Amelie creates parrot palace for Lollipop

First Prev 1 2 3 4 5 Next Last

Amelie Mulder Powell has always loved visiting Lollipop the macaw at Sousa's Garden Centre.

But when she noticed that her cage was starting to look a bit bare, she decided to forego her birthday presents this year to spruce up her feathered friend's cage.

Amelie, 8, said: “We live very close by so I always go to visit her. She knows us — whenever we leave, she says, ‘goodbye'.”

But the Warwick Academy pupil said she felt bad for Lollipop, who even dances “sometimes”, because her cage looked bare and her toys were getting old.

She decided she wanted to make Lollipop's life a little better and asked her friends and family for gift certificates to pet store Noah's Ark in place of gifts for her birthday in March.

Amelie said she picked out a “lot of stuff”, including a new rope for Lollipop to climb on, and a wooden ladder.

The plan was to drape a cloth over the rope so she “can have some privacy for once”.

Amelie stopped at Sousa's on Friday to put the items in the cage, which she had been looking forward to a great deal.

She explained that her older sister Lily, was also excited. “She loves Lollipop as much as I do but a little bit more.”
