Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

Hi all. New update. Sorry for the mysterious previous update. I have a connection with a parrot rescue group that I totally respect. I had been sharing with them what had happened too as we deal with this. At some point, they kind of threw out the idea of them fostering Jasper, us taking a step back, and then reconsidering/considering finding a better match later - fostering to adopt. They had not heard recent updates. Due to various reasons, we considered that idea within the past two weeks, just because of the work it has been to get here. Well, long and short of it, as we considered this option, we realized we were very torn. i.e we could feel we have turned a corner on our feelings about him. We felt like we would let him down. Maybe we are not at the - we would miss him lots phase - but at the very least, we are at the starting to feel bonded phase. So, I want to say, we chose him all over again. We made the decision to stay in there. He is a very sweet bird. Very low-key. He remains that way. He is now starting to come look for us if we both leave the room and he is still on his cage. I ran down the hall to a meeting and my husband too, and didn't make sure one of us took him. He went looking for us. This has happened a couple times. He has also been in the bath with me for a bit. He knows our routine during the day, and likes it. So......Jasper is still here. We are still here. A week ago, I wasn't sure where we would be.....but still here. I highly advise that if you lose a pet, you WAIT to get a new pet. Give yourself time to grieve. It is normal to want to think about the pet you lost. Normal. Not a good idea to get a new one when still thinking about the old one.

Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

Aw, I’m glad to hear this. The best relationships take some work, and you’ve been putting in work....it does sound like it is starting to pay off.

Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

I'm really glad you fleshed out the prior update! Considering a foster was out-of-the-box creative solution for Jasper and your family. More proof you and your husband are deeply motivated to make this work yet willing to consider unorthodox solutions.

Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

Hello all. I hate to say that we are still struggling with this, but we are.....we have circled back around to the above possibility I described. Why had this been so hard?

Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

People come here for lots of reasons, often seeking advice because they need it, sometimes to vent, or grieve a loss. You've been doing your best, and it sounds like your whole situation may be changing. No one here will fault you for your ultimate decision, as long as it's in Jasper's best interest.

Re: Bird Purchase Mistake - Help!!!

Sometimes it is hard, you’re still grieving for a lost companion and trying to build a relationship with a new one - we know you have Jasper’s best interests in mind. We’re here for you - for venting or help or whatever is needed.
