Back in 1984, my first owner bought me with money from the first artist teddy bear that she made & sold. Yes, I am that old. My leg band backs it up. I loved my first humans very much, but they passed away a good while ago. Their grand daughter had me for a bit & that was okay. She hand tamed me in my old age... something I never thought I could do... come out of my cage... but it was nice to come out. Then I fell in love with the pretty Lutino Cockatiel across the street & moved in with her. We were both kind of old, so we didn't have babies. But I liked singing to her. *sigh* She passed away one day. And I stayed with the neighbor lady. Then recently, the grand daughter of my original owners (the same one that taught me to come out of my cage) moved to a new, bigger place & wanted me back. And that's okay with me. She has all young pets that I try to fit in with. One is a very *clingy* Macaw who needs to take a lesson on self control & independence from me. The other is a spunky young cat with a weird pointy nose (I think she's a foo foo pedigree or something). And then there's 2-year-old Itchy... my pal. He's a Cockatiel too. Me & Itchy share our own bedroom that the human girl calls the "Bird Bachelor Pad". He talks to me a lot. And I sing to him a lot. The human girl says we compliment each other. He's young. I'm old. He talks. I whistle. And we both refuse to eat pellets & try to get as much millet as we can. But heck I figure if I made it to 24 eating nothing but seed, then I don't need to convert to pellets now. There is a lot more I can say about myself. 24 years is a long time to a Cockatiel like myself! But I'm trying to keep this short. So I better log off now. Goodbye new friend....

  Hello from The Konawa Oklahoma Gang
Hi Patrick here, Mommy made it home from church and the little skin niece is with her. Slate and Mica moved into the bird room wirh us this morning. They moved into a larger cage. Yes, they promptly escaped while Mom and Dad were gone. They wouldn't get out of the room and just ran around climbing on everybirdies cage to visit. It was great fun, until Mom put them up. hehe We want to drop off a vote for you and wish you a lovely day. Your friends, St. Patrick, Slate, Mica, Lonnie, Cotton Ball and Fortune........ (we will go hit the votey thing for your flockmates if you have any before we go visit other friends.

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