"I was very fortunate to have a blue and gold macaw at one time. Her name was Jammie and she was my world. I was fortunate enough to live across the street from a man who raised macaws and was responsible for training Officer Bird. I worked for a vet who was an avian vet and had acquired my first macaw who was very very deformed and was not expected to live more than 2 months. He was given to me and named Mikey due to the fact he loved food...."give it to Mikey, he'll eat anything" Mikey live to a ripe old age of 11 months and he had a wonderful life. But I was crushed when he left me so I cried all the time and was very depressed. I started being drawn to the neighbor across the street due to the fact he raised macaws, amongst other birds. He started teaching m how to train them and how to deal with their behaviors. Very very much to my surprise, one day him and his wife called me into their livingroom and had a tiny 4 wk old baby and asked what I thought.....well, I was so happy to be able to play with a tiny baby. They then told me that she was mine....they were going to allow me to buy her. I told them I couldn't afford her but thank you. They told me that they would take $300 for her and payments of whatever I could afford. I was so shocked and thankful and agreed to pay them off as soon as possible. They allowed me to take her at that time. I was so scared for some reason after losing Mikey I was afraid I would do something wrong that would make her die. I kept her in a box on my bed next to me and for the first 2 weeks I think she hated me or so it seemed. We came to finally love each other and what a relationship that was. She and I would talk to each other all the time and every night when I got home from work we would have an hour of playtime. That belonged to her....always. Times got rough and I had to have a "friend" watch her for me and while watching her....she decided to move and then make her number unlisted. I miss Jammie so much and would give anything to find her. I will never forget her ....."
