A Typical Cockatoo?

This came from Elvis' temporary home:

Elvis is feeling better....

Imagine my shock when I walked in the kitchen this afternoon to find him happily destroying things on the center island.  He had crawled up the side of his cage, opened the feed door and let himself out.

He spent quite a bit of time eating the base of my computer chair, then headed for the island. He had to have flown, as there is no way he could have gotten up there by climbing. He opened a can, chewed up a box of tissues, tossed lots of things onto the floor, and ate some mail.

Time to get him into a permanent, cockatoo-proof cage!
