Let me introduce you to Cumulus, a cockatoo with a story that tugs at the heartstrings of anyone who’s ever loved a bird.

Cumulus’s journey, as shared by GeoBeats Animals on YouTube, is not just a tale of the joy and sass that birds bring into our lives, especially cockatoos with their larger-than-life personalities.

Cumulus’s story begins on a somber note—he was abandoned and brought to a clinic suffering from a host of health issues, including a cloacal prolapse, among other complications.

Over time, and through the dedication of vets like Julie and Brian Speer, Cumulus underwent multiple surgeries.

Slowly the vibrant personality hidden beneath his ailments was unveiled.

Cumulus, despite his health struggles, is described as “absolutely incredible… the level of sass is fantastic. The attack on the penn drawer got me. 😂😂😂😂”

Indeed, it’s their cheeky antics and mischievous behaviors that often bring laughter and lightness into our lives, reminding us not to take everything so seriously.

One viewer shared a touching story that resonates with anyone who’s opened their home and heart to a feathered friend:

“He’s telling you his name is Eric. I rescued an African Meyer’s Parrot whose owner died and I started calling her Kiwi because we didn’t know what her name was. After a while she started calling out the name ‘Cokey’. I then started calling her Cokey and she would become excited and calling out Cokey with enthusiasm. Poor baby, I love her so very much. ❤” This narrative echoes the deep, personal connection we form with our avian companions, recognizing their identities and respecting their pasts.ADVERTISEMENT
