Adopted on 2020-08-14
Hi, I`m Louie. I was found and turned into the Santa Clara shelter. I`ve been moved to a foster home with Mickaboo since it`s so much nicer for me there than in that big, cold shelter! Not much is known about me yet so stay tuned for details!
In nature, parakeets (budgerigars) live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single parakeet to a household if there is already at least one parakeet living there. Otherwise, parakeets must be adopted in groups of two or more.
