Proactive Tips

Here are a few proactive tips for you, in case you lose your bird:

If you haven't done so:

1. Make a note and even take photos of your birds identification leg ring/band. If your bird is micro-chipped, ensure the details are up to date.

2. Take mug shots of your birds from all angles, also, include any unique markings and any bodily defects.

3. Record your bird on your cell/mobile phone making sounds, as bird calls they are familiar with, should get them responding if nearby when played.

Ping'ing for Pets!

We often get asked about the possibility of extending parrotalert.com for all pets, but parrot alert is for parrots and would confuse people if we allowed other pets on our site.

As we need to redevelop parrotalert.com so it's available and optimised for phone, tablet and desktop. We've decided to embark on a new project for all pets, called PingPets.com, which will also power parrotalert.com.

We searched high and low for short meaningful names, the ones we wanted, weren't available or unrealistically priced, so we thought, we're often ping'ing out alerts in the hope of reaching people and getting a response and birds are too niche and we need to reach more pet people, so why not provide a service for all.

Ping is used on sonar for echo location and it's even a little utility on your computer for checking to see if a computer is responding, so we thought ping pets makes more sense, after all, we are "ping'ing" out alerts.

If you are reading this, this is where we need you, yes you!.. don't look behind you, we mean you. In order to start our project, we thought we'd use a tool to gauge interest.. a facebook fans page.. so we've created a facebook like page @ www.facebook.com/PingPets and all we need is 1000 facebook page likes and we'll start development of our project. So share with all of your pet friends. More info can also be found @ www.pingpets.com

How Prepared Are You?

In recent light of hurricane sandy that hit North America.

How prepared are you if the event arose of evacuating your pet(s)?. Have you thought about contingency plans for evacuation, for storms, fires, gas explosions or any event which forces you at a moments notice to evacuate your pets. Do you have travel (temporary home) cages, basic pet medical kits and food packs handy for your flock and other pets. If so, how accessible and have you checked their condition etc. Something we often not think about and should be prepared to handle.

It's the difference of being proactive v's reactive, and could also be the difference of life or death for our pet friends.

Food for thought...

Never give up the hope of finding your lost parrot / bird

I am writing to parrotalert with my news about Georgie in the hope that it will encourage fellow bird lovers who have lost their beloved pet, to never lose hope that they too might find their bird.

Georgie flew out of our open door during our house move on 12th June 2009. For the next two weeks I and various members of my family, trudged our local streets at dawn and at dusk calling her name, and knocking on doors surrounding the immediate area where we heard her responses. Although we moved house 6 or 7 miles away, we occasionally returned, still calling out her name and on occasion, still hearing her familiar shriek. Many residents told us they regularly feed the wild birds, and as their gardens contained numerous evergreen trees and bushes, I was confident that she would survive even that last terrible winter. A number of the gardens were inaccessible due to their very private occupiers.

September of this year 2010, my daughter drove me over to he area when I heard mechanical diggers in one of those "private" gardens. I remarked "Oh no, if Georgie HAS nested in there then the machines will have spooked her and she will move on/away."

Around 4 weeks later, Oct. 22nd my husband and I hand delivered a number of letters in the surrounding homes (again!) reminding the residents about Georgie and my contact details. Tuesday evening 26th one of them rang to say she had been at the local Vet on the previous Thursday, heard a bird chirping away and was told it was a cockatiel that had been found on the road just two streets away from those gardens and that they had her for 3 weeks.

The lady had gone away for the weekend and did not read my letter until that following Tuesday when she rang me.

When my husband and I went to the Vets clinic we were told the bird had been re-homed just a couple of days before, to a friend of the vets nurse who was very objectionable about allowing us the opportunity to see if it was indeed OUR bird.

After we wrote to her boss the senior Vet, HE arranged for the bird to return to his clinic where we positively identified her as our Georgie and subsequently brought her home on Friday 5th November 2010.

16 months and 3 weeks living rough had taken it's toll on her feathers and general condition, but after initial care at the Vets clinic and further attention with mite spray, conditioning medication in her drinking water, and lashings of TLC from us, she is recovering well and making herself heard again. She's forgotten much that we had taught her, but remembered some things/tunes/articles.

The vet confirmed that SHE is actually a HE, but I hope Georgie's story will inspire others to continue their search and never give up hope.

Kind regards

Ms. Frances Courtney (UK) and family, and of course Georgie!
