||Eleven years old|
||Nova Scotia, Canada|
has been with me since he was a baby. He loves to be out on my
shoulder, and loves to "preen" my hair. He also likes to sit in the window and
talk to the birds outside.
Once we had asked our neighbors to look after him while we were gone, so on
our way over with the cage, the top fell off and he flew out. He circled the
house 'til he got tired and we finally caught him. He's been through a lot. We
also have cats, we have always had cats. Cats aren't the only animal with more
than one life - we say Cheddar has at least nine! We have let him out and
forgotten to put him back in many times and one time had gone into town. When
we had arrived home, the cat was just pulling him out of a crevice with his
paw. Good timing, as we were able to save him! I hope after that he knows
that the floor is not a safe place to explore when mom and dad are away.
He's such a funny, cheery bird, and a real survivor! At eleven years old, he's a
member of the family, not "just a bird" by any means.
