I'm just looking through your answers to the questions and I know you didn't have MG at the time. But now that you do, what are you finding the biggest difference is between MG and Tink? :)

Tinkerbell was a CONSTANT chatter box. MG just has his scream fits sometimes. Tink never came around to being hand tame, but LOVED to get out of her cage and roam about, she would put herself back in when she saw fit. MG is a hassle to get back in his cage. She never played with her toys, ever. All she did was eat and chirp. She ate alot.

I miss her... I wish we could have had a necropsy done, but on Christmas Eve nobody was going to be open for days...

Bump >>

:) Dropping by to say hello to you all. Sadly it has been almost a year (Christmas eve) since Tinkerbell passed. MG is thriving, he is my love. And hubbys CAG Quinton is adjusting to hubby's new job. We thought we were going to have to find him a new home with a male around more, since hubby is working off now Quinton was slipping into a deep depression> But we have worked through it and I am convincing him that I can be his friend too, plus hubby talks to him on speakerphone. Hope you all are doing well!! Would love to catch up but not much time lately, feel free to drop me a PM if you want to chat!
