Thank you everyone and birdies
I am still completely tore up, and the tears come in waves. I couldn't sleep last night without the comfort of birdie cuddles and I guess Ichi understood that because he cuddled with me for a long time. Which he normally doesn't do at night. It was especially hard this morning waking up without Polly's I love you's. But I decided to venture out to the local bird store today, and within 2 minutes of being there, I managed to find the nakedest bird there. A female African Grey whom her owner of 14 years just passed away last week. Losing her owner and the transistion to the bird store really messed her up and she's been plucking bad. She came right up to me and cat called. I looked at my husband and said, I think I may have found my new love. I normally wouldn't go for an African Grey as I'm partial to Conures and Macaws, but the fact that her and I both just lost a loved one, made me feel like fate brought us together. The lady in the bird store looked very excited as I asked about the bird and told her I may be interested. I was asked to come back and keep visiting. There's also a Large Bolivian Mitred Conure there that was a breeder but lost his mate and is now a plucker. He needs quite a bit of work tho, and the store is looking for someone who can work with him. I may just start coming in a few times a week help out and get to know the birds. I can definately spare 2 hours a day to do something really good! As it was today, I gave attention to the Grey, played with a goofy B&G Macaw (my husband actually played with a Lesser Sulfur Crested Cocokatoo!) and I picked up a run away Senegal off the floor. And I'm ALWAYS educating people on birds everytime I go there. It's not the best store in the world, but I think I could help make it better. I'm still definately going to write my book. There will probably be a chapter or two about Polly. I'm still very heart broken, but helping others does help fill the void, and I do take great comfort in knowing that Polly was a very happy bird in his last month with me, and I learned so much from him.
