I went to meet Petey today with my three daughters. He was such a ham, going through his vocabulary for us Debbie (Peteys first Mom) was so nice and I really enjoyed chatting with her. The girls enjoyed snuggling with the dogs and meeting the horses (other than Cassi who's allergic to horses...she had fun playing on a REALLY tall swing )
When we got Petey home, we opened his cage and sat back to see what he would do. He flew out and landed on Arianna's (my 13 year old) head. He stepped up onto my hand without any fuss. He hung out with me most of the evening..sharing my pasta for dinner and really enjoying some scratches around his head and neck. (Lots of "pokies" from molting.)
I know it's probably just the honeymoon phase, but so far Petey has been a real sweet pea and joy to have here. I think he's going to fit into our family perfectly

Day 2 with Petey...what a sweetheart! I introduced Petey to the Zupreem pellets that I feed my other babies...he checked them out, but was more into his seeds. We'll keep working on it
Petey seems to have decided that I belong to him. He's extremely sweet with me, smooches, snuggles etc. but he's kind of leery around the kids...especially my younger two. Still no aggression, even in his cage. He REALLY doesn't like going back into his cage. He flies away screeching every time we come close...I swear it almost sounds like he's laughing at us
Petey is starting to communicate with out other birds...he's been calling back & forth with them...I can't wait for the day they meet!

Petey's been especially helpful..."helping" me with books while I read out loud, and saving me from those mean old tissues that are attacking my face
Petey has been my co-pilot, riding around on my shoulder and he loves to snuggle. He has been such a blessing this past week

I hope you and your children will feel better soon!! The flu can be so nasty.
Ah, sounds like Petey has indeed been a blessing this week. What a sweet guy. I'm so happy you were able to give him a home. He sure is a treasure! Would love to see some new photos when you are feeling up to it.
