I have a 20+ year old male Cockatoo who was originally wild caught in Australia way back when. We are his 3+ home and he has a mate. When he arrived here last year his previous person would never touch him and would basically herd him with a stick when she wanted to move him about. He was bitey and very timid. Today he comes to me faster than the female does (and she is very affectionate), he lets me pet him all over and he is easy to catch when he is out of his cage. We are so thrilled that we could turn this little guy around and that he seems so happy.
The point of my tale is to say that I believe it is never too late to make a positive change in someones life and in their relationship to you. Good Luck!
Love Them & Lead Them,
