- 1 BFA- Kiwi. Hatch circa 98', forever home with us Dec. 08'
The letter was sent over this morning already by the relator. I did make some changes and appreciate all the suggestions! The final draft read:
To the HOA of ----------------------:
We are very excited at the prospect of purchasing unit 10210 and joining the ---------------------------- community! From what we saw, it looks like a very nice place to live with a lot to offer. Our real estate agent, -----------, provided us today with a copy of the HOA rules. We saw that all pets must be registered and wanted to introduce you to our feathered family member Kiwi! We know many people have not had much, if any experience living with a feathered neighbor, so we hope we can inform you a little more about Kiwi as an individual.
We bought Kiwi in 2008 and he has been trained to live in a small apartment setting since the day we brought him home. Kiwi has been potty trained, cannot fly, has always been a quiet individual and is strongly bonded to us. He is highly intelligent (his species can reach the mental capacity of a 3-4 year old child!) and we do continuing ‘advanced’ skills/trick-training sessions with him a couple times a week. He is also a very social and adventurous little bird who enjoys going for walks and day trips in his specialized carrier (see below). When we lived in another state, we lived with him in a studio and 1 bedroom apartment with no complaints. We have been renting a basement apartment in a residential home for over 2 years. Our current landlords have provided a short letter about their experience living with him in their house and said you can feel free to contact them with any questions.
Kiwi is quite small compared to more common pets. He weighs under a pound and is only about 12-13” long from head to tip of tail (approx. 8-9” not including tail). We appreciate tidiness and cleanliness wherever we live, and that extends to Kiwi’s cage/area as well. I have attached a few photos so you can see he is quite small, well trained and a much loved companion animal. We appreciate your time and consideration and look forward to meeting you soon!
