||Calgary, Alberta, Canada|
is Henry! He was adopted from the Humane Society about a month after one
of our budgies, Daisy-Bee, suddenly passed away. There were other budgies at
the shelter, but Henry chose us.
Henry was originally someone else's pet but he managed to escape. He was
found when he flew onto someone's lap in a baseball field, obviously in an
attempt to be rescued. After adopting Henry, we could tell that he had been
abused in his previous home, he was fine with sitting on any part of your
body except your hands. We believe that his previous owners may have grabbed
at him or flicked him.
Henry has been with us for about six months now, he has really changed and
developed a crazy personality. He is best friends with our budgie Archie and
tends to follow him everywhere! Henry also eats a lot and tends to get his
face dirty, so when we try to give him a bath in the sink he flaps around and
pretends to have a bath on the countertop. He also never stops singing and
gets mad if you talk over him. He has overcome his fear of hands and loves
riding around on shoulders with Archie. He has come so far and we truly love him!
