- 1 15 year old Golden Capped Conure Named Wrnts
I grew up in a household where my mother beat our golden retriever with a broom, and she'd still come after you and try and play.
Wow, I didn't think when I wrote what I wrote that there were people that actually DID hit their dog with a stick!! You poor thing! That must have been so traumatising! You must have thanked your lucky starts when she didn't end up giving the bird away, and you got to inherit it and finally give it a proper loving home.
Yeah it was pretty sad, but there was really nothing I could do to make her stop. I just had to care for my animals the best that I could. I've had animals all through the years since I was a little girl. I had bunnies (that multiplied), betta fish, turtles, goldfish, guinea pigs, gerbils, hamsters, dogs, a cat, you name it. Not all at the same time though. At one point we got up to twelve animals in the house because the bunnies multiplied.
Needless to say we had to 'get rid' of the bunnies. So my mom took them to the humane society. (they're no-kill)
But yes, I am lucky that my conure, Wrnts, wasn't given away. I would have never forgave her. That was MY baby.
