Meet Petie

Hello! My name is Petie, and I am a 24-year-old male gray cockatiel. I am looking for a home to spend my golden years!

The first thing you should know about me is that I am almost completely blind. I can only see dim shadows out of one side. While my arthritis keeps me from climbing much in my enclosure, I get around just fine on ground floor perches and platforms. I don't really like to be touched, but I am easy to care for. I still enjoy the finer things in life, like a fresh sprig of millet, whistling or singing a little bit each day, and daytime television like Hawaii 5-0.

The vet says in my old age I am allowed to eat whatever I want! I eat a mixed seed diet and that's not going to change. I love munching on a millet and there a few toys in my cage I like to chew on. Other forms of enrichment are scary for me, since I can't see well. I don't mind the sounds of the other birds that share the house, but I tend to sing more when there is less commotion. My foster mom thinks I would do very well in a quiet home where I can be loved and cared for.

Petie would love a "Welcome to Foster" gift. You can view his wishlist here:
