Re: A little bit off subject plus answer to KittyJ

KittyJ we all agree that there are a lot of bird scams going
on. As to what birds sell for it can range from $100.00 to
3000. You said if you live in the same area see pictures of
the bird? Well anyone can copy and paste any photo and say it
is the bird they have for sale, just as I could post a picture
of a beauty queen and say it is me. LOL Just a joke.
PS. Spell check is easy just type your post into a new mail
window then run spell check then copy the corrected
post here. I use a lot of copy and paste.
The whole reason why people (as a rule) go to places like
livedeal.com or birdmart.com is because they have already
looked for a pet in their city and can't find one.
By CRIAGS LIST did you mean craigslist.org? Great place to
find a lot of other things for sale right in your own town.
BTW They don't sell pets on that but I know what you mean
by some people put an ad in MD and live in NC.
Now this may get me a lot of angry replies but I speak my mind.
Not everyone feels the same as I do and that is ok.
I won't buy from a breeder or pet store for the simple reason
that there are so many homeless and unloved pets in shelters
and rescue organizations and I would rather give a
home to a homeless or unwanted animal.
I am adopting Winston a beautiful 8 month old Dachshund that
is in a wheelchair. I will get him a week from today. I could
buy a Dachshund pup for $75. to $100. around here and it cost
more for me to adopt Winston but it also makes me feel good to
give Winston a home.
I also have a special needs bird and another dog.
The bird came from a breeder who couldn't sell him because
someone got mad and beat the bird with a hammer, taking off
two of his toes. The breeder gave him to a rescue
organization and I got him from there. The poor dog was an
abuse case also but from kids. They broke this tiny
chihuahua's legs then threw him into a pool. Thank God a woman
came by and took the dog to an animal hospital which is where
I got him after helping to pay for his surgery. They had to
remove one leg because it was mashed so bad it couldn't
For all the breeders , pet stores and people who buy from
them I say to each his own. I am not in any way putting you
down just sharing what I feel.
Sorry I got off subject a bit but I have spent the last week
helping to move animals that had been abused along with 3 dead
birds that were tied to a tree without food and left to die.
I put the link to see Winston's photo if anyone cares to see
