We were brought together by Max's former owner who just happened to be my friend. She had many birds at the time and not enough time to devote to Max. He wasn't really used to being the center of attention so I was asked if I wanted to take Max on a trial basis to see if I could work with him and I kept saying no until she wore me down and I figured I would take him for a week or two and then give him back but as you can imagine we fell totally in love with each other and he now has his FOREVER home where he will always be loved..

  Hi Max!
My mommy loves animals, too. She loves birdies and use to raise cockatiels but now she only has me. My mean daddy isn't very fond of us birds (that is probably why I growl at him...he he he). Oh, my mommy also has chickens but she loves me much more. Mom claims I will be getting a bird brother or sister once I am older but I hate to tell her I don't think so. I am going to have to give my mommy a talkin' to. Anyway, I really love your picture and your hat. Too cute!!

Come visit me, Echo, Tootles, Kiwi & Moose E. Moose.

Handsome boy! Love the need it with all the snow you get up there. Your motto is so true, a bird will change your view on the world. They keep you smiling even when you are feeling down! Birds are priceless members of the family!! And I would not trade my boys for anything...

Come visit me, Sirona, Trance & Frankie.

  Hello Max
Since I promised you a vote yesterday for today here it comes. I'll send the Vote right after sending you this email. Hope you'll return the Vote also. I never tried giving Toby pine nuts. Where go you purchase pine nuts in the shell? Hope to here back from you with the pine nut information. Take care.

Come visit me, Toby.

  Hello Max
What a great story. I love hearing stories like that. I also love the picture of Max. How did you get him to keep the Santa Hat on his head??? I already sent in my vote for today so I'll send you a Vote tomorrow. Hopefully you'll return the favor. It's nice to know you have such great owners. Take care, Toby & Douglas

Come visit me, Toby.

  Hi Max
I said hi to sushi and wanted to say hi to you too. You have a really nice story. I dont like my back being touched either but i love my head being rubbed. My mom hung a toy in my cage. I never had them before so i thought it was to rub my head. She tried showing me how to play but i just rub my head against it. She laughs so much at me when i do it. If she puts a piece of paper through my cage i will first bite it. When i see that it's ok i try rubbing my head on that too. The stupid thing wrinkles up on me though. Mom says i just have to bite everything first before i decided whether it's ok or not. most people get mad when i bite them so they dont get to pet me. Mom suffered her share of bites the first month. Now i just bite her leg when i'm strutting for her. I dont mean to bite it, I'm just trying to show how tough i am so that she will fall in love with me like i am in love with her. Well i voted for you today for adjusting so well.

Come visit me, Chester.

  Hi Max
What a sweet love story, my kind of story and with a happy ending. How long have you been at your FOREVER home? Your motto is so true. I too love all animals, but the love of my birds compares to none other.

Come visit me, Sweetpea & Buzz.
