Kiwi My Re/Rescued Quaker
Posted 03 July 2010 - 08:15 AM
I'm dealing with a little bit of empty nest syndrome, and I have to say my little Kiwi has helped me so much. It's nice not to feel so alone when the kids are gone, and he keeps the house from being so quiet.
I've noticed Kiwi does this funny thing that I had a question about. Every time he seems comfortable he starts bobbing his head. It's repetitive, and then he will stick his neck out, repetitive also.
Kinda like: bob, bob, bob, bob, stick neck out...
bob, bob, bob, bob, stick neck out... repeat..
It reminds me of one of my children.. I know this is going to sound wierd, but when my little Macee was growing up when she was very tired as a little girl she would rock herself to sleep sometimes. She rocked everywhere, it didn't have to be in a rocking chair. It was a self soothing kind of thing. So when I see that Kiwi starts doing this head bobbing thing that is what it makes me think of. Then he kinda starts closing his eyes. Is that a normal thing for quakers?
I have just enjoyed him so much.. and watching him.. and learning from him.. has been such a joy. I am very thankful for your website.
Oh and something else kinda crazy.. I have now lost about 10lbs since I've gotten Kiwi! When you have a bird, and you think about what you need to feed the bird, you start feeding yourself better too! Very much a win/win situation!!
Sorry I wrote a book.. just had a lot to post!
