Oh Tom, you little heartbreaker! Bedtime for Lovejoy is hard enough, with Tom it must be downright impossible!!😍
It’s really is!
Though, I’m sure putting fluorescent Lovejoy to bed is a challenge as well 😍

Oh it is! He gives me THAT look from those BIG eyes and makes the most heart-rending little "peep" noises at me when I cover him up, it kills me EVERY. SINGLE. TIME!!!! 💔:eek:

Vigilance had paid off! Hedwig has finally decided she likes me after 2 years!

That is like the best feeling ever 🥰
That's why I always emphasize time to new bird owners or someone worrying about the timeline of their bonding, it pays off eventually ❤️

Awww, Tom! What a cuddler. I'm glad Ona doesn't do this to me before bed 😅 I'd be tempted to just let him nap in my hand for a while.

Congrats on Hedwig! That's so exciting!

I’ll stand there for maybe 20 minutes 😅

Better not show Ona pictures of Toms witchcraft or she may try and replicate it!

Tee hee!! My Lilly used to do something similar. When either hubby or I were doing stretches on the floor, she'd fly down, get right up in whoever's face, fuzz up to the MAXXX, squawking and hopping around until we laughed so hard we'd have to give up stretching! I miss that funny crazy little girlie - thank you for bringing back a beautiful memory of her 💖

Oh my goodness!
This sounds so adorable! 😍

It feels nice to have your birds or other peoples birds bring back good memories of our passed birds, I’m happy Tony provided that for you!
