  Ichi, Kiwi, and Mav's mom here!
Hello everybirdie! We have gone thru some big changes over here, hence our absence from this place for so long. We lost another flockmate, Tequila, leaving Maverick as the last of my keets. I have taken the profiles down of my babies that have crossed the rainbow bridge, to leave room for any new editions to my flock I may receive, which brings me to my latest news. As you may have heard on the news, Michigan's economy has become horrible, and alot of people are suffering, as well as the animals. Being a michigander myself, I have witnessed first hand the hard times we've fallen upon. My husband lost his job a few months ago, and both of us have been struggling looking for work. That, among other things, put a huge strain on our relationship, and alomst tore us completely apart. Thankfully, we were able to open our eyes and hearts, and work thru our problems and stay together. It was after going thru all of this, and seeing the growing number of homeless and abused pets, that I realized I must do something to help. My husband and I are opening our home to unwanted parrots. I have placed an ad on craigslist to help get the word out, and I'm spreading the word on here as well. Now being that we are hard pressed for cash, and don't have that much space, we are asking for any help and assistance people are willing to give. Donations, volunteers, advice, anything of that nature is welcome. Remember that I am not doing this for myself, this is for parrots. Tho it does give me great joy to care for every lil bundle of feathers that comes my way =]

  Ichi here!
We've been away for awhile! Sorry about that. We've been looking for a house and we finally found one! We don't for sure have it yet, but we are in the process of buying it. The seller accepted our offer, but we are waiting to hear back from the bank on whether we for sure got the loan or not. It's looking good so far tho, cuz our credit score is amazing. It's been really crazy tho. We've been negotiating prices and there's another buyer interested in the house too. But the realtor tells us that she doesnt think the other buyer is going to get financed. Still tho, I'm on the edge of my seat every day waiting for the phone calls finalizing everything. It's such a beautiful house and it happens to be the only house we found that's perfect and that we love. So everybirdie cross their fingers or pray that we get this house. So that we can do things like take in rescue birds that need a home. And have another baby. Mom's been hit with the baby bug really bad. She can't wait to have another one! And we ALL can't wait for this stress to be over.

  Sad news everyone
Nyah Lee passed away last nite. Her age and sickness finally caught up with her. She had stopped eating yesterday morning and just sat by her food dish and slept all day. And then later on that nite, my fiance told me I should come to the kitchen where her cage was, and when I saw her, she was laying on her side at the bottom of her cage. So I picked her up and held her in her last moments. She never looked so happy to be in my hands than she did last nite. I cried so much after she finally passed. I don't think she felt any pain cuz she was pretty much paralyzed. I miss her already.

  Hi Cali
Oh your colors are just so brilliant. Must be cause your a fishers lovebird. I am marked the same as you but my colors arent as bright as yours are I dont think anyway. Happy thanksgiving to you Cali and your family too. I am glad we can write and Gus writes to your brother then. Strange things are happening here at our house!! Mom took that big bird out of the fridge tonight and baptized him in the sink in water. She kept changing the water and dunking him in it too. I thought she was going to lose him a few times too cause he would almost slip out of her hands a few times. Ole mom is a tough cookie though and she hung onto him!! Now if that little feller had any chance mom took care of it with the drowning in the water then to finish him off she put him back in the fridge. That bird sure has had it rough and you know I don’t think its over yet!! Hihihi. Pecked your vote button on my way out and please stop in anytime you can. Of all the gifts life could send, the best is having you for my friend!! I love ya!!! Your friend to the end, Chi chi

Come visit me, Gus --Chi chi ♥ RIP & Chi chi RIP my sweet girl..

  Hey Cali
Thank you so much. Mom has been searching desperately for another mate for Nyah. Only problem is that Nyah is 7 years old and rather than getting a younger Budgie and starting this endless cycle of Budgies all over again, mom wants to find Nyah a mate that is around her age. And that is very hard. Cuz you know Budgies dont live the longest. Most of the bird stores around here only have baby Budgies, and none of the rescue centers that we know of have any Budgies at all. Mom doesn't even want any more Budgies, but she feels bad for Nyah. She doesn't want Nyah to spend the rest of her days lonely. On a happier note, Mom has decided to keep Yoruichi (the stray kitten). She has been making lots of progress, and is becoming very cuddly. And our momma kitty even lets Yoruichi nurse off of her! It is so funny to watch 6 lil kittens and then a random big kitten all nursing at the same time. We know for sure that Yoruichi was a stray now. Mom suspected it, but was comfirmed yesterday when we saw one of Yoruichi's siblings outside. We offered it a home here, but it ran away. This one is way too wild to be in a house, and it looks like it can hunt on it's own, so mom isn't too worried about it. But we left food for it outside just in case! We hope you have a good day, here's a vote. -Ichi

  Hi Calie!
You are a cutie!!

