Rocky's Story

Breed: Moluccan Cockatoo

Gender: Male

Hi! My name is Rocky and I'm a big Moluccan Cockatoo.

I've had a bit of a rough life. I had a mom who loved me very much, but she passed away. Her sister tried to care for me, but I got overly excited and bit her and then she put me into a small room and never let me out of my cage. I don't like to dwell on this time in my life though, so let's focus on my current life.

I really enjoy life at the Refuge. I have quite a few human friends and they give me really good head rubs. I'll sit still for hours if you give me head rubs. I especially like women and am quite a flirt. I'm a big talker and while I sometimes talk too fast for people to understand me, I always know what I'm saying. I absolutely love big boxes to play in. They provide me with a sense of security as well as a fun chewing opportunity.

About a year ago, I had the opportunity to be fostered by one of my favorite volunteers. While her life didn't lend itself towards adopting a Moluccan Cockatoo, I sure had lots of fun with her while I stayed at her house. I also surprised her, and everyone else, by proving that I can actually fly. What can I say? I'm full of surprises!

Do you think you'd like to get to know me? If so, please contact the Refuge to learn more. Thanks for stopping by!
