Finnegan was a neighborhood feral cat that I rescued. Thanks Lynne for teaching me TNR!! He was believed to be about 8 months old. I had him neutered and vaccinated, and worked on his socialization for a few weeks. He was very playful and active, and wanted out of the bedroom that he had to be isolated in as I have a house full of dogs. I could tell that Finnegan was lonely and needed another cat to play with. I was very fortunate to find a wonderful woman to adopt him who was willing to continue to work on his socialization. She also had two gentle and well-mannered cats. Special Thanks to Judy for adopting our boy! And special thanks to her cats Sterling and Maurice who welcomed Finnegan into their home.
My neighbor flagged me down when I was returning home from work one evening. A Goffin Cockatoo dropped from the sky and landed on his back when he was in the yard! Needless to say he was a bit freaked out when he felt the nails sticking into him, not knowing what it was. The bird then flew to the ground and he was able to confine him. I made a large cage for him out of a dog pen and a piece of lattice, which I placed on my kitchen table so that he could get plenty of attention. Once he was settled in I realized that he needed a name. I called him "Little Frank" in honor of his rescuer!
Little Frank turned out to be very well socialized. He quickly learned to fly to my shoulder, where he spent most of his time when I was home. He also loved to be pet.
The next step was to try to find the owner. I posted adds on Craigs List and contacted a parrot rescue. After about a week I was alerted to a flyer on a telephone poll a few blocks away. I had been looking for signs but not in that particular neighborhood. I contacted the owner who was very relieved that her bird was found. It was a happy reunion for Bertha and her Cockatoo, whose name is Minnie.
