Actually, my girlfriend was the first one of us to meet Lucia at our local pet store. On a hunch, she told me that she had seen a bird she thought would be perfect for me. At this point in time I wasn't sure if I was ready to become a bird owner yet, I wasn't sure if I had enough time to dedicate to training and caring for one. I decided to go ahead and take a look anyway, I figured what could it hurt? Well, we got to the pet store, and here was this adorable little female 'tiel, just blinking the sleep out of her eyes. I got to within five feet of her cage, and she perked up, shuffled around a little bit, and gave me a little bird look that said "You're taking me home, right?" She stole my heart right then, but as hard as it was to do, I walked out of the pet store without her, telling myself that I didn't feel like I was ready for the responsibility of taking care of a bird. Walking out of that pet store empty handed seemed to make sense at the time, but I was still pretty miserable. To take my mind off my misery, my girlfriend and I went to a little antique store just a few doors down, looked around for a little while, and then left again. As we were walking by the pet store, I looked through the window, and there was Lucia, looking right at me. What could I do? I went back in the pet store, picked out some toys and a cage, and walked out of the pet store in a much happier mood, with one happy little cockatiel in tow. Since I'm still living at home with my parents, Lucia is actually living at my girlfriend's apartment with her two birds, a male 'tiel and a peach-faced lovebird. But it's working out just fine, I spend most of my free time there anyway, so Lucia and I still get to spend a lot of time together. Sometimes I almost wonder if I made the right decision that day, since finding the time to spend with her can be difficult on some days. But then all I have to do is take a look at my little charmer, and I know I made the right choice.. Awards

Hi! My name is Lucia

I am a Cockatiel from Prairie du Chien, WI.

Lu-lu, Little Charmer, Noisemaker, 'Cia

10 years old   F


Sprigs of millet, tortilla strips, the occasional carrot

Anywhere near her Daddy, on her playstand

Anytime I leave the room

He teaches me fun things to whistle, he give me lots of time out of my cage, he laughs when I do something silly, and he scratches my head (which, by the by, I GREATLY enjoy)

Hanging upside down and flapping like a maniac, chasing my girlfriend's male 'tiel around their playstand, whistling the Andy Griffith theme, and a sometimes unfortunate tendency to turn up the volume a bit too high.

I'm cute and I'm not afraid to use it.

  Hi from Fortune, St. Patrick and Lonnie
Hi Lucia, Saw you on Pip's page. Maybe yoku have some good advice for me..Hi Patrick here, Mommy let me fly laps through the house until I started using the aquarium for a potty. She said that is not nice for the fishes. I kept doing it and when she tried to get me to step up off of it, last night and I bit her hard. She was bleeding bad. I thought it was funny. I laughed my self silly. Then I got grounded...I mean Literally. I flew, and flew but she cought up with me when I got tired. Guess what? She clipped my flight feathers so now I have no way to get on the aquarium... It is near the Lovies cage. Now I can't pester them either. Life is no fun....(frown) She made me sit on her shoulder. I did give her kisses and she accepted my apology...But, I am still grounded. Shucks. Do you know anything to make my feathers grow faster? Patrick

Come visit me, St. Patrick D'bird loves Ruby Sue, Lonnie, Slate and Mica, Fortune & Cotton Ball "I'm Tiki's Girl".

  Hi Lucia!
Yeah, Mommy noticed you're becoming a darker grey. I still think the yellow thing is going to eat me even if Mommy says it won't. I don't think she's lying, I just think it's fooling her. Jack's asleep, but he chewed the vote up before he left. ~ Pip

Come visit me, Pip & Jack.
