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!)

12 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.

  Hello Ogre and Flock!
Mom is backkkkkk! She came home yesterday from Jason's and was super exhausted!! Mom and Jason saw a few movies went out to eat and hung pictures in his apartment! He had 9 wood carvings that Grandpa made!! Mom hung them in the dining area and she and Jason went to TJMAXX and Mom bought him a nice big painting for over his couch! It's starting to look lived in now that Mom hung some stuff on the walls!! :)Remember I told you awhile ago that Mom purchased a blow-up mattress and had it shipped to Jason? Well Mom couldn't sleep on it cause it was not to comfy! Mom ended up sleeping on the couch recliner which wasn't to comfy either. Needless to say, she didn't get much sleep while she was there. Today Mom did a lot of cleaning in her room and the bathroom. We were happy just to have her back home with us!! Jason called today to tell mom he stopped at the humane society and he is thinking about volunteering there!! He has to apply on line and take a course that they will send him to. Mom sure is excited about this!!! I will let you know what happens!! :)
While Mom was away the Gym arrived that Mango won from the Bird Safe store contest!! I got to play on it before anyone else did because I am the only one that dad can handle with out getting a finger removed!! Heehehe... It was fun!!!
That's all for now!! I gotta get to bed soon!
Thank you for wishing Little Angel Peep a Happy Hatchday in heaven!! Mom had no idea that she was BOTD too!! It was so nice to see all of the wonderful notes left on her page. Lil Peep was a very special girl and will always be in our hearts!!!

love and hugs, Callie and flock
