Nice to meet ya! My name's Talia, but you can call me Tally.
The new people I'm staying with wanted me to introduce myself and that sounded like heaps of fun. (And I really like fun. )
I don't know how old I am, funny as that is to say. The Nice Lady adopted me when I had hurt myself and fell on the side of the road (I was having fun until -then-), but she had to give me away. Her boyfriend (GRRR! He makes me want to BITE things!) didn't like me and teased me and called me mean names and said I had to go.
I'm still really sad about that because I miss the Nice Lady, but she gave me to this new family. Camera Lady and Tall Guy are okay (I guess), but you know what's really cool?
THEY GOT BUDGIES LIKE ME.
I'm SO excited. They won't let me meet them yet, but I keep swinging upside down from the top of my cage just to PROVE I'm totally feeling better now. (I am totally ready. Promise!)
But, nooooo. I gotta go through 'quarantine'. But. See. There's this girl nearby who talks to me. She says her name is 'Lyta' and I -really- like her. In fact (don't tell!) I tried to sneak out of my cage to see her and bent my bars and got stuck.
And then Camera Lady went and got me another cage. And it's a bummer because I can't escape this one. I guess I gotta wait to meet Lyta. AND I DON'T WANT TO WAIT.
I don't know what to think so far. Nice Lady and Mean Boyfriend really liked when I bit them hard and always yelled really loudly! But Camera Lady and Tall Guy don't seem to even notice. It's confusing. How else do I tell them what I want? Ugh. Sometimes I get SO mad and UGH. Now I got to train a new family -- one that doesn't understand what biting means.
Oh, well. Lyta was saying it's not so bad here. But we'll see.
Anyway! I saw so many other budgies on here that I can't wait! I want to meet all of you! I'll never be lonely again! YAY!
She really doesn't know how to take us yet (and I only can hope that my partner and I can give this little girl the care she needs -- she has a lot of issues), but she's such the little monkey. Just climbing everything. Hanging upside down. And, oh my goodness, she's a curious little thing, so eager to try all the new things. She's gutsy!
I do hope she grows to like us, but -- one thing is for certain -- she can't wait to meet Lyta. And Lyta, judging by the happy fluffy mood she's been in since we adopted Tally, can't wait to meet her.
Forget about nice lady and mean boyfriend as they were a stepping stone to where you need to be now, in a home that loves you for who you are.
Ohh his Royal Highness Indy the King of ALL Budgies (in his head) has issued this order, No more biting Camera Lady or Tall Guy'. After all (he mentioned to me in a soft voice....) who brings you yummy millet?
"Yes your Highness, millet coming up". Got me curled around his toe that one does
Obviously, you're a little budgie who knows what you want in life. I'm sorry that Nice Lady couldn't keep you, but I can tell you for sure that Camera Lady is lovely and you're sure to have a wonderful time with her. I hope to see lots more of you soon, pretty girl!
Mallorn and I send our best wishes.
P.S: Tell your new mum congratulations on getting such a lovely little bird!
and Princess Mallorn!
