have only had Jake for nine weeks. He was rescued, along with another
Cockatoo and his friend Spud, the Senegal. They were all being kept in
terrible conditions and were being physically mistreated and neglected.
Sadly the other Cockatoo was so mentally affected he had to be put to
sleep. however, Jake and Spud were given a clean bill of health at the
vets and started their new life with us shortly after. Spud is just
"boarding" with us until he can find himself a new wife. Jake
however, is here permanently.
Jake is a male and thought to be about five years old. At first he was
very nervous and it took me a couple of weeks before he would
happily let me stroke him. Once he let me do than though, his confidence
has grown quickly and now he gives and receives kisses, is trying to
talk, is just beginning to gain his strength and will try to fly to me -
usually ends up on the floor but the he climbs up my trousers to reach
me!! He is an absolute delight and though noisy at times, he is
generally gorgeous. Jake, Spud and the rest of the family - i.e. Barney
the Conure, Spike the Cockatiel, Archie the Eclectus, Simba the GSP -
God Spare Parts - Pedigree Mongrel, Toby the Cocker Spaniel and the Koi
Carp - oh, and the Humans, all live in Leicestershire in the United
