Ralphie is an African Grey Timneh. He is about 30 years old and was once a wild bird who was kidnapped and brought to the United Stated about 29 or 30 years ago. I have had him for 3 years now and my husband and I are part of his new flock. I think he likes us, who else would do almost anything he wants when he wants? He enjoys traveling through the home from room to room with us and sitting in our little screen room outside when we are there.
I like to spend time with my family as much as possible, and am working on getting on the Heart Transplant list at this time. Ralphie is my little baby now and I enjoy making him happy, which can sometimes be a challenge. We are learning to get along with each other and we spend a lot of time together...he is my therapy friend in a way...he keeps me in a positive mood and gives me hope. I have had several birds in my life, a Conure,Caesar(because you had to peel his grapes), several budgies, a cockatiel named Nester(we used to take naps together in the recliner. We believe she was our gift from god; she was found and had no known owner - we had a gas leak and she saved our lives after 5 years of companionship), and now we have Ralphie. I have also owned cats, dogs, a pet goose (named Mrs. Peepers who used to preen my hair, fly beside our car to the end of our yard when we went to town and she used to steal my daughters ice cream cones),several fish, an alligator (briefly until he was adopted by my friend's grandfather), mice, a hamster, a rabbit and a semi-box turtle named Nemo ( before finding Nemo came out. I think that covers all my pets). I am also a member of 911Parrot, an international lost and found parrot rescue and database.
What other type of pets do you own?
