She was an abandoned bird , left in a pet shop that had closed. now one wanted the pets left. After finding the owner. I purchasedher an what was left. She was very neurotic when I got her. Very Afraid to be left alone, or in a closed cage. Her cage is never closed. She she knows I will never leave her for long periods. I always tell her when I will be back. As I leave , she screams "wait come BACK". "I love you". She is so precious. I love her so much.. Awards

  Hi Ruffles
I just got word that you drop in. It's good to hear from you again. What have you been up too? My mommy has been busy with my other birdie roomies lately. I filed a complaint but it didn't do much good. We are going to have babies again from my budgie roomies. My mommy gets to overwhelm sometimes with it all. But she does still take time to spend with me and give me hugs and kisses. I had to chuckle the other day, my mommy is funny sometimes because she forgets things more since her fourth mini stroke well, the other day she was giving me hugs and kisses and when she does that she gets a face full of my feather dust on her face. Powder face answered the door forgeting to clean off her face. I bet the person at the door that what the hack. I'm glad it wasn't a cop they probably would a thought she was a druggie or something. Anyway the person didn't say anything mean time I am back in the room having a chuckle. I wonder how she would feel if I called her powder face......ha ha ha ha. Well, got a go, thanks for droping in here's a vote for you today. We too's got to stick together and get in some chew's......

  Hello there Ruffles
Thanks for droping in. Boy, it sounds like you have lots a fun flying around. I love to chew on things too I wreck a few of my mommies wood crafts she put up she get upset but still loves me. She is always careful about the paint she uses incase I do end up there chewing. You know what Ruffles you look a lot like my other birdie friend in my room his name is Angel. You may of seen him before boy does he chew a lot a wood. Abd he screams loud when mommy leaves the room. I do too so I can't complain about that. I think if Angel saw your picture that you have of the close up and you tilting your head he would fall in love. Maybe mommy better not show him that picture. Well, I must go now my mommy wants to clean all the cages today. I think I make the most mess well maybe the budgies make more of a mess they really throw the food outside of the cages.
Stay away from those ballons they can make a loud noise that will scare you big time. They are such odd looking things though aren't they? They don't have any wings and yet they float in the air. I wonder how they do that!!! Here's a vote for you cutie. Angel

  Hi Ruffles!
I understand the boredom Thing. I lost my playmate, but Mom lets me watch Animal Channel while she's at work and it's so fun to watch that I hardly feel lonely anymore. My favorite show is Planet's Most funniest. You should check it out. It's real funny. Big Hugs!

  Hi Ruffles!
We have a lot in common. Mainly because we are both spoiled rotten! I've run out of things to chew up So Mom gives me all of her junk mail to chew up. Now she gives me all of her bank statements and other paper containing pertinentint information to chew. It's confetti after I'm done with it..... Who needs a paper shredder? (lol) Have good day!

  Hello Ruffles
Ive never seen a coyote or a skunk. They sound scary.Poor Littles, having to take all those baths. I Love baths but I dont think I want to smell like a skunk. You are so brave looking out for your family when you camp.Its good you have a trailer instead of a tent.Wild animals could get in a tent or you could chew through it.Do you sit outside in your cage after dark when you camp?Simon and I are both so afraid'f the dark. If mom has us out and it starts to get dark, we get very nervous, pull at 0ur harnesses, and scream. Darkness is roosting time.Our little brother Zak was outside once in his cage after dark with mom and he wasnt even scared.He is brave for being so little. Tell Litles not to be afraid, that you will protect her. It is so neat the way you two get along. Talk to you later McCartney

  Hi Ruffles
Hawks,How scary! When we go outside we always look up in the sky for them. When we see one we scream and mom takes us off her shoulders. Tell Littles to be very careful when she is outside because mom talked to a couple people on line whos doggies have been attacked by hawks. One was picked up by a Golden Eagle, and the owneer chased the bird and he dropped her doggie. We live in the city and dont see very many hawks but there are a few so we always watch. Mom is afraid of the bird flu also, so she doesnt let us walk anywhere. She carries us or we ride her shoulder. If by chance our feet touch the ground she has to wash them with sanitizer. I hate that. Simon doesnt mind his feet touched, but I try and bite mom when she washes mine. I never been camping before, Do you go in an RV or a tent? My brother Simon went once and said he had a good time because he was with mom and dad all the time. I have went places with mom and dad and stayed in Motels,but camping sounds much more fun. Heres another vote for you, have fun camping, McCartney

  Hi Ruffles!
I don't want my mom to go anywhere either. So she just tells me she has to go get peanuts when she leaves and goes to work at night. She lets me stay up all night and watch Animal Planet. I have a big cage, but I'm only in there to play with my toys. I like to chew on stuff. I chewed up all the buttons on all the remote controls. Mom tries to keep them away from me, but I always seem to find them some how. I'm always mad at my mom when she goes to work at night, but she makes up for it by giving me peanuts. She always shakes her head when she gives me fruit, becuse I like the seeds inside better than the fruit.

  Hi Ruffles
What cool pictures! You sure are brave and very clever getting the bones and hiding them. I got two furry friends in my domain but they stay clear of me becuase they know I mean business when anybody gets in my domain. I'll have to try more in talking because I know that would make mommy very happy. I guess I should learn to make chicken noises because I am more of a chicken when it comes to different things. Hey, thanks for droping in here's a vote for you my fellow too. Love you pictures. :)

  Hi Beautiful
What is that you have in your beak in the bottom pic? I bet it is part of Littles bed.{HaHA} Who is Littles? it sounds like she is one of those doggies. We dont have any of those here, but my grandma has one. Its name is Sadie and it kept trying to get me. I wasnt afraid though I just did a lot of hissing to make her go away. Maybe your Littles is friendly. That was smart of your Mom to set up a camera. Now you have to see where she puts it and then you can turn it off whenever you want to be sneaky. If my mom did that, I think I would chew it up. I have already destroyed three of human sisters cell phones, one of dads, one of moms, three remotes, moms little radio, chewed the knobs on her big radio, the molding around mom and dads room, and a few other things. I am so quick. Two of sissys cell phones I grabbed right out of her hands. Well I gotta go now, I am going walking. Simon

  Hello again Ruffles
Ruffles is a beautiful Cockatoo. Is she a Greater Sulfer CRESTED? That is so cute the way she says, wait come back. It reminds me of an amazon I knew from a pet shop years ago. She would say, "Come back, Emily loves you." If you did not come back to her she would scream real loud,"Nobody loves me Anymore." Ruffles was sure lucky to have found such a good home. I tried to find a rescue Too for about a year without any luck so I bought Simon as a baby. Hes been spoiled rotten since he was 3 months old. He thinks he is flock leader even above mom and dad. He sleeps with me and for awhile if I was on the computer to late he would walk across the floor {with determination}hop right up on my lap and biteme in the arm until I went to bed. I had to put an end to that by caging him until I was ready for bed. Its just so cute the way he thinks he is boss.He does have a sleep cage beside the bed for potty and in case he wants to sleep in it, but usually he sleeps on my pillow or on my shoulder.Tell Ruffles that Simon thinks shes a doll. Talk to you later, Raven and Simon
