Sometimes people have to become animal parents unexpectedly and without any prior knowledge, such as when a close friend or relative can no longer take care of their pet and an unsuspecting person is asked to step up. When this happens, it's important for people to seek help to understand proper care for the animal, like one person did after inheriting an unusual family pet.
TikTok user @blueplanetpets is named Zeb, and he is someone who educates people on how to properly care for parrots. He recently posted a video about a man who suddenly had a macaw passed down to him that had been in his family for decades and reached out to Zeb for help. Check out the video to see what Zeb has to say about the situation and gain a few valuable lessons in the process!
Wow, this is awesome! We're so glad this macaw's new owner reached out for help so, together, they can create a positive environment for the macaw and the owner. This video had some inspirational lessons about the importance of asking for help and meeting requests for help with a positive and encouraging response.
People in the comments were thrilled that Zeb is helping the macaw owner step up for his new pet. @imcourtneylee said, "I'm tearing up! You are so selfless! I am so happy they texted you when they were ready for help. You do so much good for the bird community." Another user, @jbreeze420, commented, "Im literally crying! You didn't judge and the owner were receptive rather than defensive... Lucky bird!" We're so happy this owner is taking the steps to improve the macaw's living situation and he has such a knowledgeable person to educate him!

Others asked Zeb if the family would give the bird to Zeb to care for because he has taken in many other birds in need of care in the past. However, Zeb confirmed that the owner wants to try and improve as a Macaw owner to keep the bird in the family, and Zeb is happy to teach him how he can do better.
It's inspiring how the macaw's new dad was able to recognize his shortcomings as a pet parent and ask for help, and we love how dedicated Zeb was to making this work for the macaw. Thanks to Zeb for sharing this awesome story!
