Hi! My name is Cleo

I am a Normal grey Cockatiel from Nelson, BC.

Not yet

6 years old   M

Normal grey Cockatiel

I love millet, spinach, mixed veggies and sugar snap peas! I also love the cooked whole grain mixes that mom makes for me!

I love to hang out on my cage and also the upper branches of the climbing tree. I love to fly up to the curtain rods and wait for mom to rescue me. As my wings are clipped it is quite an effort but I still can make it!

I don't like the fact that my wings are clipped but mom says that they will grow back in. I just can't wait to get my pilot's license back! I also don't like to be shooed off the high perches of the climbing tree by Joey. Something about him being the 'alpha male'?

She is patient and gentle with me. She also loves to spend time with me and talk to me and I just love all the attention! I love to sit on her hand and get head scratches...I knew those fingers would be good for something! She gives me neat toys to chew on and just recently a large brass bell! I just love bells!

Until I came to my forever home I had never seen a mirror before. The first time I looked into the one in my cage I hissed and backed away. I peeked again, hissed and backed away. The third time I looked I was so enamoured with how cute I am that I have become a mirror fan! I absolutely love them!.

Life is better with a mirror and a pet human to love you!.

  Hi, Cleo
It is funny about the lights in that even with a shut door the second set will go on. Last night mom managed to get the lights on the tree off and the lights in the kitchen didn't turn on. However, this morning dad turned the lights in the kitchen on (door shut) and the tree lights came on too! Said he tried using the remote held to the back but still powerful enough to go thru the house.

Oh, think we do have a temp/humidity guage thingy. Not sure how to read it other than the temp but there are other numbers on there so mom'll have to ask dad. We've never had a problem and never been sick but we're gonna check.

Had more rain yesterday. Mom got more shopping done and needs to wrap. Also needs to send out her cards so everybirdie can receive 'em in time since many of our friends are in other states.

The decorated tree is in our view. Waiting to see what goes underneath as only things there is something for the grand from the neighbors since mom hasn't wrapped yet. We've been good. No pooping in the water dish lately, heehee.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

that mean TWO days till mom's vacation ! Today and tomorrow ! Of course tomorrow night is a Cookie and dad night - she has the nerve to make plans with some of her friends to get together before the holiday ! Jeepers - I thought vacation would be ALL Cookie !

I'm still decorating my cage - I got a couple more pieces of wrapping paper last night, but haven't found just the right spot for them yet . . . maybe today while mom and dad are gone. Have a good day :) love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
Good that your mom has the car repair appointment. Guess that it takes so long as paint must dry when doing the repair. Hopefully she'll get it back by the 31st but at least has the other car to drive and get around.

Mom has more shopping to do today. Then she has to wrap stuff. The tree is looking good but it only has the glass ornaments on it as she's not sure where the box that has her cute animal and bird wood and cloth ones are. Dad bought a remote for the tree lights but didn't realize it is same frequency that is on the lights over the sink. So, when turning one on/off it does the other one. Have to hold the remote close to the source to only get the lights on that want on, heehee.

We don't have a humidifier and seem to be okay. The heater is in another room so it doesn't get overly warm where we are but we aren't cold. Our mom has wondered about it but we don't seem to have any skin or feather issues.

We're down to just THREE days of work for mom until she's off ! Good thing too - the kids are getting more and more excited and it's getting hard to keep their attention !

  Hi, Cleo
Hopefully your mom can get that car appointment soon and that it won't take too long. We assume it is drivable but just has the unsightly damage?

Think it was sunny this morning. Can't recall it seems like a long time ago. After mom got home from work she came home and took care of us then off she went to pick up skinsis and the grand for some shopping. They went back to mom's work for skinsis to pick out some baby toys then it was off to the mall. Skinsis wanted to find a gift for one of her girlfriends and also needed something for her hubby. Then it was off to another shopping center. They visited Cost Plus, Michaels, PetSmart and Target, whew! After mom dropped them off at home it began to rain. Now it is pouring.

Rain is in the forecast thru Fri. Not enough yet to end the drought but glad we had a couple of dry days in between.

Dad got the lights on the tree and added some ornaments. Mom'll do more of it tomorrow and wrap the few things she's already got but it has a couple of gifts there from the neighbors for the grand.

It's Tuesday - mom had to cancel her drama club (don't think the kids will mind !) - it's her faculty/staff holiday party after school ! She doesn't plan on staying too long cause she'll miss me ! Besides me and daddy will be wanting our suppers - ha ha ha !

Our weather is near the 40's for almost this whole week ! Rain overnight tonight though :( I guess it's better than snow. . .

