The Pink household has a new addition. And we think it's blue! Well, male anyway; he is mostly green, with a peach face (hence the label Peach-faced Lovebird), and a blue rump.
You may remember Cinnamon. He never did quite recover from our mishap. I think it was me that didn't ever recover. When we moved back to Hometown, Florida he stayed with our neighbor who had fallen for him. They both seemed happy with the arrangement.
But then we also "lost" our kitty during the transition. We had successfully moved her twice. Both times she disappeared for a few days, and then showed back up looking for food and love. This time, however she hung around for a day or two and then left us for (I choose to believe) greener pastures.
So, we have been petless for the last eight months. The kiddos liked the idea of a new pet, but our possibilities were limited to caged, non-dander producing animals. Since I love watching and listening to birdies, I began working on RedDaddy. He wasn't really a hard sell...he loves me!
This little guy was my idea, and will be my baby. So much cheaper than a baby-baby, and birds don't tend to talk back! ;)
Isn't he pretty?! Only problem is, we can't decide on a name. Wanna help? I'll take any and all suggestions...well, except Bob. His tail feathers are, for some reason, bobbed (they will grow back in just fine) and so I joked about calling him Bob. The family has started to use that, and I don't want it to stick!
So, put your thinkin' caps on and help a girl out! He has a very sweet, cuddly disposition, but has a propensity to do this:
He loves to hang upside down! Silly boy. (you can see his nipped tail)
And just to give you an idea of scale:
He is about the same size as the caster on the piano leg!
I know I should probably offer a prize to whomever names our new Lovebird, but...well, I got nuthin'. Tell you what: come back here tomorrow and I'll share my crazy good hoecake recipe, complete with photos and smell-a-vision. Deal?
