This is a photo of two pairs of "constant friends" - one (Jaś & Fela) is together until today, but the second pair unfortunately is a broken bond because of Romek's death two days ago

Thank you Terry, Saxxy, Foxxy and Aunty G!! Once again the little green imp perched on my shoulder was all the inspiration that was required ;)

And I think you're right about the teary eyes too, Aunty G, I get the feeling there may be quite a few onions being chopped this month!

What a pair of pretty pairs, Roz! I’m so sorry for Romek’s passing. Saying goodbye to a friend is always so very sad, but necessary so that we may know the joy that comes with meeting them again one day 💞

Thank you for your entry! (or is this a JFF?)

I'm so sorry Rozalka, my deepest condolences for the passing of Romek.

Such a lovely remembrance entry.

Spectacular contest Martina! What could be more naturally appropriate than companion theme??
Her Royal Worshipfulness says "Thank you, Uncle Scott" - it was all Her idea after all :)

La Principessa is up and about and has had her breakfast and has most assuredly had an extra helping of love from you, Uncle Jim :) ❤️

I'm tossing my hat in the ring. I received Henry Little (cousin to Stuart and Chicken) from my hubby this last February (he was a rescue and we are his 4th and forever home). He is my smallest and youngest parrot and we have bonded like you wouldn't believe. That is his favorite place to perch, right up next to me or under my hair. As soon as I walk in the house he's screaming "MOM!" I'm his personal bus, as he's climbing everywhere on me and asking me "What ya doing?", like the 4 year old he is. This little GCC has stolen my heart. I titled the picture "Hoodie Weather".
Thanks,
Kimberly

Oh BombsAway, I teared up twice at this pic. Once because of how happy little Henry looks, and again because he has finally found his forever home! Thank you so much for your entry, he's such a sweet baby and I'm so very happy for the two of you ❤️

He hasn't just stolen your heart, he's stolen everyone's. Such a beautiful conure, and a great photo. Thanks for the entry!
