Mom went to the pet store to buy food for her birds when she saw me and I gave her THE LOOK. It haunted her until she came in and bought me on Sept. 22, 2009.

I was BOTD on May 19th, 2010 and September 23rd, 2011!

Hi! My name is Cleo

I am a Normal grey Cockatiel from Nelson, BC.

Not yet

7 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
Merry Christmas to the flock and your mom. Thanks so much for the card. Mom only managed to get a few done and sent out. She was working the overnights at work and often babysitting during the day so sleep was at a minimum. Things will be back to normal after the w/e (when there will be returns).

Been getting some much needed rain around here. The parronts did some last minute shopping and mostly it rained around 'em. Sunny in between. Mom just wrapped up the gifts a lil while ago and put 'em under the tree. Can't wait to see how the grand likes opening presents.

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

  Hey Cleo !
Can you believe it's 2015 already ? The year went very quickly ! When does your mom start putting Christmas away ? My mom is going to do her dishes this weekend and some of the knick-knacks in the dining room - then maybe the kitchen . . . the tree probably next weekend - she has to do it a little at a time so she doesn't go into withdrawal ! ha ha ha

Here is the "translation" into modern English of Auld Lang Syne. There is no doubt that Robert Burns did it better in the 1700's !

Days Long Ago

Should old acquaintances be forgotten
And never be remembered?
Should old acquaintances be forgotten
and days long ago.

For days long ago, my dear,
For days long ago
We'll drink a cup of kindness yet
For days long ago

Happy New Year - love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
Happy New Year to you, your mom and the entire flock.

Without asking mom got new year's eve and new years day off! Not that the parronts go anywhere, heehee and didn't stay up to watch the ball drop.

Today they will be making dad's family traditional meal as soon as dad returns from the store with a fresh head of cabbage and some sauerkraut. Not a dish our mom likes but dad loves it so he'll have lots to eat for a couple of days.

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

PS: Thanks for liking the new pic. Mom just made it quickly yesterday and wasn't thinking that the background should've been dark!

  Happy Boxing Day !
I had a great Christmas - on Christmas eve, mom's sister and her two nieces and g'nephew came over. They all love me and played with me and even brought me THREE boxes of tissues ! ! ! Happy shredding time coming up !

And I discovered that SantaBird is a very forgiving fellow cause there were all kinds of presents under the tree for me :) Me and daddy got mom a new camera for Christmas so watch for more pictures - I don't seem to be as scared of it as the old one ! It even has a video feature and mom took a short video of me eating last night - remember I told you that I like to swing and eat at the same time ? Now if she can figure out how to upload it you can see for yourself ! I rested and played with my new toys in my cage while mom and dad went to the g'parronts yesterday - they were home by 6:00 so I had a special dinner :)

Today will be quiet - mom is going to work on thank-you's. Plenty of Christmas eve leftovers so no cooking - me and daddy will hang out with the tv ! ! Maybe even some popcorn :) Have a great day ! love Cookie

Merry Christmas to you, your mom and the entire flock. Hope you all had some yummy things to eat along with the new toys. Soon mom'll be getting the bread making started. Good thing for the stand mixer that'll knead it for her. Before that she had to do it by hand 15-20 minutes worth! Gonna smell so wonderful here soon.

  Merry Christmas Cleo !
And who are you ?
Not an angel, no.
Nor Herod.
Perhaps you are a magi,
mapping the miracle on a chart of stars;
a shepherd trading sleep
for a chance to see a golden child
in swaddling clothes;
a Simeon
who has hoped for a lifetime to find
the one called Emmanuel, God is with us.
Or are you like Mary,
prayerfully waiting for the King of Kings
to be born in you ?

Well, He is here !
Sing ! Sing ! "O, Holy Night."
Run toward His Light !

love Cookie

  Hi, Cleo
The parronts kinda figured out where to hold the remote to make only the lights they want to turn on to come on. Not bad if the lights on the tree turn on or off but if someone was at the sink and the lights went off might not be very happy.

Thanks for liking the new pic. We got that from Dixie and Kallie for guessing a song theme at Name that Tune a while back.

Skinsis got a humidifier for the grand as a newborn since the baby kept getting chapped lips. Not sure how often they use it now but guess it helps. Sometimes our dad mentions dry skin so might have to consider getting one as can't hurt.

We got an early present as the parronts found us a new water dish. The old one is bent at the top and still works but they'd been looking for a replacement. So, they found one that was just a tad too small in diameter but dad put some sorta sports tape underneath the rim so it would fit.

Oh, about the pooping in the water dish. We stopped that and started doing it in the food dish! Yikes! Mom wasn't happy about that. So, for a few days she stuck a thick piece of paper towel over the top of the food and it caught the mess and didn't leak thru. Dad rarely changes our food so she wanted to make sure it wasn't a mess if she wasn't home yet. Though the overnights are now almost over so all will be back to normal.

Good for you getting all those eggstra scritches.

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

  hi Cleo !
Hooray for vacations ! Yesterday the house was so warm and cozy and smelled so good with the baking ! It was even pretty outside - it snowed on and off all day but never amounted to anything but a dusting on the ground - just prettiness ! Best of all, I was out ALL DAY ! Then there were sketties for supper ! Does it get any better ? Yep ! It does ! Another day just like it today ! Only today is bacon rolls and since they use a double rise dough, mom will be here all day again !

Anything left to be done will be done today - tomorrow company comes, Wednesday night is here with mom's sister and nieces and g'nephew, then Christmas Day with the g'parronts . . .

I'm trying very hard to be good :) Even after a bit of screaming yesterday, I quieted down when daddy brought me my bath tub :) I hope you have a good day too ! Christmas love - Cookie

  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.

  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. . .

Counting on my talons now the days till mom is home ! love Cookie

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.

There's a lumpy stocking with my name on it ! ! ! Mean ole' mom won't let me near it though . . . and I tried ! She kept distracting me with jingly toys ! Daddy's is lumpy too - and she won't let him at his either ! What's with that ?

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 . . .

Final week of school before mom is on vacation till January 5 ! Woooo hoooooooo ! Have a fun day and be good - Santa Bird is watching ! love Cookie

  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.
