Mo was our first budgie we adopted a few months back, he was very nervous when we first got him.
He is roughly two years old and had never been out of his cage his WHOLE life.
It took some time and working with him; after speaking to some feathery friends online we had decided to clip his wings just for safety and to help with training and bonding with him the first little while. We found that it made a huge difference in being able to train him to step up and not be intimidated by hands. We are now happy to announce that he steps up fairly comfortably, however, there is still a long way to go for him to be completely confidant, but he is doing amazing.
Luna is our recent adopted buddy, she is only 6 months old and is very friendly.
Shes already learning to step up and is very comfortable hanging out with us, for short periods, of course. We just brought her home the other day so I’m amazed at how quickly she’s warming up to us.
Can’t wait to share their silly stories with you guys!
Oh my goodness it’s been too long and we’ve missed you guys SO much! We’re glad to be back and have SO many updates and stories to share, so much has been happening the last few months; we can’t wait to share it with you all ❤
So me being little and fluffy I have a hard time in the snow, and well I just plan dislike going outside; especially when the snow is almost as deep as my mum is tall! So I tend to try and hide away when mum or dad calls me to go out for a pee; they always seem to find me though, I just don’t get it! I thought I was the best hider in the house, they just seem to be too clever!
Maybe if I don’t look at them; if I can’t see them, they can’t see me, right?
Nope, they definitely can’t see me at all this time, not a chance! Or so I thought, soon mum was laughing and dad came around the corner and laughed too.
Dang, I really thought I had them this time.. well I guess outside I go.
Hi fur family, it’s been awhile! Sorry we’ve been away, mums been terribly unwell the last few days. “That time of year” she says; but she’s all better now, we really need her to work the computer for us.. we just can’t figure it out.
Anyways Great seeing you guys can’t wait to see you all again soon!
So recently there has been a huge amount of noise in our backyard, and mum wouldn’t let us have full access to it because of that glorious “mess” as she called it; Soph and I just see a heavenly large pile of sticks.
We have had to cut down a major issue in our backyard, mum and dad both said it was too dangerous to keep and unfortunately our last standing poplar- over 100 feet tall I may add- that’s what mum said anyway, the thing was huge okay mum says 100 feet but that can’t be right, it must have been a billon Sophs tall it was SO big!
After a few days when the tree guys left, we got to run around and play fetch with some sticks. It was so much fun, Soph really didn’t like the noise when the guys were here though; I myself, have heard it before when we had to have the other one cut down. I’m not a big fan of the noise mind you but I don’t get too over worked about it, Soph did for the first day but then she was okay, she just didn’t understand what was going on at first.
Anyways, the issue mum and dad had with the tree was the branches- HUGE, tree sized branches- were falling off from the top. The last BIG storm we had in the fall, another huge branch fell and broke the neighbours fence. Mum said that was the last straw, that the tree is going to really hurt somebody, or worse.
So mum said they looked and looked for the perfect tree cutter person… oh what did she call him again… oh that’s right and Arborist. So they looked for a while, because it was so expensive it took some time to find the right one, some people even quoted $4,000 CAD; mum says it’s a very hard and dangerous job, that’s why it’s so expensive. But during the winter time “slow season” the arborist called it, he gave us an amazing deal at $1,400 CAD he even mulched all the .. “brush” mum called it and took it away- Soph and I were pretty peeved about that, he took our sticks! But at least there is lots left over, and he may have cut up the biggest stick, but at least he left us all of it’s pieces. How dare he, who takes a dog’s stick I say! Mum says not to be silly, we don’t want the mess, and I asked her what the heckle jeckle was messy about those wonderful sticks?!
But anyway, Soph and I will get over it I suppose, I just can’t wait to get at that big giant monster of a stick, oh boy oh boy, I can’t wait.
Well Fur fam, Thanks for joining us we missed you!
After a long walk, accompanied with a run around our yard; my sister and I tend to have our regular afternoon nap. Normally by that point we are so tired we just crash where ever we see fit, mum says she finds us in some pretty hilarious sleeping spots and positions.
Mum says I always seem to crash on the couch with my head over the edge, almost upside down, and just out.
As for my sister she tends to sleep in our red chair, that mum has in her office; typically Soph’s tongue is sticking out, and she usually is running in her sleep. I asked her one day what she was chasing in her sleep, she couldn’t remember.
Other times, when we’re REAL tired we snuggle on the couch- Soph usually takes up all the space, but I really don’t mind she helps me to stay nice and toasty.
**Yawn* But I think it’s about that time I take my nap, See you again soon fam!
Whats the weirdest or funniest sleeping, spot or position you fur pals have been in? Let us know in the comments!
