Re: nobody told me!

We know EXACTLY what you are feeling, as many of us feel as though our birds are more like our children! I wish I could bring my birds to work, I sit up front with a lot of windows around me and Ember would have a blast just sitting on my shoulder all day long.

Re: nobody told me!

I think it is called parrot-addiction.

Is had all kinds of side-effects: you start eating healthy because then you can share your meals, shower at crazy times 'because it is better for the birds', all of a sudden devellop an interest in little-kiddie-toys even if you are single, childless or have childeren not in that age-catagory, find levels of patience you never knew you had, learn not to care about clothes anymore (or just plain give up and decide to wear chewtoys fulltime / at home anyway .. ), the list is endless

and you know what? Most of them are great


YES this is totally the right place to post this!

Maybe this is just me, but I don't get at all excited about finding bird poop on my carpeting, the wall, the comforter on my bed, etc. I've had friends over and they'll sit on the couch and be like "Is that a little bird poop? Ewe! How can you stand that?"...I just walk over and throw it away, lol...

Re: nobody told me!

I get ya, Mrs. Pants! We all do.

Recently I have had it pointed out to me that I make up little songs for the Rb, or alter
commercial jingles. Ya know that television ad for Liberty Mutual Insurance?
I just caught myself singing "Rickeybird, Rickeybird, Rickeybird...Rickeybird!"

Re: nobody told me!

Re: nobody told me!

I get you! I thought getting a bird would be like getting a hamster... something cute and fun to hold but not terribly interesting. What I got was more like having a child than it is like having a pet. I'm just so darn lucky I get to work from home and I'm with my little Yoda all day, every day.



My husband had pets growing up but he never got attached to them. Every day he tells me how amazed he is that he could love anything (other than me! ) as much as he loves our Yoda. His parents are always telling me they can't believe how attached he is to our Yoda, they've never seen him care so much for a pet. Yoda has changed our lives.


Non-Parronts just do NOT understand.

Re: nobody told me!

I work in different areas on 3/4 different computers.
All my desktops have pictures of my Fids on them.
It helps a little bit.