  Hi, Cleo
Whew! Glad your mom's ins doesn't go up. Thought that would've been strange. Understand it is a pain in the tail feathers getting the repair appointment and being without while it is fixed. The last time our mom got a rental since it didn't cost eggstra and they even came and got her and upon return just left it at the repair place for the rental folk to retrieve.

Raining a tad today, but we had two mostly clear days to drain and dry and not so heavy as last week.

We aren't fond of being misted but neither of us will use the bath. Silver will often open his wings up for but Pearl rarely does. Nothing feels or smells so good as a newly bathed fid. So soft and clean.

Mom and dad got home early yesterday from the g'parronts with some fresh sugar snap peas ! There's a great little market up near their house that is expensive (I'm worth it) but has the nicest produce . . .

  Hi, Cleo
We are a fairly mellow pair of 'tiels. Occasionally have our moments and get into beak battles though they never last long.

Doesn't seem right that your mom ins should go up due to someone else backing into her! She was stopped and not to blame as not like she was blocking something. People just are in too much of a hurry these days and do not check or are careful enough it seems.

There are hills near us but have to drive at least 10 minutes or so to get there. Glad not to live there though know dad would love it. Some of his friends had parronts who moved their families there so he'd visited 'em there. Mom would not want to have to drive on a mountain road daily to go to work or shopping. The twisting and turning isn't fun but the narrow road are the worse. Guess you could say we are firmly in suburbia, heehee.

Yesterday turned out terrific ! Other than some grocery shopping the parronts stayed home . . . mom wrapped and dad watched some tv. I even got the scraps of paper to decorate my condo ! Mom didn't wrap mine or daddy's presents - although both of our stockings look a little lumpy :)

Today is another story though :( The folks are heading up to the g'parronts like they do every weekend. So they'll put on the Christmas music for me and I'll watch the outdoor friends at the feeders on the patio.

Have a good one ! Love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
In all these years we have never once hurt ourselves when fallen off a perch at night whether due to a quake or perhaps a noise? Heard that other birds will continue to thrash and take a long time to settle back down to sleep. We aren't like that and guess that is mostly why no injuries. We don't really have night frights - unless there's an earthquake!

That is good Chicklet is doing well and has adjusted to the strict diet. We know she gets lots of bathroom time and attention and hopefully won't get into the breeding mentality.

Gosh, thru no fault of your mom has has to deal with the ins folk and the repair folk and get her car fixed. Minding her own business at the stop light and getting hit must've been scary. Would assume the other ins will pay for it all?

Got a lot of rain on Thu. It was nonstop but for our area no flooding and no loss of power. Many other communities had both issues and mudslides to deal with. People were warned days and days ago, but guess sometimes the water or mud is just too strong. Of course silly people who drive their vehicles thru standing water are just asking for trouble and possibly risking others if need rescuing.

It's Saturday and other than the grocery store, mom and dad are staying home ! Mom is going to try to do her wrapping (baking comes next weekend - daddy has too much of a sweet tooth to do anything too early !) I love wrapping day :) Whenever there are scraps, I get to take them to decorate my cage !

Loving Christmastime ! Have a good day :) love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
Didn't realize that it was 'too breeding time so yes, should definitely err on the side of caution and not give Chicklet anything that might compel thoughts of nesting. We imagine Chicklet would savor those rare times she is allowed a taste of things like birdie bread.

Don't normally get power outages. Glad of that. Guess we're spoiled as if lasts longer than a half day the parronts feel like going bonkers. Did we tell you that one of us fell off the perch the other night? Mom thinks it was Pearl but after seeing that no injuries just quickly got us recovered and back to sleep. Not sure if that was an earthquake or just encroached on each other accidentally.

Happy Tuesday - we have pouring dumping drenching rains all day today ! 2-3 inches of it - and it's supposed to be COLD - only mid-30's with "feel like" temps in the 20's ! It's the worst - the wet cold !

Tuesdays are mom's long days - at least she gets to take her kids to the school's book fair today - but it's drama club day . . . mom is teaching the kids to mark their script books today - once they're started, she and the other coach will start the casting since last week was auditions. They're doing a western ! Won't that be a hoot ?

The other thing mom never really noticed before us 'tiels is birds standing on one foot to rest the other one. Not counting flamingos that is.

Sun is shining today but still some clouds out there. Dad heard something about rain for Wed/Thu and that it'll be strong and not to be surprised if the power goes out. Nooooooo! We went thru that last week when it wasn't even raining or overly windy! Guess mom has gotta make sure her phone, ipod and Kindle are all charged up. No power means no internet, no TV, no lights!

Sounds like the flock enjoyed that birdie bread. Does Chicket get to have birdie bread? Seem to recall she got put on some special diet? Hopefully no more eggs for her.