Wow! Me and MoonBeam have been so very busy! Sorry for not writing more often!

Guess what!?! We have a new 'baby' sister. She is 5 1/2 years old and she's lots bigger than me. Her name is Pretti, the African Ringneck. She really likes to bite my mom, but not my dad, too much. She likes to talk with my mom, but she likes my dad to talk to her. She's a funny sister! She makes 'Kissy' noises and says 'Pretty Birdie' and lots of other stuff. Don't worry, I still get most of my mom's attention (LOL). Pretti helps me with that by biting my mom ;-) She's actually coming around though and not biting as furiously as she used to a couple weeks ago when she first moved here.

Anyway, me, MoonBeam and Pretti have been out and about outside with our mom and dad every so often when the weather's nice and not raining. We're all having lots of fun now that it's summer.

Well, take care! I'll try to write again soon!

  Hello everybirdy.
Today was grooming day for my flock, and everything went as usual until it was Cena's turn. When I went to fish him out of his cage, he just stood still and let me pick him up. I was dumbfounded and became very worried. He is not a people bird at all, and never stays still for me when I put my hand in his cage. And yet today he did not move at all. So I picked him up and found another shock; the poor bird is the skinniest he's ever been. Like sickly skinny. I brought him to the bathroom where I do the grooming and set him down in my lap where he just sat there. He always tries to fly away from me though he knows he won't get very far. And today, nothing. When I held his wing open to clip it, he didn't put up much of a fight like he usually does. Then when I was done grooming him, he burrowed into my hand and let me preen him. Something is very wrong and I am very worried. The last time a Budgie of mine did this, it was Sweetpea, and he died a couple days later. I don't have much money right now to take him to the vet, and I don't even know that vet could help him if I did take him in. He's always so full of life jumping around and doing mating dances with Nyah and chirping and reguritating food for her. And for a regular Budgie, he's quite big. But today he is so small and quiet. I need everyone's prayers on this one, because I have a really bad feeling that Cena's time with us almost gone.

  Hello everyone!
Ichigo here! Mom has taken in a new baby. She's a 3 month old kitten whom she has name Yoruichi (from the anime show Bleach). We think she is a stray because of her aversion to people. We heard a meowing noise 2 days ago outside our slider door, and when we looked we saw this beautiful gray and white kitten. She saw our cats sitting by the door, and ran over to them and starting meowing more and rubbing all over the screen. Mom felt bad for her because she looked so lost and confused, so we opened the slider door for her to come in. Well she ran away. But she kept coming back wanting attention. So the night ended up with mom leaving our slider door open while she meowed at the kitten (you have to meow to her because if u say human words, she runs away) until she came in. Then Mom snuck out the front door, and ran outside thru 2 freezing cold sprinklers and shut the slider door from the outside so that the kitten would not run back out. Once we got her in, she hid under our entertainment center for most the night and day. And then last night she got brave and came out meowing to Mom, and she walked into the kitchen where mom was sitting and she ate some food. And this morning she is out and about again being very curious and still meowing at mom. Mom says her heart aches because Yoruichi is the cutest lil kitten she's seen in a while. So we will work with her and her get her used to people and make her very sweet so that we can find her a new loving home (we would keep her but we already have 3 cats and Mom don't want any more).

Ichi here! I have discovered my new found love for destroying my skin brother's plastic baby spoons. Mom was feeding the skin brother some oatmeal and i walked acrossed the keyboard of the comp just now and grabbed the spoon and began chewing. So mom got me my own spoon to chew on and boy is it good! I have also found my love for strawberries. They are quite tasty! Well I'm off to chew and explore more things, squawk at ya later!

  For Neo and Ichi
Ichi's mom here. I was going through my pictures today, and I found some of Neo (I posted them on Ichi's page). I miss him so much, and sometimes I think, maybe if I had tried a little bit harder, somehow things would have gone different and I would've been able to keep him. I know that there is nothing I could've done to prevent my dad from being the way that he is, but I was Neo's protector and I feel so guilty that I couldn't be there for him. I hope he is in a better home now. I hope that his new family loves him as much as I do, and that they cherish every minute of time that they have with him. Because time is so precious, and you never know how long it will last. This Saturday I finally get to bring Ichigo home. I am getting so anxious because I've been parrotless for so long and I just want to be able to hold that bundle of feathers again and get my eyebrows and hair preened. And laugh at the crazy antics of my baby Conure. Neo, I hope you're doing well my friend. Where ever you are. Ichigo, just 4 more days buddy! Mommy is coming to take you home.
