I'm not sure if it's within the rules of this site to do this, but I need to find Peety a new home. I feel terrible doing this but my roommates have a burning hatred for him and the noises that he makes. I've made so much progress with him but despite the fact that they said I could get him, they want nothing else but to see him gone; they constantly just go up to his cage and yell at him for doing what his natural instincts tell him to do...chirp. I'm afraid that they might actually try to release him if I keep him. I live in North Hollywood, California, so if anyone on here is in the area, or knows someone that is, and can give him a good home, please let me know! He's such a beautiful little guy, and I love him so much, but unfortunately my roommates are jerks. I guess I'll have to wait until I live by myself before I get one again. Thank you guys for all of your help.
It's very sad and unfortunate that your circumstances are forcing you to rehome your little fellow. We do have several members in California so hopefully one of them will be able to help out or will know of someone looking for a budgie that will be able to give Peety a safe and loving forever home.
Perhaps if you now tell your room-mates that you are in the process of re-homing Peety, they will agree to treat him kindly until the time comes when he moves to his new home.
I certainly hope they are mature enough to do so for poor little Peety's sake!
I live in England. Tell your friends from me they want to grow up They sound nasty and cruel. Do they think it big to make someones life miserable which you would be if you had to give your little bird away. They need to get a life. How can they do that to a little budgie. If i was you i would try and find somewhere else to live. I certainly wouldnt let horrible people like that force me to give my little budgie away. And blowing at him .How can they do that. When i hear anything about California. I will always be reminded of those mean girls who tormented a little budgie.
We'll all be keeping our fingers crossed that your girlfriend's roommate will be willing to have the budgie at their place.
Perhaps offering to keep the budgie in her room rather than in a common living area would be helpful?
Please keep us updated with regard to how things progress for little Peety.
WOW, Peetey definitely needs to move to get away from this horrible negative environment he is in. I truly hope the move happens soon for his sake, as for those room mates I feel sad indeed.
Sending loving thoughts to you and your girlfriend I truly hope you are allowed to move him over there as soon as possible.
Is it possible for you to move into a pet friendly environment? I know that if I had room mates that yelled at my pet I would not be a happy camper and my relationship with my roommates would completely breakdown so even getting rid of the pet would not help - in fact it would make things very tense.
I'm so sorry you and Peety are in this awful situation - your room mates are horrible people and should be ashamed of themselves.
I am sorry your roommates changed their minds about Peety. I hope things work out for you to move him to your girl friends place so you can still keep him close.
Its too bad when people change their minds and you have no control about it. Finding affordable housing in this day and age is really a challenge.
I hope all work the best for you and Peety.
