Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

Looks like Connie's thriving in his new home!

This really gives me hope, that if something unexpected happens there are are good homes for parrots out there.

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

I can't tell who looks happier about the situation... The two humans who have a loving new friend named Connie, or the little conure who finally has humans worthy of all the love (and chewing).

Thanks for sharing the pictures!!! (I love the pirate outfit!!)

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

This is a such a fantastic story.

I must commend the OP for their maturity and insight and doing what is best for their fid first.

I must also commend Connie for agreeing to be a forever home. It sure sounds like it was fate. I've experienced it myself when I got my Skittles. I was never a believer in fate until I got my Skittles. Now, given how he and I came to be, there is just far too many coincidences that it can't be explained any other way.

I'm sending lots of good vibes your way!

We need more stories like this with endings like this. With so much negativity and evil in the world, its heartening to find such a beautiful story come to be.

Re: I've decided... He's gotta have a better life.

Funny thing about the Halloween costume is that I didn't even think about how appropriate it was until the end of the day. I just needed a costume, a friend loaned me a few to choose from, I went with the one that felt the most fun and had a BLAST at work that day.

When I got home, I realized every pirate needs a parrot. Since she doesn't step up on command regularly as of yet, I just stood by her door to make it look like she was on my shoulder. Can you guess what happened next?

Yep, my little green beast grabbed my big hoop earring first with her beak and then with her foot. LOL - Let me remind you that I'm still pretty new to being a parront and my bird mentor had just been badly bitten on the lip by her amazon sooooooo, I was a bit alarmed for a few seconds.

Right now my little devil is screeching at me while I type and I wouldn't have it any other way! Oh, and Hubby just reminded me that the decibels will be doubled in a couple of days.........oh, what an adventure we are in for...........
