I gotta say "The Birds" had the opposite effect on me. When they were all lined up on the clothesline and then flying after the school children who were running in terror. Yeah, I didn't really want a bird.
They had an old St. Bernard that was always just laying there sleeping and then this Huge Bad-Ass Parrot that sat on his perch and SQUAWKED if you got any where near it. I had been warned to stay far from it or it could "snap your finger off!"
Then I found this big rusty old black birdcage that sits on a stand at an estate sale. I looked at it several times but passed it up. On the last day of the sale everything would be marked down half price, but unfortunately I had to work. I asked a friend if she happened to stop at the sale, would she check and see if it was still there.
So she shows up at work with the birdcage and said it only cost $2.50! I took it home and plan to sand off the rust, prime it, spray it white (of course! LOL!) and then I thought I'd maybe paint a design or swirls in black...I'm not totally sure yet, but......I started to think about getting a bird!
But do birds get lonely? Do they need someone to keep them company?
or is it a more the merrier kind of thing?
I went over to that Garden/pet store today. The parrot and the dog of course are both gone.
Just some very sad looking birds, parrots with feathers missing, a flock of parakeets and this cutest little canary....
I think I would want a canary...if I got one but what about Harry?
Ya know he's not REALLY a cat. I'd probably have to padlock it and hide the key!
and what about my other cats? would they torment the bird, stalk her?
and what about my dogs? would they knock over the birdcage?
Maybe I should get a bird from Nicole!
Her birds don't eat much, don't scatter seeds everywhere and never try to fly away!
You can find them at her etsy shop :
