My first pet
My first real pet. Aussie. A beautiful cockatiel. She's the first pet I had besides fish (which generally only lived a couple of hours at my house). She passed away today. She was 15. She always chirped when people came home or when the phone rang. She did this cute little dance in her cage, moving her head from side to side. Her biggest accomplishments were the couple of eggs she laid.
In my parents' old house, there was a 2-story living room. She didn't really like to come out of her cage. You'd have to grab her and put her on top of it. Sometimes she would fly up to the upstairs. She'd always chirp when after she landed -- as if surprised at what she could do. My bird's no longer confined to her little cage. She can sore now.
