Sunday after Sunday after Sunday I read your incredibly knowledgeable and helpful newsletter
I always learn.
I appreciate so much the time you take to share your wisdom and experiences.
I am a dog person, but for the last 3 years I have had in my home a 10-12-year-old Cockatoo – forgotten about by her owner’s family when the owner committed suicide.
She was located at her grooming salon.
When I walked in and found her, she had been alone close to 3 weeks. She had a tiny bit of very polluted water, 3 or 4 seeds, (literally!), and had been shut in a too small cage all that time.
Additionally, the back door was standing open so the cats who stayed at the grooming salon could go in and out. The weather was in the ’40s and ’50s.
