Kakadoo, lovingly referred to as "Kak" is a 20 year old Goffin’s cockatoo that we rescued from almost certain death on Christmas Eve. Tragically, Kak’s caregiver of 20 years had passed away in their home and her husband had been transported to the hospital by ambulance and passed away several days later. Both people died from COVID-19. Kak had already gone without any food or water for 2 days when we were contacted.
Little Kak is settling in and is doing as well as can be expected considering all he has been through. Kak, alone and confused, survived in his dark covered sleep cage without anything to eat or drink for at least 2 days. While this was a devastating tragedy for his human family, and for Kak as well, it was also a Christmas miracle for this special little bird. 💗
Kak is one very smart little bird who is already learning to forage. He forages for his favorite treats which include pistachio nuts, almonds in shell, and sunflower seeds.
Favorite foods: cucumbers, blueberries, and bananas
