Other comments: I am one of the Lake Oswego Four and am the only one who has not found her forever home. According to my foster moms this is simply because the right home has not found me yet. I am the sweetest and most fun Goffins. I am very petite and dainty and so pretty if I do say so myself. My eyes will just melt your heart.


I love to show affection to my human by either rubbing all over them, preening their hair or snuggling into their chest. I will make the cutest little noise when I want to be with you but am not overly loud or obnoxious. I don’t talk but am not a screamer either.


I love my fresh fruits, veggies, and mash and  am a very good eater. I especially like sharing dinner with my person which is a great time for bonding. Dancing is another favorite activity I like to do with my person so turn on the music and let’s get down.


I am just starting to like toys and paper shred toys are what I like best. I like to take a piece off and use it to play my funny Goffins game. I put it in my feathers and shake it off trying to catch it in my beak or drop it from my foot over my head and try to catch it in my beak. The other Goffins in my foster home play the same game so it must be a Goffins thing. In any case it is very entertaining to watch.


I take showers with my foster mom and don’t seem to hate it. I am very cute when I am wet. Bathing me will be very important because I tend to over barber my feathers.


I have an open door policy in my foster home except when I go to bed. I am not a traveler and enjoy spend most of my days playing on top of my cage. I also am not overly destructive but it doesn’t’ mean I can’t and won’t..just that I haven’t done it to date.  At night I like to have my cage covered or I get night terrors and call out  for you.


If you want a companion that will sit in the recliner cuddling while you watch movies…I am your girl. Come meet me and let’s see if we make a connection.
