Upset Right Now :( :(

Just got pointed out to me that Hermes is listed on Kijiji as of today.
I e-mailed the person asking if they got him a year or so ago and his name was originally Hermes. I also asked if they would give him back to me if that was the case and they were wanting to re-home him.

I am extremely upset right now... the lady I gave him to only gave me about $50 for him, his cage, and EVERYthing I had for him and she is now selling only Hermes for $120. T_T
She also had a few other birds and apparently is re-homing him because she is only keeping her smaller birds? He IS a smaller bird!

Gah, I am so angry!! I am really hoping she'll give him and his cage back to me, even if I have to pay for him.

Ok, went to check the ad again like 10 minutes after e-mailing the person and now the ad is gone!
They obviously knew they were doing something wrong and took it down since I haven't gotten a reply...
I think she was lying about downsizing her flock and just wanted his cage for one of her other birds. T_T

Aww that sucks!! You give a pet ( bird, dog, cat etc...) up cheap or free because you have found a great home for them... And the next thing you know they are being sold, flipped, thrown away! I hope you can get him back, I remember how hard it was and how upset you were when you rehomed him.
Hubby and I were just talking about ads on Kijiji last night... A less than 4 month old husky pup... Need him gone ASAP due to going to collage soon and won't have time for him.. Also appartment is to small for him... Looking for forever home... Wait a minute.. You only had him for like 3-4 weeks? You must of known how big your appartment was 3 weeks ago and that you would be leaving for school... Some people hold no value on other lives.
Anyhow good luck and let us know what happens.

Hi Kayla,
I'm sorry that such bad people got Hermes. What kind of bird is he?
You have good reason to be disappointed and angry.
This is really awful. You rehome your pet thinking you found a good home for him. But the people only want to make a good deal.
Do you think you have a chance to find him and get him back?

Thanks guys, this has really got me pretty upset.
Karin, he is a Cockatiel that I re-homed about a year ago.
The Lady had a few other small birds, I talked to her on the phone for about an hour and then her and her Husband came to meet Hermes before taking him home.
I doubt I'll get him back as as soon as I sent a reply to the ad she took the ad down and I haven't gotten any reply to my e-mails.

I'm so sorry. Don't give up! Do you have a friend who could call the woman and get Hermes for you? I hope you get him back soon.


And God said, "...let birds fly above the earth across the expanse of the sky." And God saw that it was good.

Get somebody to call on your behalf to say they will buy him. What a shame I can't understand people

I don't have her number, and her number wasn't on the ad or I would have gotten it! It was so long ago too that I don't have the e-mails we talked in anymore.
Blegh, this sucks...

What did Hermes look like? A male tiel popped up at the edmonton humane society a few days ago, 4 yrs old...grey with a yellow head and red cheeks. Picture on their website. Oh and need be, if you see him on Kijiji again, I would be happy to help get him for you since I'm not far.

Thankfully thats not him. Hermes is a Pastelface Pied and I haven't really seen many like him around.

Did you email direct from the page or from your own email address?

I would keep an eye out in case they post wanted ads or other for sale ads.

If you know her name google her and see hwat comes up.

I sent her an e-mail from Kijiji from the ad, with my e-mail but it doesn't show up on my e-mail who I sent it to.
Don't know her name, don't remember it.
I'm keeping an eye out for any other ads.
I wish I had kept the e-mails and her info from when she took him!!
