I was living in South Mississippi with my Grandparents. Alex "flew his coop" and ended up in our back yard while my Grandmother was in the garden. She caught him & my 7 year old cousin took him. Then he decided (with the help of his Dad) to give Alex to me. I love all animals & they knew Alex would have a good home with me. I later moved to Wisconsin to be closer to my Sister. Alex came along & we were happy there, but Momma was missing all her family, friends & other pets back home, so we moved to Kentucky!. Awards

Hi! My name is Alex RIP

I am a Cockatiel from Corbin, KY.

"Alexander The Great Cockatiel"! Alex is the short name. My new nickname is "Sir Alex Poopsalot"!

11 years old   M


I like my treat bar and millet. I also like grapes, apple, peach, watermellon, scrambled eggs, broccoli, corn bread, pasta, eggnog & cheerios. May try some other cool stuff soon!

I will hang out any place that has a mirror! But, my most favorite place to be is with Momma!

I hate when Momma leave the room. A sneeze scears me! I also dislike hands in my cage, but we are trying to work on that! I don't like cats much (they want to eat me), but dogs are cool.

I love Emmy because she likes music too! She alows me to watch TV & listen to music all day. She takes great care of me & likes to talk & whistle to me! She even sings to me & with me. She held me in her hand as I passed away in the Spring of 2012.

I LOVE music!!! Momma made me my own playlist on the computer that has to stay on all day till time to go to bed! I like all kinds of music, like country, pop, bluegrass, classical, celtic, & oldies. Momma said I'm a great "kisser" too!!! I have some videos on You Yube now! They are under "irishdancingfl- ower"..

Music Rocks!!! Sing & dance often...even if no one else is around. ***check out my videos on YouTube-irishda- ncinflower***.

Rainbow here! It's been a long while since we chatted. Let me tell ya, it's been a long while since I've spent some quality time on the BC chattin' with lots of birdies. I thought today I'd get out my long list of friends and see if I couldn't fly by each of them, just to let them know they'd been thought of today.

I wonder how your life in KY has turned out. I'd be curious to hear what's been happenin' in your life lately. My summer was spent enjoyin' a lot of sunshine and gentle breezes in my backyard parrot pen. I spent so much time outdoors this year that sometimes the papers in my cage were hardly dirty the next day... mom sort of like how easy that job became. Now that it's cooler I'm of course back in the house most of the time, whittling away at paper, wood, and cardboard, makin' up for all the mess mom didn't have to sweep up in the summer!

Hope your fall is off to a fantastic start. R ('>

VOTE4U, WOW!!!! We are so, so happy to hear from you!! We miss you and think about how you and your Mommy & family are doing. Sorry to hear about your harry sibs, it's very sad!! Mommy has been working too much and then spends any extra time with us!! Libby is still a work in progress! I have taught her a few words so far. She says "what cha doin?, gotta go sleepy, unhuh, Louie" I have started saying Libby, sometimes, too! But when I give her kisses she still trys to bite me. She even got me the other day. I was on the outside of her cage telling her sweet words and kissy noises but when I reached my beak in to kiss her she turned her beak sideways and grabbed on! I thought she was going to pull me through the bars....eeeek! So now I run before she gets me now! But we keep each other company during the day now, she'll come around, I hope! Mommy joined a bird club and they meet 1 time a month an I get to go, a lot of birdies go, too! I have seen all sizes & shapes, I have never seen before. I even started giving out kisses and talks and everyone loves it, he,he,he!! Mommy makes her yellow snugglies for the meetings cause they always have raffels to raise money for the club. Well, Mom says it's sleepytime. Thanks for your nice visit, make sure you keep in touch, we will also go over to facebook!! We miss you all and think about you often!! Love ya, Louie, oh yea, Libby, too!! XXXXOOOO Give your Mommy nice kisses from us!!

