   Hi, I'm Angel because I'm white and this is my soul mate, Casey.

    In April of 2012, Mom went to the local pet store to buy some parakeets. She wanted two so we would have company. There were so many to choose from in the cage. Mom picked me first because she never saw a white parakeet. The sales person suggested Casey because he had a white head to match me. At the time, we were too young to be able to tell if we were male or female. Much to Mom's joy, I turned out to be a girl and Casey is a boy. She is hoping I will lay some eggs, but none so far.

    The other week, we had a big scare. Casey was sick. He was all puffed up and slept a lot. Mom contacted a bird vet. Since there was no discharge in his nose or bottom, he suggested to keep him warm and give him sugar water. Mom also got on line to several places. They all said keep him warm, and one said to give the bird "Pedialyte" like you give to babies. Mom gave him some in an eye dropper several times. That seemed to help. Casey was always eating and he was hard to catch when Mom was going to feed him, so maybe he wasn't real sick.

    I am so in love with Casey, I don't know what I would do if something happens to him. We are hoping for a long and happy life together. I never left his side while he would sleep. Animals have feelings, just like people. Sometimes Casey and I peck at each other a little, but we stick together.

    By the way, Casey seems to be doing better now. It's been ten days since he was at the vets. He eats the food with Boost in one dish and Avian Plus in the other, and drinks the water with the Tonic in it. He still sleeps more than me, but that might just be a guy thing.

   Your friend, Angel
