Hello, my name is Sammy. I’m a beautiful Timneh Grey and I’m told I am around 40 years old but I act more like I’m 10. The only problem is when I came to my new home I was already poorly. My mum and dad and Mr Vet have tried a lot to help me but they are all a bit confused as to what is wrong and how to help me. It would seem I am as much a mystery as I am beautiful.
You see, something is wrong with my belly. I have very bad and very smelly poos and my humans tell me that’s not normal for a parrot. I have had so so many tests and Mr vet is struggling to find out exactly what’s making me poorly. But I know I’m going to have to see him a few more times yet because like I say, I’m a mystery.
So far they have made me sleepy with medicine and done something to me twice already. I have been on 4 rounds of medication which wasn’t too bad actually because mum and dad have made medication a big game that I like playing now even though it doesn’t taste too good. I’m told Mr vet has also done 4 different tests on my poo and I’ve also had this one time they poked me with a needle to test my blood. I’m going to need some more tests and my treatment is ongoing.
Because of how much money it costs to do these things, I’d like to ask you that if you can help in any way, maybe you would like to donate towards my vet treatments so I can be fixed and my belly stops hurting. Thank you for reading my story, Sammy.
