…is a 50 year old macaw who once belonged to his ex-girlfriend’s mother. How does that happen?
Check out the story from the Lansing State Journal.
I guess we parrot folks are always on the lookout for the right home for our birds for if something happens to us. Ruth, the macaw’s owner knew when Jeff LaFlamme and Skipper met in the 1970s that it was a perfect match. What I would really be interested to know is what happened in the years in between…Ruth passed away in 1989. In small ways Jeff is living with his ex-girlfriend (he’s single) and her mother for the rest of Skipper’s life. He seems to be quite happy with it though and enjoying Skipper’s company immensely.
Although my mom is the obvious choice for my African grey, I have to admit that I have an ex-boyfriend in mind for Ty if anything ever happens to me. And two friends were decided upon years ago for my Senegal and red-bellied. It is more about what the birds told me than anything else.
Do you know who your parrots want to live with if something happens to you?
