Sponsor Sammi

Sammi needs a sponsor!

This is Sammi now. She no longer mutilates now that Parrots First has restored some of her trust in humans.

Sammi needs a sponsor!

Sammi came to Parrots First in 2007 mutilating her chest and feather picking. Her former owners tried to have her euthanized because they couldn’t sell her on Craigslist.

All About Sammi
Sammi is an approximately 16-year-old Goffin’s Cockatoo. Sammi has been with Parrots First since 2007 and was relinquished after her previous owners (who were divorcing) asked their vet to euthanize Sammi, because no one purchased her on Craig’s List. Thankfully, the veterinarian refused.

Sammi came to Parrots First mutilating her chest and picking her feathers. She has poor balance, because she scissors off her tail and wings. She has some neurological damage due to what Parrots First’s veterinarian feels was a bad fall or a hit on the head

However, Sammi has the cutest, smurfy voice. She asks, “What you doin?” and often proclaims, “Sammi do it!” when she gets excited. She loves to sing and cuddle and is much better now. Sammi no longer mutilates but does scare easily.

Why Sponsor Sammi?
Sammi needs frequent vet visits for her on again off again mutilating problem. She also needs special caging, because she has severe balance problems. We are working with Sammi on fear issues, because she is afraid to put her head into a food bowl.

Sammi’s Favorite Things
Sammi’s favorite things are singing out, “What you doin?” and having her head rubbed. She is also addicted to Birdy Bagel toys. Sammie spends time outside in good weather and loves to talk with the outdoor birds.
