Hi Taz,

How are you? It's Oz and I can't wait until tomorrow night to go to the Milonga with you. My Mommy just read about the interview with your Mom about her little Xena. What kind of Bird was she? Mom's heart went out to your Mom and she knows exactly how she feels. Long before me Mom lost 3 Cockatiels at different times but it was always hard. Her first and most painful was a pure white Cockatiel with dark eyes named Taylor. Mom said she never saw a white one before and she reminded her of a small Cockatoo. NOW they say that they are in the Cockatoo Family. Anyway, Mom & her Taylor were very close and Taylor was very sweet and gentle. There was so much trust there. One day Taylor flew down from her cage (as she often did) and the way she landed on the rug she somehow broke her neck. Needless to say, Mom was a basket case. She was suppose to go out that day but there was no way she could. She misses her to this day. Again, she went back to the same Breeder (months later) and looked for a White One (even though a cute Lutino Male kept flying on her shoulder) and she found one and called her Sydney. She was far from friendly & Mom was on the phone with the Breeder so many times, she even offered to take her back & get a different one but Mom said No she'll work with her. Took months but finally Sydney decided she liked Mom. Well, a few years later she became egg bound & Mom didn't realize right away but she knew something wasn't right & decided to take her to the Vet's right after work but she didn't make it. Again, Mom was upset. Years later she tried again but this time with a White Face Male named Keaton. He was a real charmer & smart. He said many words, phrases & whistles. About 3 yrs. later, he either has a stroke or fell from the top of his cage, Mom took him to the Vet's in the AM. He checked him over, did blood work, gave him a shot and said to pick Keaton up after work but he died before she got there. It took Mom another 6 yrs. before she thought of getting another Cockatiel & her Vet convinced her to since they are great Birds. We now have Apache who will be 3 yrs. old the end of this month. He says a few words and phrases. Actually all of Mom's Birds say a least a few words but Mom doesn't care whether we do or not. She just loves us the way we are not because we talk and or whistle. Anyway, of course Mom has also lost a few Budgies but most of them lived long lives and that made her happy. I didn't write this to upset your Mom in any way but just to let her know that I understand her pain and it's so true that a pc. of your heart goes with them.

Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow Taz and by the way it's NOT very nice to bite your Mommy. Don't forget Mother's Day is Sunday and you be nice to her. She & your Dad gave you a great home. How many Birds/Parrots are abused or not taken care of and we are the lucky ones.
