When Mommy first went to say hi to me in Fantastic Feathers, I jumped to the front of hmy cage and followed Mommy around inside of it. I knew it was meant to be, I just had to tell her about it.. Awards

Hi! My name is Lil Cricket

I am a Cockatiel from Goose Creek, SC.


9 years old   M


Monkey biscuits and nutriberries. Although I don't know that I am supposed to eat nutriberries so I just roll them on the bottom of my cage.

On Mommy's chest and shoulders... On Daddy's feet and on the arm of the couch...

When I don't get monkey biscuits and when I get stuck in my cage for too long I get cranky.

Her ratty hair and pregnant belly. I like Momma's ears and glasses too.

I like to be scratched on my neck and I will keep my head down until Mommy or Daddy scratch it. I also like to talk to crickets outside and sounds just like them (Thus the name...)
I also like to churp when I eat monkey biscuits.

I fly therefore I am

"I believe I can fly"

  A Day for Giving Thanks <~)
Hello Lil Cricket (and the new baby!). Rose’s Mom here (~.~). Rosalie has asked me to deliver a Thanksgiving Day message to her friends, and I must admit that I appreciate the opportunity to visit all of you as well. She brought many blessings and much wisdom to my life, and I have been only too happy to share both with you all. So without further ado, I give you Rose ~~~~ ONE MONTH AGO Thanksgiving day, I left all of you, My Beloved Friends, for the Rainbow Bridge. ~~ You have been so warm and loving, thoughtful and supportive. I am at a loss for words (Hard to believe of ME, isn’t it?!) to express my deeply heartfelt appreciation for your friendship. I have been able to read all of your blogs on the ‘HeavenNet’ up here at the Rainbow Bridge, and I have seen all of the lovely tributes you have created, and the expressions of sympathy you have shared with each other, as well as with my mom and family. I have had the honor and privilege of receiving other friends into our flock up here, “just this side of Heaven”. And we want you all to know that we are well, whole, and happy to be awaiting the day together when we are each reunited with those of you who have loved us. ~~ I did a little meddling in Mom’s business a few days ago (as was always my habit), and made sure that she saw some words that would make her stop and look at Thanksgiving a little differently than usual this year. “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.” ~ Kahlil Gibran. ~~ There is much to be grateful for this year. Mom has been a part of a journal writing class at one of her bible studies, and her homework for this week is to ’write about things that you are grateful for’. Her group leader left everybirdy with this reminder: “Gratitude is the forgotten factor in happiness!” That must be why we wish everyone a ‘Happy Thanks-giving’. ~<~)~ [You can see a pictorial version of Rose’s message in her photo gallery at the bottom of her page, courtesy of her Auntie Amy, Me Morgan’s mom.]

  Good Morning, Lil Cricket <~)
Rose’s mom here. Rosalie is, once again, hospitalized. At this point, her life is not immediately threatened, although what we are dealing with is serious. I have posted a note on her page giving a brief explanation of what has happened to date, if you would like to learn the details. Please keep her in your prayers. Many thanks, Eva

Yesterday Mommy let me roam around the house... it was so much fun. I climbed up the side of my cage and danced around on the top. Then I went to my playstand and swung alittle bit. Momma keeps saying she is gonna clip my wings soon, but not if I can help it! I hate when she clips my nails... (Don't tell her but I need a bath...)
So anyways, about my day yesterday... I climbed onto the floor to help Mommy with organizing and filing papers but she was scared I was going to poop on her bills so she let me climb all over. After I got up her back I settled on her shoulder. Then I got her! Mommy was not happy with me, but she let me stay out. Then she gave me new food, not the vegetable kind but a fruity kind. So I sang her love songs for the rest of the day... I like the fruity kind a lot!
But that is it for me. This is lil Cricket signing off!

Come visit me, Lil Cricket.

  Bath Day
Well last night I got scared and Kd let me sleep in her room. But today I thought it would be a day filled with fun and playing. Instead, I was awoken and brought to the sink because Momma said I was a dirty bird. I don't like when she says I am a dirty bird. I liked the poop on my cheek, it kind of looked like rouge, I thought. But no, Momma didn't like my makeup and she didn't like the fact that I got onto my colored blocks and that they were wet. She didn't like my tailfeathers being green and red now, but I just wanted to look like KD.

But I do feel better now and I don't stink. So that's great. But that's all I have for now.

Come visit me, Lil Cricket.

I am not so good at typing with my beak but I will do my best. Mommy is here to correct my spelling errors. Today was not a good day for me. I just ate a lot. Feeling alittle depressed because Momma and KD were gone at the bird store without me and Daddy was in school too! And Momma and KD forgot to uncover my cage so I was all mixed up. And I ate all of my food, which was way too much for my little body. But maybe tomorrow will be better. I hope I make some friends on here too. I really need a girlfriend, that is what KD tells me anyhow. But I will learn from her and not date til I am 30 years old, It seems like a mess! (Just like the mess I leave for Momma to pick up and for Daddy to sweep up) But It's good for them. Well, have a good night!
