  Thank so so much for voting me BOTD!
Sunny here! Comet gets a bit tuckered out these days so I am here to help him out. He is doing good this morning and took the rightful left shoulder of his dad this morning to read the newspaper. He didn't lose any more water weight overnight but he didn't gain any either. We are happy with that. Comet had a bowl of warm veggies this morning along with some hot cereal. A meal fit for a King! He didn't want to take his medications, as usual, but mom convinced him that being King doesn't mean he doesn't have to take them! He agreed and his loyal servant, mom, served his Royal Grayness his morning meds along with a bunch of kisses and head scritches! His Highness is here with mom to thank all of you for voting him BOTD! He is truly humbled by this honor and would like to pass along a huge thank you to King Floop for all his help and kind words.

Dad brought mom's favorite chinese dinner last night. Mom hasn't been eating well since the news and he wanted her to eat something. Along with the meal was a fortune cookie. Mom finished her meal and then cracked the cookie open. Guess what it said? You won't believe this! 'You will receive enormous support over the next week. Accept it graciously.' That truly fits how we feel about our BC friends. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the prayers, well wishes and support all of you have given us the past few days. Mom don't know where she would be without all of you by her side.

King Comet's loyal servant on his special day,

Come visit me, Sunny & Comet, dearest Comet....

  Thank you so much!
Sunny here. Thank you for your kind words at this time of sadness here at our home. Comet is showing signs of improvement today as his meds begin working. The vet told us that this week is crucial. We hope to make Comet as comfort as possible during his time left with us. We are humbled by all the support, prayers and words of hope and strength that everyone here on BC is giving us. It means the world to us!

Birdie hugs, 

Come visit me, Sunny & Comet, dearest Comet....

  Sad news from the cage...
We just got back from the vet and our beloved Comet has liver failure. He become ill on Valentine's Day afternoon and was taken to an emergency animal hospital. He has a few months at best. Mom is just devastated. Could you keep him in your prayers?

With a heavy heart...

PS...King Floop has moved up Comet's run for BOTD to tomorrow. We would be honored if you could vote for him.

Come visit me, Sunny & Comet, dearest Comet....

  Hi, Taz!
We are getting a little winter here, too! A few inches of glistening snow overnight! Everything looks so pretty again and not dead winter brown! We are doing good. Mom said once she finishes her blogs, she is heading out the door to do her errands. Looks like a lazy day around the cage for us!

Say hi to the flock from us!

Friends in feathers,
Comet & Sunny

Flying in with a vote for you! ivo! How's it going, buddy? Quiet here! Did you know that oversized rat, oops groundhog predicted six more weeks of winter? He needs to go in his hole and stay there.....FOREVER! Think spring!

Hugs, Comet

  Hi, Taz!
When Sunny needed calcium, the vet prescribed a liquid oral dose given twice a day. It worked wonders for her! Maybe ask your vet about it next time you go in! Gosh, we hate to see you suffer! So, anything new around your cage this morning? Nothing here. Just a quiet day on tap for us.

Birdie hugs,

Come visit me, Sunny & Comet, dearest Comet....

  Hiya, Taz!
OMG! You poor thing! I can't imagine having casts on your legs! How long did you have to wear them? Are you okay now? I also depleted my calcium but the vet gave me calcium shots plus I had oral calcium to take for two weeks after that. It was pretty yucky but mom said it was for my own good. Take care of yourself, Taz, and we hope to chat with you soon! V4U!

  Hi Sweet Taz
I do hope your mom gets to relax and rest after everything she has been thru this past couple weeks. I will miss you on the BC while they are away but your mom needs to recoup. Let me know when she gets back so we can blog each other again. Prayers for your mom and you. Maxi and flock

  Hi Taz
Dear sweet Taz. Yes a vacation is what your mom needs to get over the stress and the loss of loosing her sister. Are you going with her or staying with a birdsitter. When my parronts go on vacation we go to the birdsitter ( she was SweetPepper's and Kacey's breeder) and mom calls it going to birdie camp. We do get spoiled at birdie camp. Mom is packing up toys and treats now in our travel bags. We will be gone for about two weeks, last week of Aug-first week of Sept. I hope your mom is feeling a bit better. Maxi

  Hi from Maxi
Hi Sweet Taz. No matter what type of pet a human owns, if they are a responsible pet owner, they will take them to the vet for checkups no matter if it is just a little mouse. We birds are not cheap and we are like little people with feathers. We need to be looked after. Mom makes sure we see the vet 3 to 4 times a year and more if we have a problem. Mom loves us too much for anything bad to happen to us. I do sometimes yell at the vet because I don not like to be handled or bothered except by my mom. I'm stomping on your vote button as I go out.====ps; Can you help my fister SweetPepper. Mom has decided to run her for BOTW. So if you could stop by her page each day and leave her a vote I would really appreciate it. Thank You MAxi-----PLEASE VOTE SWEETPEPPER BOTW!

  Hi from Maxi
Hi Taz. My old bones are doing okay so far. The vet is very happy with how good I look for my age. My vet has known me from when I was an egg. I was hatched at my vet's office and raised by one of the employees there. I had 4 other fiblings. My family used to bring their parakeets to the vet, one keet named Petey was very sick and had to see the vet every couple mos. He was on medicine for his kidneys and liver. When he died my family waited a year and then called the vet to see if she knew of anyone who had cockatiels for sale. It just so happened the vets employee had me a my 4 fiblings but we wouldn't be ready to go to new homes till we weaned. I finally got to my new home at 10 weeks and here I have been ever since. I am spoiled, I run the house and I go where I please. I am small for a tiel, only weigh about from 78-83 grms. My vet keeps a close watch on my weight. I am feisty though so don't let my size fool you. My baby sister Kacey has a bone density problem. She gets calcium shots every 4 mos. She is a special needs birdie, she has a broken right wing and can't fly. I try and watch over her but sometimes she can be a pest. Well its late so I will say goodnite for now. will talk to you more tomorrow. You are a very sweet girl. Heres a vote for a pretty tiel. Maxi
