Hi! My name is Oscar

I am from Milford, NH.

Butters,
Okka (how he says his name), Osca-D-gosca (another way he says it)


11 years old   M



Dried Papaya, Lafebers Vegetable Nutriberries, Green Seedless Grapes

He loves to sing and talk and dance on his shower perch. He also loves his "mommy time" on my shirt in the evenings. Sticking his head in his bell is his favorite daytime spot.

He *hates* lawn mowers, trucks, school busses, plows, and kids on bikes. He also can't stand anyone touching his tail because it upsets his balance.

I love to sing while she plays piano. I adore when she cuddles and sings with me and she likes to wrestle me on my back.

Oscar loves to shake hands while giving a sing-song "HIIIiiiii!" His favorite toy is his bell which he often wears on his head! He loves to say "Peek!" and wait for anyone to say "aboo!" and visa versa. He is a huge music lover and sings and dances to anything! He loves anything with a prominant beat like reggatone, dance or hip hop..

Paya?.

  Cabin Fever
Winter's long this year. Oscar is pacing in front of the balcony. I think he wants to go to the park but doesn't understand how cold it is out there or what all the white stuff is.

  Ode to Papaya - By Oscar
I love papaya
Its not hard to see
Here's all the things
"Papaya" is to me

Papaya is a nutriberry
Papaya is safflower seed
Papaya can be a walnut
All of which I *need*

Sometimes I just say "Paya"
And mom knows what I'm after
Because when she brings the wrong thing
I break out in wild laughter

Yes the fruit papaya
Is not any of these things
But you try saying safflower seeds
When you have a beak and wings

Come visit me, Moonbeam, Oscar, Cosmo, Loki, Kipper, Tofu, Lemondrop & Dobby.

  Oscar's Nails - Mom's blog
Oscar's nails are always a problem. He's so OCD over his little feet... always preening them and dipping them in water and massaging them. Luckily, his nails don't grow too fast. However, getting his nails down is always a trauma to him. No matter who does them, and that includes me, he'll baby his feet even more and whine and cry after his nails are clipped. This is probably because, unlike any other bird I've had before, Oscar's quick (or the blood vein in his nails) always grows right to the tip! No matter if you just shave the tip off, they will bleed and they will hurt the poor little guy. I feel like such a monster when I need to take him to get them done.

  Christmas Paya
The more Paya the merrier! Paya used to be just my favorite treat; dried papaya bits. Now I've discovered the wonderful world of shelled and halved walnuts!! Mom only lets me have one half a day because they're very fatty, but their soooo yummy!

  fennel cookie...
Mom says she's never had Fennel Cookie before. I haven't either. Maybe next year when the fairs come around again we'll both get some. That's a really good idea with the apple, cus you know I love sunflower seeds but I almost never get them. Still hooked to paya I see, lol! Well I'm off. Talk to you later.

  Fall color
So it's the end of the month, and fall is finally starting to settle upon us here. Summer went by so fast for me. I lost my second home and found my third. I've been with my new mom now for about five months and I've really started to settle in. The leaves are starting to change color. Lots of red, orange and yellow. It's very pretty in NH this time of year. Apple picking is coming to a close so mom is hoping to get some picking in soon (not that I like apples all that much, but they are one of Pippins favorites). The weather is surprisingly still very warm, but mom and I hear that is soon to change. Whether we like it or not snow is on it's way, brrr! We've has some baby birds come and go and now the house is relatively quiet again. I hope you've had a wonderfull summer and fall, and I'll talk to you soon. Ollie~

  Oscar Update
Oscar is still as "Paya" crazy as ever. But today he really deserves some. I decided against better judgement to read the Alex memorials today and, I'll admit it, I cried like he was my own baby! Oscar, seeing my grief tackled obstacles to get to me, kissed me on a tear and softly cooed "Awwww. Dont Crrrryyyyy. I loooove." It was so touching that I cried even more!! Extra paya for the first man I've seen who can say the right thing! lmao

  Dude!
There is so much cool food out there man, you gotta try it all! Mom hasn't given me much of anything that I don't like. Give it a try... I like almost everything, but have to at least try whatever mom is eating! Here's my vote for you today. Your girl, Carley

  Hello friend
Hello Oscar, how goes the addiction to paya. Have you decided on a twelve step program yet? Stay strong! Aside from that how have you been. I hope everything is well. It sounds like we're getting another thunder storm. Mom just had a family drop off a cockatiel and parakeet at the shop for adoption. They have lived together for years but their owner passed away and the people who took them found out their son is allergic. Fortunately a nice man who works with her is going to take them home (cross your fingers). The cockatiel layed some eggs down on the bottom of the cage, but I don't think they will hatch although the parakeet is a boy....LOL! Here is a vote, I'll talk to you soon.

  lay off the paya?
Hello Oscar, don't frett I love peanuts but my new mom will only give me two a day. She says I'm a porker... too rude! But I get a large variety of pellets, fresh veggies and fruit (wich I hate and ignore), pasta, and the occasional "healthy" table scrap. So I really look forward to the peanut when I get it. This is usually during training time. Even though I wish I had more peanuts I guess mom is just doing what will keep me healthy. Can't wait to see some more pictures of you posted. Here is a vote, stop by and visit me when you get the chance.

  Momma's getting stingy on the "Paya"
Oscar's getting more and more obsessed with his treats. It seems to be all he's interested in and I'm not entirely sure how to sway his attention. I've tried taking him out of the house to play and diverting his attention with other activities but still his little chiming voice says hopefully "Paya?". I switch up the paya to more healthy things than dried papaya, seed balls and nuts because I worry about his weight, but he gets mad when the "paya" isn't what he wants. I hold out on giving him some and he cries like an actual human child then throws a tantrum. It's rather funny actually... but hard to deal with again and again.