How did it get to be Monday already ? Weekends go by much too quickly around here ! At least we are all decorated so while mom and dad are gone it'll be pretty. Yesterday when they went to the g'parronts, they left on Christmas music for me :)

The folks got the g'parronts tree up yesterday - dad dragged it up the stairs and mom fiddled with the lights. G'ma was going to do the decorating last night. So they were home by 3:30ish to play with me !

Now back to school . . . just two more weeks ! Have a happy Monday ;) love to all - Cookie

We hear woodpeckers more than see 'em around here so not sure what species they are. The wild birds are fun to watch. Until mom got us 'tiels never really noticed that they groom themselves or each other.

Have to agree that us normal 'tiels are the best even though we don't really care to look in the mirror. Can look at each other and know that's same as a mirror, right?

A bit more rain yesterday but today seems to be mostly sunny and clear. Haven't seen forecast for tomorrow but dad thought he heard weather geeks say more rain is out there so we'll see. Not sure walking on squishy ground would feel safe.

Guess what ? Even though the tree is up it's not all the way decorated yet, mom hangs an ornament or two each time she walks through the living room - after I get my kiss of course ! Plus, there's a good dent on the big pile of cards on the dining room table - mom hopes those are finished later today !

Today though, the parronts are heading up to see g'ma and g'pa. G'ma wants lights around the front door and yesterday was icky and rainy all day . . . but busy, so busy in fact that mom didn't cook last night. Daddy went and got a PIZZA ! YUMMY in my tummy :)

  Hi, Cleo
Always seems to be a bunch of things around the price checkers that need to be put back to their home locations. Even if things are correctly labeled or signed many shoppers still want to check to be sure which mom understands as she does the same but she will put things back instead of abandoning it randomly.

Still getting a tad bit of rain. Currently sunny but still clouds out there so could get more later. We know what you mean about not trusting forecasts. The parronts call 'em the weather guessers, LOL.

Not sure what northern flickers look like but any that sit still long enough to admire would be fun to enjoy their antics.

  Hi, Cleo
Even without any distractions from shoppers it still takes awhile to get things done. Sometimes can't find something. Sometimes things are messy and have to fix it or redo the price tags so they are correct.

Don't recall hearing the jays around here being very vocal. Do hear lots of bird chatter so it could be them and just can't see who it is. What a fun thing to watch the jay trying to keep all the peanuts for himself but ending up having to share. Know your mom and others will continue to provide as know it the winter harder for wild critters to find food.

Some areas did get flooding and mudslides but we're fine here. Might rain today as it is overcast. Would love to get out of the drought but need lots more rain first.

Hooray for Friday ! Mom has a half day - her school does them the first Friday of each month for the faculty meetings. Today, though, the PTA is setting up for a craft fair tomorrow so it's been cancelled ! That means mom is coming home early ! Unfortunately for me though - she's meeting her sister to go shopping ! I just hope there's a bird store on the list !

The tree is so pretty and shiny and sparkly when it's up, except it blocks my view of the bird feeders outdoors so I can't be such a good watchbird . . .

Mom'll be glad when the overnight shifts are done and she can go back to her mornings. Doesn't miss having to be on the register or do returns though, heehee.

More rain yesterday. Finally tapered off in the afternoon so know we are definitely all caught up for this season. Might rain more today which is good as the reservoirs are no where near capacity and that'll determine us getting out of the drought.

Haven't seen the jays around here lately. However, every couple of days mom'll put some peanuts out and they always disappear. Probably the squirrel as see him occasionally. Must be awesome to see the jays sitting on the railing looking inside for your mom to put peanuts out. Do they call out to her if she doesn't see 'em?

Our mom isn't sure how busy the store is since she's working overnights and doesn't see how many shoppers there are but does see how much things are messed up and needing to be straightened up before putting up new tags or sale signs.

Must be cooler here too with the rain but also slightly humid so doesn't feel bad. Nice that you had some sun. Always looks nice out then even if cold. No flooding near us, whew!

Rarely gets below freezing here so hard for us to fathom how cold your temps feel. Forecast to get even lower? Yikes! Sometimes our Jan is warm then gets cold in Feb and Mar. More rain today and forecast for a big storm on Tue. Supposed to be heavier than the Sat one. With the dry periods in between less chance of flooding.

It is always nice to have the sun out even if it doesn't help with warmth. At least it isn't so dark and dreary then.

Busy, busy for mom at work. Lots of sales which means lots of signs to keep track of and swap out and update as things get moved around.

  Hi, Cleo
There are designated workers who retrieve items from the back that are too big to leave displayed. It'll be the swingsets, playhouses, big pools, etc. There's a section of the store with photos and description of the big items are and tickets that are handed to the cashier and then the pick up guy will bring it out. Always good to check prior to selling if the item is actually in stock and in sellable condition. Sometimes things arrive damaged.

