I keep thinking I'm going to be getting back to work & in the swing of things and then I get distracted. I may have mentioned her before, but I have a cockatiel named Cocoa who has been with us since she was a baby - making her somewhere around 14 or 15 years old. Up until now I have lived in a few different places in Boston and none of them have allowed pets, so she has stayed at home in Connecticut with my parents. This is the first apartment I've lived in that allows some pets - so on Tuesday my Mom drove her up here and she has been chirping and tweeting non stop. It's funny because she really only likes me and knows instantly when I walk in the door. I'm really excited to have her here and now have talkative company during the day.

i love birds! i'm thinking i need to get one of my own. i just "bird-sat" my grandmother's birds (Herman & Merlin) for about a week, and i had no idea what good company they'd be with their tweeting and cage-climbing.

I gasped when I saw Cocoa the cockatiel! I am a bird fanatic, and in April of this year my beloved cockatiels Hobson and Clencie passed away. He was about 15 like Cocoa, and his girlfriend was an incredible 25/26 years, posibly more. I am still amazed she lived as long as she did (longer than most wild birds I imagine) and always thought she would go first. He passed away suddenly and within six days she joined him. I am still amazed it went the way it did. My mother said it was a true love story.

so cute! My mother had a a cockatiel when I was growing up... it didn't like me very much. Hehe. Adorable though...

Oh, so homesick now!
I'm Australian, and on the farm where I grew up we would get large flocks of cockatiels and budgies and cockatoos come through every rainy season.
They have so much character, and they 'talk' so much, they are lovely companions. I hope you have fun together again!
