I was home sick with the flu and was also starting to go into a very severe clinical depression. My niece called and said that she had an African Grey that she needed to find a home for. At first I said "no". She told me that she was not able to spend any time with him, that he was by himself 99% of the time, and that he had started to pull his feathers. She told me that if I didn't take him, he would be going to a woman who had 23 cats. Well, that did it, I said OK. It was the best descision that I had ever made. He helped my through my depression, he litteraly saved my life. I thank God everyday for sending him to me. He is the love of my life..

don't touch his treats. not taking him out of his sleep cage when he starts pounding.

She loves me, she spoils me, she kisses me a lot, we play tickle, she protects me.

First word every morning is, Water. When I put him in his sleep cage, he turns around so that I can kiss his cute little butt. Sitting on my leg and eating off my plate.

  FROM LOLA'S MOM
On October 5th 2007 at 7:45am My Sweet Lola flew to the Rainbow Bridge. Yesterday Lola was found on the floor crying because one of the other birds had chased her off her cage. I checked her out to see if she was hurt and comforted her and she seemed to be fine. This morning at breakfast she was on the bottom of her cage struggling to breath. 10 Minutes later she took her last breath in my hands. Lola was the sweetest baby and will be in my heart always. Hippie Boy said his final goodbyes to her with a loving preen. Please say a prayer for her for a safe flight to the Rainbow Bridge.
Hugs,
Lola's Mom

  Hi Rosco and Auntie Rocky
Sadie here. Just stopping by to say hello and to give you a vote. Hope everything is ok. How are your new flock members. Hope the blind one is doing ok now.
Did you hear about Alex the Grey? He passed away on the 7th. So very sad. He was the most famous African Grey in the world. Did you know he lived just a few miles from me? Mom never did get to go and visit him even though she always wanted to. Well, I better go. Talk to you soon I hope.
Love you,
Sadie

  Hey Rosco
Glad to hear your doing ok. I was beginning to worry about you. How is Precious doing now? Is she adjusting to her new home? Is Mom doing ok at the rescue? She sure is lucky to be able to work there. The birds in her care are lucky to have her. We are doing good here. I have learned lots of new words. I now say Wacko and I love you and Where's Papa and Night night. Pretty cool huh? This is all in the last 2 weeks..LOL Mom says I am really adjusted now. Didn't take me too long huh? I also gained lots of weight. Mom calls me a pork chop now..LOL Hey I don't know if I like that..lol What's a Pork Chop?..lol Well, it's really late, Mom let me get up to write this but now I have to go back to bed. Sweet dreams..
Love ya,
Sadie

  Hi from Buddy and Little Bird!
Wow, you got another birdie..and a Grey too! It sounds like your Mom is an angel to take in birds with problems. She's probably a little emotional now..Mom's get that way sometimes. Just say something funny and she'll cheer up. I give mine raspberries omce in a while and she gets a kick out of that! Here's a vote from us!!

Poor Precious. She must be so sad. Please take good care of her. She will need you Rosco. We have a blind bird here too. It's Burgin my Cockatiel brother. Tell Auntie Rocky I hope her foot gets better soon. Mom has been so busy she has hardly had time for blogs but she will try to catch up on Friday and Saturday.
Hope all goes well with the Precious and if Auntie needs Mom's help just holler. She can get our phone number from Auntie Conny.
Love ya,
Sadie

Hope your mom is doing a lot better today. I know she is a little worried about you getting upset because she can not let you be outside your cage now as long as she has to "hopple" around, hehehe, but things will get better. It's for your own safety, sweety. Your mom just don't want anything happened to you if you start flying off through the house. Making it just a short visit, trying to catch up with everybody. We talk to you soon. Love you all, Simu & mom

  Yeah broken toes sure hurt too. They turn black after, ouch! Mommy felt like passing out when it happened. Really, Sammys' chirps kinda scare you, it's because you're not use to it. In time I am sure you will grow to love him . :) I tolerate Angel as long as she stays on her side of the room too. It's hard because you and I have been alone for a long time. Hope it's better today. Love ya xoxoxo ZAZOO

  Yeah we know. We were the first ones on his page. That's normal to not be sure what to think of a new birdie. It won't take long though. ZAzoo was acutally pretty good about me, like I am not here still acutally. hahaah and he does still tell me to shut up sometimes. And he loves to whistle when I do. You will see he will be great company . He'll grow on you, and you will be the best daddy ever oh and thanks for the compliments, I Am blushing hee hee Love ya too and Sammy xoxoxox ANGEL
