April 3, 2005 - April 14, 2006
On Sunday April 3, 2005 we purchased Minnie-me at Denio's in Roseville. There are photos and a video clip of that day here. The original plan was to deliver her to my sister in Reno the following weekend. But we and the other birds became attached, so we purchased a substitute to deliver to Reno, and Minnie-me became part of our family.
In March I had to rush home from work at lunch when Minnie-me got stuck in the one inch space between the cabinet and wall, and Tess was unable to get her out
On Friday April 14, 2006 we returned home from work to discover that Itchy and Minnie-me had gotten into a fight - that proved fatal to Minnie-me. Those photos are at the bottom.
Minnie-me and Scratchy were inseparable. We suspect Itchy was jealous
Just a week ago Itchy and Minnie-me on a bunny
They liked to watch us from the overhead fan
When Minnie-me's wings were clipped she was able to walk in the lettuce patch
Like the other birds, she enjoyed her flying time out of the cage
And doubling up in the mirror
This was our bird family...
But we came home to find this
So we have to say goodbye to our good friend who's life was cut short
