I am proudly owned by a sun conure named Kiwi. I love him like he was a child.

R.I.P Voo Doo-cockatiel
I first became interested in birds as a young child. I had 2 budgies named Lucy and Ricky. When I was 9, I got VooDoo, my sweet little cockatiel. He taught me so much about birds and their personalities. He passed away at the age of 21 in 2010 and it broke my heart. I couldn't take staring at his empty cage. I decided that I needed another feathered child to take care of. I was researching parrot species and the beauty of the sun conure nearly bowled me over. I went to a pet store with no intention of taking a bird home; I was merely doing research. When I saw Kiwi in his cage and how excited he was to have attention paid to him, I knew I had to have him. Against my better judgment, I left without him. I cried the whole ride home. As soon as I got out of the car, I called the pet store and asked them to hold him till the next day. The rest is history.....
My next chapter with Kiwi will be teaching him free flight. He was clipped at the pet store, so we are anxiously awaiting him to grow new flight feathers so we can work on training.
Aside from my life as Kiwi's mom, I am a high school English teacher. Having summers off means more Kiwi time!!
What other type of pets do you own?
