New Family Member, Tovi

Saturday, April 12, 2014

Since last I was on Spark, two new feather and fur kids have joined our household.

The sad news is that my sweet parrotlet Emmitt died while I was in San Francisco this summer. I was heartbroken; he was such a wonderful little bird.

In August, little parrotlets hatched at the bird farm, so I reserved one. It was hard to wait for him, but I would go visit him when I could. He was such an adorable baby, it was hard to leave him there, but I had to wait until he graduated to solid foods.

See what I mean?

Now he is 8 months old and a cuddle bug. He loves to snuggle into my hair while I'm reading, and loves to give me kisses.

He is already becoming a good talker. So far he has "pretty bird." "good boy," "what's up?" and "night night" in his repertoire. I think I hear him practicing "bye bye" but he hasn't said it very clearly yet.

Tovi and I just went back to the bird farm and bought a little Easter basket for him.

It's filled with all kinds of fun stuff for a mini parrot!

Not long after Tovi joined our family, a kitten adopted us, but he gets his own blog post. emoticon

Tune in next time!

    Ever since I read the Enid Blyton books as a little girl I've longed for a parrot like Kiki -- it's wonderful that you've adopted another and of course how lucky for Tovi to join your household!!

    That is so cool. I love birds but have never owned one. Two dogs and a cat seem like enough for now. ....

Take care, Jan

    I am anxious to see the new kitten. emoticon As for the newest member of your family, he is adorable. What a sweet, sweet boy and already talking, so clearly smart as well.

emoticon BTW, love his little ducky in his Easter basket. I have several as I sort of collect them, because they are just so cute.
