Thank you so much for sharing Ziggy's story with us. Ziggy's motto seems to be "there is always someone worse off than me" (which is an attitude I try to apply to most of the crappy things that have happened in life)
I am so glad you two have each other, I am happy at the bond and love you share. I know whatever happens, Ziggy will be cared for by you in the best possible way. Please dont blame yourself for what happened. Unfortunately, sometimes we dont realise what could happen till its too late. I bet now that you have posted Ziggys story, those with cages similar will go and adapt them so this doesnt happen to their birds. See, Ziggy still doing things for others - bless Ziggy, you little sweetheart. I know he would not do well if he was in the wild but he is where he is meant to be and will be well cared for, I am positive you will make sure of that.
PS, thanks for the tears. Ziggy is so inspirational. It is amazing how they cope with "special" needs.

Ziggy is completely back to his former self, getting into as much trouble as he can. I don't know whether I was being overly cautious with him, or whether he was a bit tentative at first, with his new beak configuration, or some combination of the two, but a couple of weeks ago I realized that he was getting into just as much mischief as before his accident, and it was only then that I realized that he had been unusually *good* for a few months. A subtle difference, but noticeable in hindsight.

Thank you all, for your support during this time. Ziggy and I have appreciated more than you can ever know.

So, after the amputation, I made a big deal of whenever Ziggy used his beak on me, because it seemed to me that it was important to his self esteem for him to know that he still had the capacity to hurt me. :o:

Well, I no longer have to make a big deal about it - he has figured out just exactly how to dig that upper beak into my throat, breast or inner wrist to inflict maximum pain without physical damage. :eek: Then he kisses the spot, and peers at me sideways with a look that says, "Oh, did someone hurt you?! See, I've kissed it and made it all better. I'm sweet that way."

What can I say - we have a sick and twisted relationship. :cool:

I'm so glad he's doing so well. I missed the earlier update & was wondering how he was getting along. So glad he can still inflict pain :hehe: thats important to a bird. At least he's a gentlemen about it.