That is good roads are maintained but know that black ice can't be seen and just have to be careful. Imagine it would be scary to go slow and still slip or slide.

Raining again today. It was clear yesterday afternoon so had time to drain or soak in. Less chance of flooding that way and mom didn't see any overly flooded streets driving home today.

Back to our routine today . . . marketing and laundry. At least that means the parronts will be home. And turkey sandwiches - yummm ! With more feetball ! Mom will continue with her decorating - and I'll continue to grub snacks and attention - maybe put in my two cents !

  Hi, Cleo
Yeah, very tiring to be constantly on the go helping people find things. One shopper asked mom if a playhouse was in stock for 50% off. A check on the puter claimed there was two so had the pick up guy check and found it was correct so had him bring it out to sell. Less than an hour later another shopper asked for it and while waiting a third asked about it but that was all there was.

Woke up to rain this morning. Such a welcome sound. Hopefully nothing floods but mom knows which sections of road near us tend to do that as does have a lil shopping to do later. Must be scary to have icy roads as probably hard to see that it is icy? What do people do? Drive a lil slower?

Must be hard to get a fair share of scritches when your mom only has two hands. Ours has enough with only two of us and if we're sitting on a hand then only has one left! Still, we know your flock gets plenty of mom time as just being in the same room is attention too. So wonderful that Sunny is 19 and hope he lives a long, long time.

Well, mom stayed home yesterday and cleaned up from Thanksgiving ! I kept tossing toys to the floor to engage her in games of fetch :) After cleaning she started decorating - at this point everything is done except the tree !

Today she's taking g'ma out to do a little shopping - she's got just a couple more presents to buy. If she gets home in time she'll have daddy bring the tree and ornaments up from downstairs . . . otherwise there's always tomorrow !

Have a great day - stay warm :) love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
Think those silly folks standing in line early are mostly trying to get some sorta electronics deals? Not sure. Since mom didn't have the opening shift not sure what brought people in. Know that the games for $3 were mostly gone by midnight and other items she didn't see stacked up anymore so must mean they sold out too.

Always good to come home from a long day of work and not have to prep and stand in front of the stove and cook and just fix a plate and stick it in the microwave.

That is very smart of Jazz to play dumb and not stop the chewing so he must be retrieved by your mom. Know that is perfect opportunity for asking for a scritch. Hope all the flock enjoyed the eggstra millet to celebrate Jazz being royalty for the day.

Overcast today so hope it means the rain will be arriving soon as forecast.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Hi Cleo
TGIF ! I hope your Thanksgiving was a happy one :) I even got to have my very own dish - a people dish ! With a bit of everything I'm allowed to have ! ! Then a stole a bite of daddy mashed tators when he wasn't looking !

Today will be a quiet day after Landon, the g'nephew goes home after his sleepover . . . he sure is a night owl - mom's not ! har har har - guess who'll be taking a nap later ? Last night as soon as dishes were done and company gone, mom decorated the hutch - the holiday dishes are out and on display - the Christmas tablecloth is on the dining room table :) More to do later today - goal is to finish this weekend !

Did you see the nutrition article on the front BC page ? My vet wrote that ! See what I have to go through between Dr. Hess and mom ? Everyone watching every bite I take !

Enjoy your day and if you get a chance go try your wing at Name that Tune on page 231616 ! love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
If people didn't show up to shop during the early hours then stores wouldn't open. When mom started the store opened on Black Fri at 6am. It got pushed earlier and earlier over the years to the current 5am Thu. Those that want to go out and shop and those that don't stay home or go out on Fri or the w/e. There are always specials only on the Thu or Fri to lure people in but if one didn't want those specific things then why bother?

The parronts are loving all the leftovers. Yumminess without having to cook, heehee.

We don't always stop when told to stop pecking at forbidden things but if one of the parronts approaches us to remove us then we skedaddle on our own. So, Jazz has taken to chewing on a frame Joey favored? Probably saw it was already started.

Hopefully the snow isn't making any of your roads too messy for using. Can't be fun to spin or slide out of control due to slick or wet roads.

Sometimes we will cling to the side. Hovering over the food dish is frowned upon. We have a water bottle and use it but we also like the water dish. Normally we don't sleep over the dishes but aren't very happy to have a slightly early bedtime when mom has the midnight start time.

Have a great day, wing hugs and a vote, Pearl and Silver.

  Morning Cleo
Luckily our snow stopped at about 8 inches - today is our Thanksgiving here in the states and dad's parents are coming as well as mom's sister and nieces . . . mom spent yesterday in the kitchen baking and will be getting ready the turkey shortly ! YUM !

Mom usually starts decorating as soon as everything is put away ! Tonight ! love Cookie
