Adopted on 2021-10-02
Hi, I`m Penelope! I came to Mickaboo in March, 2021 via the San Jose shelter. I went straight to the vet, was treated for Avian Gastric Yeast, and was released to a foster home yesterday. I am a lovely light blue girl with lavender marks on my white "whiskers." I step up and I am friendly. Wouldn`t I be a good fit for YOUR forever home?

In nature, parakeets (budgerigars) live in large flocks. A single bird in a cage spends much of his/her life being lonely because humans have things they must do that take them away. We therefore will only adopt a single parakeet to a household if there is already at least one parakeet living there. Otherwise, parakeets must be adopted in groups of two or more.
