Is there anyway to block craigslist

A goffins cockatoo!!!! Her name is Cupcake. She'll be 2 in September. She is a total sweetie and a great dancer.

Heres the story. I was browsing CL last night and saw her ad. They wanted $350 for her, her toys, and her cage. I figured that shed be gone quick so I didnt sent a message. As the night went on it kept nagging at me to write so I did. Imagine my surprise when I got an email a few hours later from her. We wrote back and forth for awhile and Heath agreed to let me go meet her. Esp. after she said shed drop the price to $300 since I have bird experience. So today we headed up there (money in pocket) to meet Cupcake. It was love at first sight. She danced for me right away. So after trying to figure out how to get her cage, her, me, 2 of my kids, and Heath in the car we headed home.

The issues... This woman claimed to LOVE this bird. Poor Cupcakes beak is overgrown, her nails are at least a year to long. Her wings are tattered. She has plucked a part of her chest, and she has 2 broken blood feathers that Im to scared to pull. So we will be making a trip to the vet tomorrow. Its worth it though. She will have a wonderful home with us.

So Im going to put up a few pics.











Hope y'all enjoy!!!

Oh congrats Shanna she's beautiful, I love goffins. When I got my galah she was a plucker too, too's have that tendency if something changes or upsets them, poor birdie's. I love your cage too, I have that exact cage, except with a dome top for princess.

Thanks guys. I didnt realize how bad everything was till we got home and I really checked her all out. Made me want to go back and smack that woman for letting her to get to this point. Amazing though, after all that she is so sweet. She just gave me 2 kisses and is chilling on my couch.

I'm sure she'll be fine now since she's with you. My princess stopped plucking once I got her , her feather are growing in nicely. It's really great that you got that cage with her, really does make it better
