"I'm excited because I'm getting a 15-year old Umbrella Cockatoo this week. For most of her life, she'd been abused by her female owner, and as a result she doesn't like female Humans. I've been visiting her at the Pet Store a couple times a week over the last month, and she seems to be warming up to me more each week. The noise of the pet store (mostly puppies yipping) seems to wear her down. I want to give her an environment where she can be comfortable. She's a sensitive girl who has seemed depressed; sometimes when I've arrived at the pet shop, she's on the floor of her cage with her head in the corner, and it breaks my heart to see her that way. But the last time I was there, she climbed my onto my hand and was playing; her crest was fully extended as she was gently hitting the palm of my hand. I have two main questions...(1) Many afternoons I'm away from the house, so I hope that my being with her in the mornings and checking in at night will be enough for her. Will it be? (2) Is there a chance someday she'd be comfortable with Women? I don't have anyone special but who knows what will happen in life. But I want my house to be a sanctuary for this bird. I want her to be happy. Her name is "Sweet Pea" and if she can live up to her name even Half the time, I'll be happy. "
