||Five years old|
||Budgie (Undulatus Melopsittacus)|
my name is Freddy Flintstone. I'm the husband of Wilma
and the neighbor of Paule which were already Pet of the Day.
I am about five years old. I'm very green and my beard is very yellow like
an citron. In former times I wanted to be a model, but after the
education of our baby-bird Mariechen (on the left of the picture [by the
way she's a guy]) I gave up this aim and I became a budgie-social worker
in our cage. My job is to integrate Paule, which is still a little bit
odd, because he lived too long only with humans. Besides that I perform
an anti-aggressive-training-program with Wilma, because she butchers us
when we sit between her and some budgie food. While doing these very
important things I haven't had much time to care for my feathers.
Sometimes I look terrible, especially when I've lost my
beard-point-feathers while moulting. On these days I dream of the bird
contests I missed, but never mind... Finally I would like to tell you,
that Wilma hasn't lost any weight in the last year because she is very
lazy and hungry. Hasta la vista babies.
Since April this year I was very ill and all my doctors (specialists for
pets, birds and homeopathics) didn't know what exactly I suffer from.
But now I'm on the way to get healthy. It was a hard long way to go
(fly). My owners took me almost thirty times to many doctors. I had to
swallow foul-tasting medicines which didn't help and one of the doctors
plucked my belly. But I stayed optimistic. I have still a little hole in
my belly because I had a abscess, but I think in a few weeks it will be
closed again. Before I got ill I could have been a great star because I
had the nicest plumage in the town. But that's past. The little monster
on the left is Mariechen, which is now called Poldie. When she got older
we detected that she is a male budgie :-( ; for that reason I persuaded
my owners to buy a female budgie. She's called Lena (Lenchen). Therefore
I call to all the pets in the world "Believe in Yourself and stay
