Thank you ❤ It's good to see some familiar faces. It's taken a while to get to the point where I was willing to adopt another rehome. A.J.'s a sweet guy, shy, a bit bigger than Chloe.
Aw I can completely understand that especially considering that RFs have your heart and how special they are to you. Its hard to take that chance on an unknown rehome. He looks like he has a sweet face for sure.

Hello all,
Just stopping by to introduce my newest addition: A.J. He's been here since August, but he's just now getting acclimated and really starting to relax a bit. He and Chloe are still not quite sure about each other.

He is stunning!

It is wonderful to hear from you again, and I hope that you are well!

Thank you! According to his previous owner, he was a handfed baby.

Chloe is never caged. And, yes, she interacts, all right. But, although she opens his cage door everyday, he never ventures out.

Chloe is 7 years old. A.J. is 6, according to his previous owner.

She opens it herself? Oh my goodness that's so sweet that she wants to encourage him to come out.

Oh yes, she tries to let everyone out! I have locks on the Illigers' cage. But, I would actually love it if A.J. would join her in freedom. So far, no dice. He prefers to stay in his safe space.

Bless his heart. I'm sure with her gentle encouragement that eventually he will be willing to take that first big step.

try feel out previous owner on his environment. let him go at his own pace as you are doing. sure just the interaction between bars is entertaining to Chloe though. he shows an interest in her? great work.;)
