Thomas (Blue Fronted Amazon) – S32

Name: Thomas

Species: Blue Fronted Amazon

Reference No: S32

Summary: Hello my name is Thomas and I’m a blue fronted Amazon. I’m over 30 and can be a bit of a grumpy old man, but I appear to be healthy, in fine feather, and still coming out with phrases that my Safehouse Mum hasn’t heard before…I don’t swear either!

Description:
I’m quite quiet for an Amazon, but will have a shout if I can hear people having a good time (especially mealtimes) as I like to be included. I’m actually a sociable bird, but I don’t like to be touched, although I will accept a head rub when I’ve got to know you. I don’t like hands and arms and won’t step up, but safehouse Mum and I have worked out ways around this. I am getting more and more adventurous, but although I try to fly, I can’t gain height and need assistance back to my cage. Men are OK, but I’d prefer a woman as primary carer. I’m ok to be left for periods, and dogs are OK. I like children to sing and dance with me, but they must understand they shouldn’t touch me. I’ll share your attention with a dog, but not with another bird. Safehouse Mum has bought me a cage, which she says can come with me because she thinks the cage shape is the one that’s best for me, and my tray (which I play on and feed from). I think I would be happiest with experienced and confident fosterers who will continue to work with me, because although I’ve come on really well, I think I could come further still. A home without young children would probably be best though as I am still unpredictable sometime.

Comes with cage? Yes
