Re: nobody told me!

I agree non-bird people don't understand it. I have a friend who doesn't like birds and she can't understand what I see in parrots. For example: Zenek (my GCC) squawked few times and then she asked me how I can stand it (also then she said a sad thing what she would have done if she had had him)
Another time I told her that since I was 10 I had always had parrot(s) with a break about 6 months. Then she said: "This had to be the most happy time in your life" me: "No, I was thinking about species my next parrots"

Re: nobody told me!

it makes me so sad like only one of our friends showed the proper amount of enthusiasm about our son and the rest were like "oh well yeah its a bird" and i'm like DO YOU NOT SEE HIS MAGIC!?

its funny we have designated "poop shirts" now that we dont mind getting dirty or that have poop already on them, plus a roll of paper towels in every room since potty training he's gotten a lot better at not pooping on us but its easy enough to clean so whatevs! he chews clothes but we redirect using toys he likes. he's a bit of a dink though he'll get super excited on a toy and then try to fly off (which he can't as he's clipped) so he just glides gracelessly pfft.

its definitely not like having hamsters, but it reminds me a lot of when my dog Xena and late cat Alfonz were babies and I had to do a lot of work with them and bonding and training so its like getting to be a "mom" all over again!

honestly i love having toys all over the floor and getting things for him. it literally looks like we have toddlers but nope, birb! which is a-ok cuz neither me and drew want human children.

i like this club!

Re: nobody told me!

My bhc came to live with me 3 years ago - I'd never lived with birds before that, and he was an unplanned rehoming.

I'm totally in love. I had no idea how smitten I would be... xA

Re: nobody told me!

I rescued Gracie and the family was fine.

I was only granted permission to foster home Anakin(Anna). It didn't take long for that dang cockatoo to win my heart and wrap it in a bow. 6 weeks after he came to us I told them he was NOT being rehomed no matter what. If they couldn't wrap their heads around it than take it on the road!

I've been in trouble ever since(nothing new).

Haha I sing Lido (Leo ) Shuffle by Boz Scaggs to Leo all the time. Bluebell doesn’t have a song yet really, unless you count a birdy rendition of Bad Boys.

I hope you are no longer friends with that person. I can't imagine having a friend who's that harsh and mean about a living creature, especially one you keep and love. I don't think that's a good person who would say something like that.
