Well, my husband says no to more birds but wants to get a dog. I am
all for it - love dogs as long as they are small, and don't shed!
Since hubby is disabled, I thought a bird would be the best pet for us
at this time since I don't have time to walk a dog and he can't. She
is bonded more to me, but they are together all day, she'll be with
him watching TV, sit on his shoulder while at the computer and take a
nap on his arm when he naps - soooo darn cute!!
The pet store I frequent has 2 baby grays - stole my heart!! One is
sold already and I bet the other will be sold this week.
I could just imagine what my tiel would be like if I brought in
another bird!! She would be very mad I'm sure!
I'm kind of crazy with her though - I do cook and bake for her, buy
veggies she likes even though I don't like them. Bought a pomegranate
(spelling?) she eats about 2-3 kernals a day! And sprouts and what
ever I'm eating for dinner. Last night I gave her some broccolli and
cauliflower off my plate and onto hers - well that just wasn't good
enough!! She came over to my plate and started eating my cauliflower
and broccolli! The little stinker!
She brightens my day after a long day at work when she whistles as I
come in the door - she's so happy to see me and can't wait to sit on
my shoulder or on my head or under the chin. Love the little bugger!
