I wanted to adopt this beautiful double yellow magna amazon parrot named Soleil that I found on petfinder.com Unfortunately, the organization's foster host thwarted every effort I made to visit the bird.
The bird is kept in a dark, cramped computer room with various other birds including a Macaw. They have no source of sunlight and their primarily source of light comes from the radioactive glare of a computer screen.
Below, is the account of the events that took place:
1. 4/3/10 - Appointment made to visit Soleil on 4/4/10. Voicemail and E-mail response to request for address disregarded.
2. 4/410 - Cancellation
3. 4/10/10 - 1 hour Visit arranged. Agreement to visit Soleil on 4/17 made, to which, I was later blamed by the host for his lost business opportunity.
4. 4/15/10 - Called to confirm 4/17 visit. Left voicemail. Call was returned merely to verify my identity.
5. 4/17/10 - Last minute cancellation
6. 4/18/10: 1st request to Foster Host, Maurice, that I would like to see the bird for a 2nd visit on Saturday afternoon or any time Sunday. To which, I was asked to resubmit my request on
