Today Someone bought a bird!

You never know what a day will hold. At 11 this morning J & I headed to the massive pet shop. Typically I’m not for these types of places, puppy mill potential and they remind me of the summer I killed a lot of fish. I didn’t mean to, I just wanted a pretty fish tank…but I digress.

So we spent an hour and a half learning all about different types of birds and their personalities and talking abilities. It was very interesting and the staff was amazingly helpful and informed in their specialties. Turns out they also board birds at the shop and the manager needs to be there to be certain we don’t take home someone else’s bird. So we head back to the shop and wait until 3. Actually J started calling and looking for the manager at 2. Once there we held these 8 week old Lovebirds. I was so afraid to crush him. Actually you can put them in your pocket. They love it and feel secure. At least the person they bond with can do it.

So several hundreds later, J had a cage, several types of food, a mountain of toys, and a very quiet Lovebird. This isn’t him but it looks very similar. Oh and the best part, he’s a Valentine’s day present for her boy. It’s so exciting!

I am so insanely jealous! I've wanted a Lovebird for years. I used to have parakeets when I was younger and I really miss having birds!
