I don’t even know how to say this but I need help.
In 2013 I obtained a Blue and Gold Macaw that I named Frodo. His previous owner could no longer care for him and he was extremely aggressive and underweight. It took a few weeks but he finally warmed up to me and started to let me hold him and pet him and by 6 months he was a total sweetheart. I loved him dearly but I made myself adopt him out like I had promised myself.
Yesterday, I got a call from his new owner saying he wasn’t eating and plucking feathers pretty badly even after months of being with her. She said in three weeks shes going to post him on craigslist for 600$ but is giving me first rights. Where I will most likely never see him again.
I am absolutely terrified. This bird was my baby and I can’t imagine him being in harms way. Theres no way I can come up with an extra 600 dollars to bring my baby home, Im in college and money is really tight. My mom has offered to help pay but shes not really in the position to drop that money right now either. We can afford his general care and my mom works at a vets office where he can get free medical care anytime . Its just the jump of 600$ to get him back in the first place. The semester just started and im broke. I need help please. I hate asking for money but I cant imagine him being gone forever.
If I take him back, it will be a permanent home for him. Hes only 6 years old and is going through his terrible twos which his owner wasn’t prepped for I guess. She as been really nice to us and has been in contanct so many times. Please help me get my tickle buddy back .
here are some pictures from when we owned him. And I have a video on my go fund me of him and his obsession with hair!
Anything you can give helps, even if its just a reblog. Please help me, I dont know what to do for him.
