 Tinkerbell's (not so) excellent adventure

PostSubject: Tinkerbell's (not so) excellent adventure    Wed Aug 03, 2011 6:08 pm

My cockatiel got out the door last Thursday. I keep her cage open all day long so she can go in and out as she pleases. I had opened the kitchen door just wide enough for me to slip out to pick up my newspaper. In that instant she flew out the door and took off above the treetops, never stopping to roost anywhere.

In shock, I began canvassing the neighborhood, whistling for her. I put her cage out in the yard with the door open, hoping she'd see it and come back for food. I called the local radio station, all the vets' offices, and our Humane Society, and put an ad in the newpaper. The next morning I awoke to the sounds of thunder and pouring rain. I ran out to the yard and found her cage still empty and now filling with water. I hoped that she had taken cover somewhere. For three days I cried until my eyes burned. I thought of her out there, confused and frightened, wondering where I was. Nights were horrible. I wondered where she was sleeping.

On Sunday I got a phone call from a gentleman who lives 4 miles away from me. He had found Tinkerbell sitting, exhausted, on his front lawn. He put his hand down and she immediately stepped onto it. When he called me, she was sitting on his shoulder. I could hear her chirping. I rushed over to pick her up. I whistled to her, and she whistled back very weakly. She had lost a considerable amount of weight and is missing some feathers from her crest and the top of her head, but was otherwise OK. She did nothing but eat and sleep for two days after I brought her back home.

Tinkerbell is beginning to put on weight and regain her strength. The highlight of my day now is when I uncover her cage in the morning and see her sweet yellow face. I look upon it as a miracle that she was found and returned to me! I've learned a lesson (the hard way) about opening the door while she's out of the cage.

A friend suggested that I rename her "Freebird," LOL.

Oh my goodness, Ginger, thank God shes okay! I'm so glad she found her way to someone that could help her get back home. What a blessing!

The odds were tremendously against Tinkerbell being found and returned to me. I know how very I lucky I was to get her back before she succumbed to starvation or dehydration or fell prey to a predator. I now have a sign on my door to remind me to put her in her cage before I open the door, even for a second!
