David K. relates,
In search of your wisdom
I have a Red Front macaw from an inheritance and his companion was a cat killed by my fault.
What other macaws would be a good fit for him?
Thank you for your help, David
Dear David, You have a Red Front Macaw but it was friends with a cat that is now deceased?
We need more details before we can make any recommendations.
- How old is the bird?
- How long have you had it?
- Did it come with the cat?
- Do you have other birds?
- What is the cage size?
- Can you send us pictures of it?
- Why are you looking for another companion instead of yourself for the bird?
- Is the bird tame?
- Does it have a safe cage to live in?
- Please a more detailed story can be helpful.
If you are looking for a companion for the bird I would recommend that you contact a local bird club or bird rescue and see if they have any older birds in that size range that may also be in a similar situation.
No, his companion was a blue & gold macaw and a feral cat got her and killed her.
The red front is about 15 to 20 years old.
Lives in a house with me and 3 pugs.
Now you see why I have been a long-time lurker because I am a barely functioning illiterate.
Yes, I have fixed where the cat got into the garage where the cage was, and yes I have a nice big cage all I want to know from you guys, what type of macaw would be compatible with my macaw.
A military macaw maybe something about his size and female?
I think no breeding intended, will find on my own if I can thank you, David
Don’t worry about your words. You made it clear when I asked you to clarify.
You said the bird that had been killed was a Blue & Gold macaw. So your bird is used to a larger macaw. Perhaps you will locate another lonely Blue & Gold.
However, I am concerned about the cage being in the garage. It is not a good life for a parrot, even if they have a buddy. Have you considered rehoming the remaining parrot?
Thank you for your help sorry to be a pain in the butt. I took too much of your time and the loss of my girl was my fault and still miss her. Birds will be in-house now.
Good to hear, let me know how it goes.
