiels(who we wouldn't sale)
bought one that they couldn't handle.SO I got him.
As for people that buy their birds.Get off your high horse
everywhere.Anyone can go buy a bird.Tons of people fall in love with
oocktoos and buy them,Only to realize when the bird is no longer a
baby they can't handle it.Thats why there are more cockatoos needing
homes then any others. Having the money to buy from a breeder or pet
shops doesn't mean you'll give that bird a good home.Not at all.
Don't honey me. I didn't try once to use a "sad" story on you. I
know everyone has ups and downs.I didn't once say mine downs were
worse then anyone elses.I didn't give you any of my down stories. I
gave one story about my bird. To make you understand why I don't
want a smaller bird. I also didn't try to make you feel sorry for me.
I have been offered a lot of cockatiels for free.I've been offered a
few others as well. Since it's not what I'm looking for I had to
By the way my animals are treated very well.And when my bird was
alive he was the happiest little bird. He had a huge cage(that he
was hardly in),food,treats,toys,etc... He never went without.
I have no clue how you got any where in my message where it said I
couldn't afford to pay for a cockatiel or that I didn't take good
care of my bird.
Everywhere get a life your a rude person.WHo doesn't seem to be able
to read whats written.
I'm done with this,You know what think what you will of me.I don't
