Announcing 2010 winner of "Be My Valentine."
2010 Be My Valentine Winner
|Djimo came to live with me about four years ago. He had been anonymously dropped off at the wild bird sanctuary where I volunteer and we had no information about him at all. It was obvious that he preferred women to men, but he was jumpy and uneasy in just about every situation. I decided to bring him home after a bit of coaxing by the Sanctuary staff. We had a very rocky start. He was often frightened and easily upset. He bit if you approached him too quickly and did not like my husband at all. But time is a great healer. . .Djimo needed a safe home with someone who was loving and patient, which I always tried to be with him. Now, he is a different bird - he's my cuddle boy!! Every morning at 5 a.m. I get him and his cagemate, Sage, and the 3 of us snuggle under a blanket on the recliner and have a wonderful sleep together. We often spend a lot of time cuddling together under a blanket in the evening after dinner and Djimo leans the point of his beak against my face and closes his eyes. He professes to be a "pretty bird!" and then laughs while we laugh with him. For all the joy he brings me now, and for deciding that I was HIS valentine, Djimo is now my special guy!|
