Sanctuary visit required

Skiddles loves to strut her stuff!

Usually, she lives alone, but she does go out and spend time with her parrot buddies outside in the garden. Here, Skiddles holds court, swaggers for her fans (translation: EVERYONE!)and lets them know SHE knows he's the bomb!

Skiddles is the typical mature adult female Amazon, full of vim and vigor; maybe a little boisterous at times. And she's also very quirky. Or maybe obsessive compulsive. Or just funny. Check it out: Skiddles always dunks her food in her water before eating. (Yeah, we think it's funny, too!) Skiddles would be very happy if she could hold court and dunk her food in his water in a forever home. She's a feisty little handful, there's no doubt. But she's a character. And she can't believe nobody's picked her yet!
