Title: Leon The Rescue Amazon, see his story under Rescue
Post by Pam and Leon on Nov 5th, 2012, 6:15pm

Today my sweet little parrot Leon passed away.
To Leon:
Humans have not been very kind to you little sole, first you were captured wild in Mexcio, maybe taken from your family and shipped to the US. From there you came to Canada and was used for breeding, kept in darkened rooms with not toys. Then you went to a place where humans were even worse to you, keeping you in a dark shed with your mate who plucked the feathers from your body, no toys, little light and a terrible cage to live in. One day another pair of breeding birds escaped their cage and your mate was killed in front of you. You lived there for many years before you were rescued by Joe and taken to his home to recover. When I first saw pictures of you my heart broke, you looked so sad and depressed. I never ever thought that you would come to live with me.

After another terrible 2 years at a place where Joe thought you would be safe, but was not, my friend found you and took you to her house. But you were so scared of all her big birds it was then that you came to me. I only hope, little sole that your time with me was maybe your best time with a human. You had a cage that the door was never closed, you sat many hours on top in the sunshine, you were by yourself and I think felt safe that way and had plenty of wood to chew on, your favorite thing to do. You went outdoors in the warm weather and seemed to really like that. I will never forget the first day that I hooked your outdoor cage to a big branch of a tree and you swung in the breeze, your wings stretched out, maybe that was the closes that you had ever been to being back in the wild. Fly free little sole, fly free, humans will never hurt you again and I will miss you very very much.

So sorry for your loss Pam. Thank you for taking care of him and giving him a loving home. I can tell he was very cherished from your posts. Take solace knowing his last years were good ones.
