When my mummy saw me, she said I was the "one". Of course, I always knew that I was the one. How could I not be? I am so green and handsome!

Mummy brought me home and spoiled me with love and millet. I became infatuated with my toy bells... and even though mummy spent numerous hours taking care of me, there was still something missing.

On ONE very sunny day, I had been placed outside in a cage that was supposed to be secure. A gust of wind came over and toppled my cage, and I escaped. My mummy heard the big crash and she was so upset... they looked everywhere for me and I just stayed in the same spot looking to be found... I was found a day later in the neighbor's yard wandering around aimlessly, blending in with the grass... I had never moved since I was blown into this yard. I was reunited with my mummy and she gave me water and food, and the time I needed to recover. However, when I came home, I met this yellow bird named Homer. We quickly became best friends. Several months later, Snowball became the bird next door. I was frightened that she would break my bond with Homey, but this was not the case. Homey and I stayed best buds. Then, another budgie came home... Bluey. She was the tiebreaker. I suddenly decided to go after Snowball and try my best to woo her. She wooed me back, and now we are also best buds. It took Homer awhile to accept this, but now he is completely in love with Bluey... and when the girls are taking naps, ignoring us, or in the foodbowl? Us boy budgies still sing and flirt with another.

I am SO HAPPY to be home and nowadays, I refuse to leave my cage except (maybe) for millet spray... or if everybody else (my buddies) already left and I didn't want to be alone...

What is the lesson I hope people learn from my story? Well, first off, while I love my mummy to pieces... she could not replace the joys that came with a feathery friend. I love my budgie friends and we all get along greatly, and mummy still takes care of us. However, I would give the world for my friends and I am the happiest budgie because of them.

--- --- ---

All budgies are my friends, and I can never have enough. Therefore, I am always so sad to lose a budgie friend. Please keep Sophie Rose, Oliver, Oreo, Novel, Turk, Lattie, and all of our other feathery friends waiting for us at rainbow bridge--- in your memories. Share some millet spray in their honor... and keep on loving.

Hi! My name is ~*Ogre*~ (2003-2013)

I am an American Parakeet from Issaquah, WA.

Ohgster, "The green one is old" (My mummy does not like that nickname, someone on U-tube labeled me that! How rude. I am not old, I am wise...and handsome!)

13 years old   M

American Parakeet

Hah.. does anything compare to Millet Spray? Deeelicious! I also like to snack on any fresh greens, particularly basil or spinach! Also, RED pellet is the best flavor ever! Orange is second choice.

I prefer the interior of my cage... some of the other budgies are more adventure-some but I prefer safety and security. Therefore, you will usually find me on a secure and sturdy perch, either in my cage or on top. Mummy puts us on playgrounds and playstations periodically and I am okay with this as long as I have all my buddies.

When I do not get to sleep in my favorite green ring... sometimes another bird will try to kick me out! How rude... I was there first! I'm always first! However, I love my friends so much that I do not really complain. I will sleep on a lower perch just to make sure that everyone is happy.

My mummy is protective of me, and won't let any of the scary big birds get too close. She also gives me a mist bath everyday because I like it so much!

I like to smear pellet all over my beak... especially red pellet, and maybe orange. I then hop over to the mirror and check myself out. Having red pellet dangle off my beak is a fashion statement! I also like to wipe pellet all over rope and chew on it so my mommy had to remove all toys with rope and spoil my fun... Sad! I also LOVE trying to take a bath in one of the hanging mirror toys (with cubes)... it is so ridiculous! I do this every single day. All mummy has to do is walk by and I beg for a mist! All the other budgies hop away and hide, but I love a daily mist. I may try to take a bath in the green ring too. ALSO, back before I had budgie friends (the BEST!)... I carved a bird shape out of my calcium... I am very artistic and charismatic! I can talk human (my favorite word being Ogre, of course) but prefer to sing beautiful songs for everyone instead! However, come up to me and make tongue clucking noises and I will start doing it too!.

It is good to have friends! Especially friends with feathers.
