Awe, have you missed me? It has been a while since I have dropped by, and I apologize. Not a whole lot has happened in my life... aside from the decision to go forward with the long awaited adoption of my very first bird. Super exciting right? I know! So since I made the decision to go ahead and start the adoption process, it's all I can think about! I am so excited, and trying to think of other things. But that does not always work. You see I have been thinking about getting a bird for some time now, and now that it is finally in the works... I feel like a kid who knows something awesome is coming up, but does not want to wait.
But like a good little adult... I know that things will work out for the best, and the wait is very much worth it. I plan on adopting a bird who is in need of a home, not to purchase a baby from a breeder, or buy from a pet store who only supports breeders. At first I was unsure, but now I know that I want to give an unwanted, deserving bird a loving home. This Sunday (2/20/2011) my Hubby and I will be driving up to San Francisco to attend a Bird Care Class that this particular rescue has made mandatory in order to adopt from their rescue. I happen to think this is great, and I can not wait to meet these wonderful people, and get to learning more about fids! YAY!!
I have my eye on a cute little Green Cheek Conure who is currently known as Petre. I think I like the name, and it is a good possibility that if I am lucky enough to adopt him I will not change it. Unless I have the overwhelming feeling that it just simply does not fit him. And then we will see about a different name. Of course I have not met him yet, but from the description provided by the rescue/foster parents. He seems like a hoot, and super fun. I am looking forward to all that is ahead, the ups, and downs of keeping birds. It will definitely be a learning experience for me, and I am looking forward to every moment.
That's all I really have for now... but keep in mind that after I get to adopt, and bring home our new feathered kid aka fid, I will be posting a lot about him/her and telling you all about his/her silly side, and crazy antics! Woot! I love sharing!
