Day 6 – A photo of an animal you’d love to keep as a pet.

First off: these animals are NOT pets. They have been rescued. Nikki the Macaw had 8 homes in only a few short years, and horrible separation anxiety from it. Although macaws are SUPER loud, they have sooooo much personality, and I'd love to have one! Spencer the capuchin is actually the son of two capuchins rescued from experimentation. I know it's not right to have monkeys as pets, which means I never will, but Spencer is so cute and has a place in my heart!

My parents have a blue and gold macaw and a scarlet macaw!! The blue and gold they bought off Craig's List (from a home full of smokers!!) so she's not technically a rescue but I like to think of her life as much better now. The scarlet came from a rescue near their house called Wings Over the Rainbow. She was seized from an illegal breeding operation and put up for adoption. Then someone adopted her and tried to breed her again! She is terrified of male birds and pretty quiet, but she's sweet as can be and my parents love their birds to death! Check out their website, and their facebook page...word of warning some of the images of abused birds are pretty graphic!
