"Bob" says hi. Very creative name lol, not by me. But I guess it works, we don't really know his/her real name.
Bob was found outside on Valentine's Day. If anyone was in Wisconsin this winter it was frequently below freezing and sometimes lower. My school closed 3 times because it was THAT COLD. He has been staying at the pet store.
After 2 weeks we received no call from anyone missing their bird. I looked on craigslist, ebay classifieds, on here, searched google, nothing that matched him.
So now he is up for sale.
Sadly he is stuck in a parakeet cage. The pet store has room, I guess, but don't exactly take the BEST care of them. It is a pet store I guess. I come to see him every other day and take him out for an hour or more on weekends.
He is so very friendly, not even cage aggressive (but only to me hehe). He screams whenever I leave and he cant see me. He ADORES head scratches, and will mumble little things. I could swear he knows what "come here" means. He used it twice in context. He says something that sounds like "quaker" in the most adorable little voice. He is trying his very hardest to learn to give kisses. He will follow me around too and if I am gone he will glide down to the ground trying to find me.
However, Tony (guy who works in reptiles) has teased him, when he was in the back room and every time he walked by. He is now TERRIFIED of Tony and some of the other guys there. He will also get a little mad when other people try to pet him while I'm around especially if he's on my shoulder.
Sadly, I can't socialize him very well because of that. Kari (who mostly is the "bird lady") never liked the last quaker after he bit her twice (excepting cage aggression of course). And apparently she loves quakers o.0 This little guys bites me every day (not a BITE, just like a "hey I don't wanna get off your shoulder")
Ahem. *done with pet store rant*
My mom is hating on him since he got scared when she brought her hand up or something and bit her. Literally there was that => •• much blood. So she's like I'm scared he's gonna bite me... bleh. Not exactly helping my case to get a bird sometime.
I have been thinking about doing a bird thing for spring break if anyone read the macaw posts, I never got a reply.
They have a cockatiel that has been brought in by a man who had him caged 12 years, never trimmed wings or nails...the cage was absolutely FILTHY. It was the kids bird, and I can understand he didn't know but REALLY. The poor baby would scream whenever someone walked in the room up until a short while ago.
I will be helping out the little guy to become more friendly.
Also a lady donated ALL her breeder birds so there are tons of baby parakeets and if some are ready I will be able to hand feed.
So much stuff xD thanks for reading if you actually read all of it
Will post pics of everyone soon
