Default I almost caved!

I went into the pet shop today to get Alistair some food and I noticed that they'd brought in a couple of new birds.
One of the baby girls was GORGEOUS, and it took every part of my being not to take her home with me.

Instead I just bought another toy for Alistair.
Also I finally had enough to get an extension for his cage, so the parts are going to be here in the next few days or so!

It can be awful tough to resist. I always try to avoid the temptation but end up just having to take a peek at the bird's, and then there is almost alway's one that the eye settles on and you'd like to scoop up, and take home...

That's what I have started doing, Jonah. I just don't look at the budgies in the pet stores.

It's amazing how addictive it all is. Now that I have the two babies in one cage, I've realized (as you all told me - I was just hoping against hope) that I really should have a cage for each. Now I'm shopping for another cage!

And then toys for that cage and on and on and on...

Against my nature of enabling, I say good for you! I'm typically the one who will tell you to go back and get her, buuuuut, I don't even know what she looks like , lol. And I'm proud of you for holding out, especially when your current baby is getting more attention! Go You!!!!!!!!!!!

Amber,

I'm very proud of you!

Good job to walk away and get Alistair and new toy and the extension for his cage.

From now on, stay out of the pet stores and do your shopping on-line!

I have the same problem with pet stores and bakeries. I try to stay out of both. I order my flocks's food over the internet and it keeps me out of trouble. now if I could just get Dunkin Donuts to deliver online!

So, I guess you don't look at on-line sites like the one in this link?

Deb, stop that! It's too late for me to be ordering sugary foods online! Its like 11 PM over here and now you're tempting me to grab one of my Aussie chocolate bars

Now that we're all fully tempted, good job walking away! Hopefully the little one goes to a good home

EDIT: I just went on the site and there was drool on my face.
Thanks a lot, Deb.
