Farewell to Cutes

I'm so very sad to say that my precious
Cutes (the blue one) was not a healthy bird.
I noticed that she tended to pluck her
feathers out, breathe with her mouth open,
and not like to hop around.
Today I noticed she had a red and puffy eye
and that she was itching it against the perch.
I called the vet and he said it sounds like she
had a respiratory infection and needed to be treated.
I don't have the money to take her to the vet,
so I had to exchange her for another parakeet.
(Thankfully there's a 7 day warranty on them.)
I felt so bad and sad giving her back and
knowing that she's suffering. :( :(

Now that I've been able to read about how to tell
if a parakeet is healthy or not,
I chose a (hopefully) healthy new one.
I was going to name her Cutes in honor of the last one,
but she looked like something different...

I love her white colors!
So I took to naming her Fluff.

So now I own Fluff and Puff.

Fluff is still a bit shy in her new home,
but is a great singer and loves Puff!
Puff is still as lively as ever.
He's such a singer too!

Aww, sorry to hear about Cutes. At least you were able to remedy the problem without having to spend any more money. :-) God is sure good!

I'm so sorry about your bird! But the new one is pretty too!

Hey there, missed y'all today. Have fun - I'm going to assume you took Fluff-n-Puff with you. You know, I'm gonna have to find a new accompaniast now :-p

Have a fun summer! Oh, I was going to bring this tomorrow, but since you won't be here, I'll tell ya now. I was looking through one of my old hymnals (1926) and found a couple songs that made me think of you. "There's Not a Bird with Lonely Nest" - talks about the birds being in God's care and also "Sweet and Clear the Birds Are Singing" - which is more geared towards Easter, rather fun sounding. And of course, I tabbed them ;-)

Anyways, just wanted to share. We're keeping you in our prayers.

P.S. - you now realize who I have to share my music stand with, right? :-)

oh I forgot to mention - the ribs were great! :-D

Sorry about Cutes! She was cute!
But I think that the new one is cuter. Personally, I dislike birds...but I bet that you will love yours!

Hey Ally!
I just LOVE your birds!!!! I am going to get one for a birthday present, but I decided to wait until the addition's done. (That way it will be easier to clean and such).

You know since my dad is a Heating and Air tech guy, he gets to see lots of houses. In this one house he saw (and heard!) a bird that was singing the 'Andy Griffith' theme song. It was pretty neat! LOL

lOvE yOu GaL!
