Hubby and I hit up the pet store on Valentine's Day. We needed some fish filters for our tanks and we rarely get out of the fish store without grabbing up a few more fish.
Well just as always I spent time looking at all the other critters around the store, especially the birds. It dawned on me how long I've wanted a bird, however, I've never bothered to take myself seriously because hubby wasn't a real fan.
I adore birds. I love sitting out on the back porch in the warmer months watching and listening to them. So, Valentine's Day I decided, I am the one home all the time. I'm the one who feeds and cares for all the little lives we have in our home. Why not get a bird? So I did :)
Meet Valentino. He spoke to my heart as I watched him in the cage with the other birds. The others seemed to overwhelm him. He seemed to like being in the cage with them, but he really wasn't a fan of playing with the others. I just felt a connection with this lil guy.
So he came home with me and our bonding began. He is now eating off my hand and fingers. Occasionally, he sits on my fingers. I play youtube vidoes of other Parakeets singing and he sings with them. I researched information and found out some interesting things about these little birds, such as they love fruits and veggies :) Maybe he'll help me eat healthier all the time seeing as I will be keeping this stuff in the house :)
He has stirred up the furbies curiosity for certain and for some odd reason he loves to sing when the dogs are close by LOL. He doesn't shy away from the dogs which I found strange seeing as these guys can be overwhelming to most humans. Since he doesn't shy away from them, when I'm gone from home Valentino's cage goes on the shelf my son made me last year for my birthday. It's high and none of the furbies in the house can get to it. When I'm home however, it he sits at the desk with me. We chat and converse and he watches the room around him, getting used to his new surroundings.
Well it is almost time to get this day going.
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
