I'm a brand new bird owner as of September 2007 and the very proud mother of Huey...a sun conure, hatched on July 8th, 2007 at a private breeders in Chicago, IL. I drove nearly 8 hours to go and pick him up! (what a bonding experience the whole way home though! He just snuggled up to my neck nearly the entire time!) Huey very quickly became my #1 priority and began running my life :) He has grown so much in the past few months and he comes up with new antics daily. I'm learning just what people mean when they talk about the personality of sunnys :) What a goofball! As he grows up he learns more an more new ways to make me laugh. His latest is climbing up my hair in back (I have fairly short hair), grabbing my hair in front and hanging upside down in front of my face and screaming. I laughed so hard the first time he did this!!
He thinks that he is going to die if I leave the room and he is not with me, so when I am home, he follows me everywhere. He's not staying just on my shoulder as much, but he definitely has to be messing around in the same room that I am in.
I am overwhelmed when I think about how much he has changed my life, and just how much you can fall in love with a bird. I'm single and have lived by myself for nearly 7 years, so a constant companion is something very new to me, but I know I could never again come home to a quiet and empty house. I'm so crazy about that little fid of mine I could just turn inside out! Thanks for so readily accepting me into the BB family!
As I stated above, I am a biology major with my sites on medical school where I plan on getting my MD in Internal Medicine. I've lived alone for nearly 7 years and loved every minute of it...until I found Huey, my fid, and now I could never live in a quiet, empty house again. I recently (as of a week ago) just got diagnosed with an incurable disease (not life threatening, but very hard to live with) that is making me rethink many things about my life. It's at a time like this that life could get really hopeless, and I am so thankful for Huey...he is my joy when I come home. Always ready to give me kisses, snuggle up to my neck, and whisper sweet nothings into my ear. I thank God for bringing him into my life when he did. On January 2nd I will be having major back surgery (did I mention that I am not even 25 yet?!?) and I am devastated to be leaving him alone for a whole week. Thankfully, my aunt has a blue crowned conure and is more than willing to take care of my baby for me while I am recovering!
I guess what I am trying to say is, my life has changed so much in the last year that I'm not sure what my interests are anymore or what I want to do, but I'm so crazy in love with a little parrot that I don't even care!! :)
What other type of pets do you own?
