I am looking for a new forever home for my beautiful and beloved 11 year old African Grey, Lola, and this forum came highly recommended. I have had Lola since she was 4 months old, she is a real character, loves to talk and sing, loves music and has a wicked sense of humour, albeit a little stubborn sometimes! My partner works away at sea so is not around most of the time and his work is due to take us abroad for the foreseeable future from early/mid next year whereby I will then be full time and travelling for work too. After much discussion, in depth talks with other parrot owners, vet etc, and a lot of soul searching over the past few months, I have come to the tough decision to secure her a new forever home. This is a circumstance I never thought I'd find myself in, but, ultimately for me, her wellbeing and happiness has to come first. Whilst Greys are adaptable, being constantly moved around, spending more time on her own and travelling abroad is just not for her knowing her as well as I do. She ideally needs to be the only parrot, or certainly with only one other Grey or bird. She likes children but at a distance, she is handable and well socialised although can be a little snappy occasionally (more often than not when she can’t get her own way!), and due to occasional seizures, ideally with someone experienced in having Greys. Other than the 3 seizures she has had over her lifetime (cause unknown and no medication required), she is fit and well, has a healthy appetite and loves eating with us, great at bedtimes with her blankie, enjoys time in and out of her cage, and generally loves being the centre of attention! I won't no payment, just the knowledge that she will be safe and well cared for with stability and plenty of time, affection and love. She has a large cage, travel cage and lots of accessories etc. I have paperwork for her since her hatch day, and able to get any other paperwork sorted as needed e.g. Cites. We are currently based in South Wales so anyone near to there would be ideal, but would consider further afield if it means Lola having the best possible forever home she can have. If anyone knows of a suitable home, please do get in touch, any advice on the rehoming process also welcome. Thank you all in advance for your help!
