I am Birdy Sitting ...
« on: June 20, 2013, 11:59:52 AM »
Felix the bird, the wonderful, wonderful, wonderful bird!!!!

Felix is a Maxi Pi that I raised/handfed back in 1999 and I had given him to a young man back then but their history is that his owner had moved to Hawaii for a few years and I kept Felix.  About two years ago, his owner moved back to California up in the northern area and after he got situated then he took Felix up there to live with him.  So every now and then he comes down our way to visit his family and if they go on outings then he wants me to birdy sit Felix, so I have him for this week!!  He is staying in Kuka's cage here in the house being that Kuka is staying outside.  Felix is a love sponge and loves to be out of his cage, he is flighted but he does not or has not flew at all so far while being here.

Felix is ALWAYS happy to see me and stay with me!!

Also, Felix turned 14 years old this month too!   :hatchday1:

Here are a couple of pics that I just took of Felix ...

Wow, he is gorgeous!  What does that tell you about being a good egg, that they send him back to you for Grandma bird sitting?  We all have that special connection, Jan and you are extra special :)

Thank you! Felix must think I am extra special too! LOL! Felix's owner who is Tim, he refers me to Felix's as his Mama, in which I am being that I raised him.  Back when I "gave" Felix to Tim, Tim was only along 20 years old in 1999 then in 2001 when my daughter died in July of 2001, Tim moved to Hawaii along Oct. of 2001 (Tim & my Daughter were girlfriend/boyfriend at the time and had been for 2 years prior) so being that Tim was not settled well in Hawaii, I would not let him take Felix at the time.  Then a couple of years after he had been living there in Hawaii we were going to get it set up to ship Felix there but then the outbreak of the Exotic New Castle Disease had started so no parrots could leave or travel by plane due to that so Felix just remained with me for the years until Tim moved back here and got settled. 

Felix had seen Tim a few times while he lived there in Hawaii as he came here for a few visits.  Frankly, Felix doesn't care if he is with me or Tim.

Yes, Felix is usually content!

As of today, Saturday, I have not heard from Tim ... I know he was suppose to go off on another 2 day adventure when they were back from the one they've been on so I will call to see what is happening ... not that I am in a hurry to have Felix leave! He's easy to watch over, so no problem.


What a wonderful connection to your daughter.  <3

Thank you much.  Yes, and actually to this day, I still have her & Tim's framed photos in the hallway from their Prom night from when they were in High School.  We are close friends with his parents and a lot of their family.  You can see Jen's Page and some of her stuff on my main site, I have like 3 pages on her. www.pionusparrot.com/JensPage.htm

Hugs to you with the 4th coming. Are you sure Felix has to go back to Tim? Sounds like such a wonderful bird....your description of Maxi pi on your website influenced me to adopt a Maxi

Aw thanks all ... well, Felix has now gone back home with his Daddy, he came here last night on Tuesday 6/25 to pick up Felix then the next morning (Wednesday) they were heading back up north and he should have been back by 4 pm in the afternoon.  It was a great visit and Felix and I had some nice one on one time! He is such a great bird, a real love sponge!!

Is Tim interested in joining this forum and giving us updates on Felix?
