is my bird Oscar, he's a Moustache Parakeet. I rescued him a few years
ago from a very bad situation. When I first met Oscar, he was in very bad
shape. He was extremely underweight, very depressed and was missing feathers
in spots and patches all over his body. The worst is that his beak was so long
and crooked, it nearly pierced his chest. Because of this, he couldn't
eat because he was not able to pick up his food. It nearly broke my heart,
and I just had to help him! No bird should be neglected like that.
Well, I have had him three years now, and he made a complete turn around. It just
took proper care and some love, and he blossomed into the handsome little bird
he was always meant to be. Owning a bird - even a small one like Oscar - is a big
responsibility. They need the right food, the right toys to keep them busy and
keep their beaks worn down enough, and they need love and attention. It takes
work, but it is worth it. And Oscar is a sweetheart now, too! He has made my
life complete and has taught me a lot. He is a wonderful companion and loyal
friend. He has changed my life, and life with Oscar just keeps getting better.
I wouldn't want it any other way.
