I have finally found a new home for our cockatiel. Two years ago I was done with her. No one else was caring for her and I just couldn't do it. But husband and Jessie and Wiz were so upset that I backed down. I also only had 3 people interested and one was not ready for a pet and the other 2 were hoarders as per our humane society. Goldi is a cockatiel and she bites. She and Freckles (our cat) were bffs. They slept together, right up against the cage bars. When Freckles died Goldi just seemed to stay depressed. It has gotten worse lately. So I posted on Freecycle because our group is quite cohesive and caring. I had lots of replies and one family sounded right. I had Jessie read teh responses and she said the same thing, though I hadn't told her which one I was thinking of. They are a retired couple raising a grandson. They have cats (a must for a new home for goldi) who are older and not hunters. They lost a bird a year ago. It also bit, so they knew what they were getting. They sound really lovely. It is a huge weight off of my shoulders. I am sending the cage, toys, everything. Just another development in our home. thank you is out of town with my mom. I will tell Wiz tomorrow and thank you when he gets home. They are waiting until Tues to get Goldi, so that thank you can say goodbye. They even said they would let the kids come see her if tehy wanted.