  Hey There
So sorry to have read about your cat. What last couple of weeks! We are finally moved into our new home. Mommy and Daddy moved us to a new house. I have a new bedroom. Baby's & my cage used to be in Mommy and Daddy's bedroom. Now we are with the rest of the flock in our own room. The finches got moved from the dining room and Skippy from the living room into the bird room. Yup we have a special room in the new house. It has windows facing the east, south and west the door is off Mommy's room. It is awesome. Today Mommy got the internet hooked up. She was having withdrawals (tehe) But we are back now. Here's a vote and a hug for you.

Come visit me, Skippy *06-05-06*, George *10-2-01*, Baby *6-26-07* & Sassy *4-4-01*.

  A very sad day at our house!
Well, today is my cat sister, Boots, last day of life. Her blood sugar problem has become so bad that there is nothing the Vet or my family can do for her. She has been sick all weekend long. We are all very sad here. Even though I'm not much for cats, she was a very sweet cat. She will be missed very much. Please keep Momma & our family in your prayers. Thanks, Alex & Emmy

Come visit me, AJ & Alex RIP.

  Hey Alex
How's it going? For all of us here in Oshkosh, it is a beautiful day. Mom is home and the gkids are here. Mommy has been very busy with cleaning up after the basement flooded, being on jury duty and gone for the weekend. How you liking KY? Baby and I got moved way upstairs. I have a different cage :) It fits better in Mommy's room. Mommy also brought the doves up. the cats were being pests and Mrs Dove wants to lay an egg. We were really glad to hear from you. Have a great day. Leaving a vote and a birdy hug. Sassy

  Hi Alex,
guess what mum just saw on her way home from swimming? A whole flock of yellow tailed black cockatoos, feeding in a tree! She was totally mesmerised & watched them for a good while.....perfect photo moment, but no camera at hand!!! She'll take her camera next time & wait for them. As soon as she gets pics, she'll post them on my page.
The other exciting news is: she'll get her laptop back on Wednesday. Looks like everything's going smooth for a change! Mum's cooking rice noodles again tonight, but she covered them up while they were soaking....i tried to get in, but the foil was in the way! Spoilsport!!! Can't bird have any fun around here anymore?
V4u & a big hug,
Jivu ♥

We are so glad the Lord blessed you with a safe trip to your new home. Good luck to your Mommy when she starts her new business. Take care now. I finally got a few minutes on the computer. My skin sister is using it almost all day, 12 hours! Here's a vote for you. Birdy hugs.

  Glad You've Arrived Safely!
Alex! Welcome to your new hometown. Glad it's given you a WARM welcome! Your trip sounded like quite the adventure; up early, drivin' through Chicago, nappin' in the car for hours! Your KY family will surely be a fun one, what with all those different critters. Should keep life interesting! Just think of the stories you'd get to hear if your mom did start a Pet Sitter Business; dogs, cats, birds, rodents... you'd get to hear a different bedtime story everyday. Thanks for lettin' me know you arrived safely. Here's to many happy experiences there... R ('>

  Hi Alex,
mum won't have a computer for about 7-8 days or more.
It has to go into repair today, since it's been playing up very bad! Lucky it's still under warranty for a few days.
Take care till we can blog again! Mum will get withdrawal symptoms, for sure!

  Hi Alex,
how are you? My good friend Buddy & his fiblings Clyde & Tiki from Ocean City MD, asked me to spread the word about their mum Kathy. She's been in hospital for serious bowel surgery. She had many complications & says, that she's been to hell & back! But finally she was allowed to come home. She's still very weak & has a lot of recovering to do. Buddy is so happy to have her home, but he's wondering why his mum can't pick him up,like she normally does? Well, she's still too weak to do that, after all he's a big cockatoo! So,if you got a minute, please stop by their pages & wish Kathy well! She's such a nice lady & i bet, she'll recover even faster if she gets all the support from you! Thanks a zillion! By the way, have a great w/e!
V4u & a very big birdie hug,
Jivu ♥
