It's been less than a year since I took my Sun Conure 'Cheeto' to FEBS. When I made the decision to place her with FEBS I was devastated because I worried she wouldn't be happy--that she would miss me and couldn't possibly live without me. BOY WAS I WRONG! Cheeto is now in a LARGE flight cage with other conures and is doing GREAT! I went to visit her last weekend and she remembered me, gave me kisses, and sat on my shoulder. It was bittersweet but I will never regret placing her at FEBS. Patricia and her staff are truly amazing, they go out of their way to keep you updated on your bird and do everything they can to get other birds sponsored. I'm just happy that Cheeto and all the other lucky birds at FEBS can just be birds.

I placed my Sun Conure, Cheeto, with FEBS just this morning. While I am heartbroken that I will no longer have her in my daily life, I am thrilled to have found such an amazing place for her. I 'owned' Cheeto for nearly 3 years and she was so irrevocably bonded to me that she would have nothing to do with anyone else. If she was not perched on my shoulder at all times she was screaming and calling out for me. Needless to say this caused problems during the work week and I ended up realizing that my keeping her was selfish. She deserves the kind of care and life she will be getting with FEBS--a life I could never have provided for her. Thank GOD for FEBS! I am so happy to have found FEBS and Patricia.
