Fred seems to be adjusting quite well. She's enjoyed some time outside and a shower. I think it's been quite a while for either of those. She's eating and very busy exploring her new cage and trying to ignore the Great Danes that are fascinated with her!

Yay! Got my first Fred "cuddle" today. smile She's doing well and has been coming out for me, but hasn't acted real sure until this morning. I was really curious yesterday morning what her reaction would be when I got home from work (it was the first time I'd left her) and she seemed relieved and happy to see me. Andie usually decides when I've slept enough and starts hollering Mom and Hello, so imagine my surprise when Fred "vocalized" for the first time! She's feeling more at ease and seems to be enjoying her outside time and showers (I have a mister above them) although I haven't put her in her "official" outdoor cage... I've just been rolling her sleep cage out. Didn't want her to have to get used to too much at once! LOL She'll get to be out today for most of the day as I'm off.

She's enjoying a banana nut muffin and fresh fruit this morning for breakfast. I love the way she lets me know what she doesn't want to eat... drops it in her water bowl with a total look of disdain! (She wasn't big on broccoli or beans - gonna have to mash 'em up for her!)

What a wonderful update Julie! We'd love to see some pictures.

We only allow links to pictures here, so the best way is to create a free account at a site like Photobucket and then link to the pictures you upload.

It's pretty intuitive once you get in there!

Fred is just adorable, my favorite picture is the one outside with her looking at the camera. She looks to be settling really well, I wish a long and happy life for you together.

Looks like Fred has landed in a wonderful home. She looks so happy and I'm sure she is going to keep settling in and getting comfortable very quickly. She looks like a spoiled little pumpkin with you! Congratulations

She is definitely quite the spoiled little girl (as are all my kids!) She enjoyed peanut butter wheat toast for breakfast this morning, and I was half expecting her to ask for a glass of milk!

I just wanted to mention that Julie was willing to take a leap of faith and adopt this girl sight unseen. I was contacted by the son of Fred's deceased owner and he begged me to take Fred. Unfortunately, but not unusual, we have more cockatoos than we can handle now. I asked Julie if she would be willing to adopt Fred, if we arranged for bloodwork (so she wasn't putting her other kids at jeapardy) and she said yes with no hesitation.

This is a very special lady. Fred is very lucky to be joining such a happy and functional flock.

Jacque, thanks for the kind words. Really looking forward to this week off to do a lot of bonding with Fred... and of course dote on the rest of the group! Feathered and 4-legged! smile

I honestly felt so honored that you even considered me for Fred! You've helped me so much with my kids and it's all appreciated...
