Hi, I`m Tobias! I came to Mickaboo in March 2020 via the Santa Cruz shelter after being rescued from the claws of a cat. I am safe and happier now at a foster home! I`m a mellow budgie and I very much enjoy hanging out with my other foster friends. I like to fly around the room and hang out on top of my cage. I`m a smart boy and know how to get myself back in. I like to hog the food dish and I eat Nutrian cakes and I`ll nibble on spinach, but I could work on learning to snack on other foods. I`m skittish around humans and don`t like hands or phones! But if you bring me home to your flock, I`ll settle in happy with new friends and sing a little song for you! I`m currently foster friends with Paris if you`d like to bring us both home!
In nature, parakeets (budgerigars) live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single parakeet to a household if there is already at least one parakeet living there. Otherwise, parakeets must be adopted in groups of two or more.
