Hi! My name is Rufus

I am an Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet from Franklin, MI.

Rufie

14 years old   M

Indian Ring-Necked Parakeet

Fresh fruit, almonds

The windowsill, looking at all the nice trees outside.

Being petted when I don't like it. Hmmph.

It's not my owner! I'm the owner, my "mom" is the ownee!

I have none. I am perfect. Well, does listening to ABBA count?.

Never fear, Rufus is here..

  Hi there!
We have pecked to each other a couple of times, but mom's computer flopped out and is hopefully better now. So we are catching up. We wanted to drop off a vote and a hello and hope all is well with you! Starr

Come visit me, Beepy, Starr & Kiwi.

  Oh
Mums majoring in history and social policy. She was doing a politics essay today. Good on you for doing that - I wish my mum had scientific tendencies as she would love that. My mum has very late nights working and studying. She didnt go to bed until 3am Wed night and 4am Thursday night but we're off to sleep shortly!

Come visit me, Gabi (Passed away on 15/08/11 - sadly missed) & Jaspa **Shortstop of Tiel Terrors Baseball Team**.

  Hey Rufus
Im back on line again finally - mums been hogging the computer for her essay. Ive been impressed by her dedication but she didnt get home until 10pm tonight finishing it at work. Mum had a look at the various ringnecks on the internet - she thought you could only get blue and grey ones! So does your mum think that albino ringnecks are more cuddly? Mum doesnt mind too much as she has me to cuddle her so another bird might have other characteristics that I dont have like talking! Guess you're looking forward to the weekend. Have flapped you a vote, Jaspa x

  Hey Rufus
This is a quick message tonight as mum needs her laptop to do a university essay (she had an extension as she works too and was juggling me being unwell at vets). I'll send another message tomorrow or Friday. Hope you're doing okay. Mum said she looked up albino ringnecks on the net at work and there are so many kinds of ringnecks she never knew! Have flapped you a vote, Jaspa

  Your mum's a tooper, Rufus
Twice a day for handfeeding isn't too bad afterall. I'll get mum to google what lutino ringnecks look like. Mum wants a green or blue one! Do you like snuggles Rufus? Mum heard ringnecks aren’t so cuddly but like being with their owners. Good on your mum - what a trooper, Jaspa x

  Hey Rufus
Is Donni a ringneck too? Mum saw a green ringneck on trademe (like ebay) today but it wasn't a baby. Sounds hard work handfeeding a baby bird but mum said she reckons she'll have a go one day. I might even be able to help and keep the birdies warm. I like having mum to myself too but would like a pal to keep me company sometimes. Hope you're all good, bye for now, Jaspa

  Hey Rufus
You're such a handsome lime green that my mum asked me to flap you a vote. In fact my mum is thinking of getting a baby ringneck at the end of the year - do you have feathered brothers or sisters? Im a bit of a softie with my mum so she owns me but sometimes I put my foot down, well gotta go, hope you visit me, Jaspa
