I remember it well...I was about 7 months old at the time. It was Jan. 30, 1992 and I was living in the old Woolco dept. store. Conditions were horrible! I was in a small cage, my water wasn't too clean and I didn't have many seeds. Many people had complained about the bad living conditions that us birds had. Sadly enough, nothing was ever done. I'm glad that place no longer exists anymore. One weekend, an entire shipment of finches died because no one fed or watered them....That particular day, a woman came in with her mom and before I knew it, a gloved hand reached into my cage and grabbed me! I was terrified and let out a blood-curdling scream as I was shoved into a little dark box. I feared the worst. Not long after that, the box was opened and I cautiously peeked out...I was stunned at what I saw! It was like paradise! I had a nice cage with the best food, clean water and lots of toys! I mean I had everything that a 'tiel could want! It wasn't too long after that and I was introduced to the rest of the flock and the first love of my life, Sally. JOEY LIVED HIS LIFE TO THE FULLEST TO THE END. HE PASSED AWAY ON AUGUST 30, 2013. HE WAS 22..

Hi! My name is In loving memory of my beloved Joey

I am a Cockatiel from Nelson, BC.

Mr. Grey, Joey Jo!, Gentle Giant, JOSEPH!-I only get called this when I get into trouble...we all do sometimes! I'm a 'tiel, what else can I say?

23 years old   M

Cockatiel

Millet, nutriberries, spinach, popcorn, brown rice, pasta, carrots, peas, corn.

My favorite spots are the climbing tree, the curtain rods, Poppy's cage, Sunny's cage, picture frames and the two chairs that are in my room. I also love to snoop in any nooks and crannies.

I really don't like being shooed off the picture frames or the wicker chair. If my human didn't want me to chew on them, why did she put them in the birdroom in the first place? I also hate the telephone ringing, and I am getting tired of all the pictures been taken too.

She understands me! Oh, I love the goodies, toys, head scratches and all that, but let me put it this way-I have outlived 4 of my girlfriends and several of my buddies, too. I just recently lost Candy on Nov. 23, 2008 and was so heartbroken. My pet human knows that I am a macho, macho bird and that I just simply love the ladies. She knew I needed a hen in my life and she got my latest love, Poppy at the end of Nov. on the 29th. How is that for an awesome mom!

I like to stick my head inside a large bell that is in my cage and wear it like a hat. I also like to walk around with my wings outstretched if I think something is scary. I have a peculiar habit of flying over to the posters on the wall and clinging to them as I chew on them. My pet human is always amazed at this because they are flat against the wall..

Being a senior psittacine, I feel it fitting that I should share some of my wisdom with you younger flock members about my secrets for longevity: No matter how old you get, always act like you are two!.

  Hi, sweet Angel Joey
Dear friend, you are not forgotten and we miss you so much! Our mom can't bear to think of the time that might come when one of us flies to the rainbow bridge. I (Angel) am now 17 and mom knows my time may come way before she is ready to let me go (never). Mom knows, though, that her role on earth is stewardship. We really belong to God and eventually will return to Him. What an honor to be blessed to be chosen to steward a bird! So, this is how we look at it and realize how blessed your mom was to have you for 22 years!

Love always,

Angel & Pepper

Come visit me, ANGEL & PEPPER.

  Hi Joey
We are so sorry it has been a month since our last blogging but the parront has been busy working 5am to 1:30pm for the last 8 weeks. She needs to save some money and also to pay home and car insurance. The A/C broke and she does not know yet how much will be the cost to repair it. The weather is getting hot here already.She also needs a new car, so many expenses.

On Monday 24February she got her first injection on the lower back, there was no much improvement after it, last Monday she got 2 more injections on her lower back, so far her lower back is not bothering her. On Monday 31 she will have another injection on the cervical area.

Also the computer is getting slow, and she does not understand windows 8 yet so she could start using her new laptop.

This is our current situation. Since she is very busy we don't know yet when we will be able to blog again.

This is all for know

See you soon

  Hi Angel Joey
Flying down from the bridge to give this special vote to you and to tell you we are happy, you are the BOTD! You are very pretty and here is a poem for your Mommy:
THEY ARE STILL THERE
I was near you, by your bed last night; I came to have a peek. I could see that
you were crying, you found it hard to sleep. I chattered to you softly as you
brushed away a tear, "It's me, I haven't left you. I'm well. I'm fine. I'm
here." I was close to you at breakfast. I watched you pour the tea. You were
thinking of the many times your hands reached out to me. I was with you at my
grave today. You tend it with such care. I want to reassure you, that I am not
lying there. I flew with you back towards the house. As you fumbled for your
key, I gently touched you with a feather, I smiled and said, "It's me." You
looked so very tired, and sank into a chair. I tried so hard to let you know
that I was perching there. It's possible for me to be so near you everyday To
say to you with certainty, "I never went away." You sat there very quietly, and
then smiled. I think you knew In the stillness of that evening, I was very close
to you. The day is over - I smile and watch you yawning And say, "Good night,
God bless, I'll see you in the morning." And when the time is right for you to
cross the brief divide, I'll fly across to greet you and we'll enter side by
side. I have many things to show you. There is so much for you to see. Be
patient, live your journey out... then come home to be with me.
