I'd previously owned two darling hairless rats. They were my babies. But when I purchased them I was uninformed about common health problems among rats in general and particularly among the hairless breeds. Rats are very prone to mammary tumors and I've since learned that having them spayed will cut down on the chances of them getting them, but I learned this all too late. My rat began getting a tumor and I was very upset. I took her to a vet and it costed $150 to get it removed. As she was recovering the other began getting them and we didn't have the money and before long she developed another tumor and it got so bad I had to have them put down the day after my birthday. I was so heartbroken. I wanted to be able to care for them, but didn't have the money to save them. It was the worst feeling imaginable. My baby was the sweetest rat ever. It broke my heart. I waited a good while before I thought of owning another pet. I'd go into pet stores and look at all the adorable little critters and then I would wonder what unknown health problems plague which species and I was very worried to get another pet and fall in love and then lose another one again. I did some research and certain parrot species are said to live 20+ years. This was Heaven-sent news! But I'd never been so attached to a bird before- I wasn't sure what to expect. I went to our local pet store and talked with a knowledgeable woman there about what bird would be right for me. I handled lovebirds and parakeets, parrotlets and even a few medium-sized parrots, but the Cockatiels seem the most congenial of all. I was decided, but their Cockatiels were $120. That was too much for our low-income family. So I began searching... But to my surprise my Great Aunt that lives down south decided to gift us with one. She sent me $75 to find a good Cockatiel and I scoured through ads on Craigslist not finding any that sounded right for us. When I was just about to give up, a new ad posted: Re-homing Young Cockatiel- he'd been hand-raised and the first 16 weeks of his life was spent with a young couple and a child younger than ours. The ad described him as friendly and loving and I'd found my Cockatiel- cage & all for $75. He was more of a blessing than I could've ever imagined! He and I spend almost all of my down time together whether I'm washing dishes or watching a movie. I'm still amazed at the love that comes from such a tiny feathered creature!.

Hi! My name is Louis Bohran "Bird-Bird" Entrikin

I am a Cockatiel from Shawnee, KS.

"Bird-Bird" which is what I go by.

4 years old   M

Cockatiel

Millet Sprays and anything Mommy's eating that she'll let me get my beak on!

Mommy's shoulder, Mommy's computer chair, My favorite fat perch in my cage and on top of Mommy's fish aquarium.

Do not mess with me when I'm eating and do not mess with me when I'm irritated or you'll get a nasty nip!

Mommy gives the bestest scratches!

When I want attention I say, "Com'ere Bird-Bird" and I give sneaky kisses! Ha Ha!

When certain songs come on he'll head bang to them if he sees us dancing along!

He'll do just about anything to get to his Mommy when he wants some love and then if she doesn't give him luvins he'll pull on her earrings until she does.
.

"Bohran" is Aborigine for "Boomerang" and I think that pretty much says it all. :).

  Hi,
Just flying by with a vote for a fellow 'tiel. Saw your fister Lady Gray's page and thought we'd visit and learn your story. We are 2 male 'tiels, but we always have to be together. V4U. Have a great day.

Come visit me, Pearl & Silver.
