Update 4/23/11 Update on Shika! Shika has had another surgery called, "Lilopma debulking" which removed excess skin which hung down like, "saddlebags" She will be off of her thyroid meds in just a few days and she is ready for adoption ! Her last progress from her foster mom says this, "Shika is doing very well"she is a wonderful bird. She had her surgery and her stitches are healed. She still wears her collar at times because she still wants to preen too much. She eats well and loves carrots and zupreem. .and kisses . She is NOT a screamer. She loves looking out the window and she is not afraid of kids, dogs or other birds. She is a perfect umbrella cockatoo and will step up to anyone. Oh, and did I say she loves kisses? Lil Miss Shika here. I am such a VERY happy umbrella cockatoo girl now. Oh, my goodness! You can`t possibly imagine the horror I just lived through. I was rescued from the most disgusting place you could ever think of. The excrement in my cage was (and I am not eggagerating) SIX inches deep! Oh, ick! Now THAT was something to squack about don`t you think? I`ve had some surgeries for some prolapse issues and am now on meds and on the mend. I was extremely overweight so the flab literally hangs from my thighs. Everything thinks it was due to an extremely poor diet for many years. Ok, So I`m not so attractive on the outside- but I am a sweetheart on the inside. I really truly am. Looks aren`t everything you know. I`m a Mama`s girl at my foster home but like Dad too. I don`t necessarily have to be the only bird in my new home but I`d like, and need, lots of love and attention. Do you have a place in your home and your heart for a special needs lady like me? I hope so. I am working on getting healthy and strong so I can move soon. I hope it can be with someone just like you!~
