Default Single Budgie & Leaving for College?

Wow, I haven't been on here in a while! I have recently been doing a lot of research and thinking about my budgie, Pete, who is now living alone due to his friend Elvis passing away about a year ago. I remembered this forum and realized this is probably where I'm going to get the best advice!

Anyways, I'll be going to college in August and won't be able to bring Pete with me. Currently, he's given lots of attention by me and is very bonded to me. When I leave my mom will be his primary caregiver. I'm really worried and feel bad that I'm leaving him behind and have been considering getting him a friend. I wouldn't have any second thought at all about this if it wasn't for my mom-who already has a lot to take on-having to care for two birds instead of one. Has anybody experienced this? What would be my best option? Thanks.

It's good to see you back on the forum Katie.
I'm sorry to read that Elvis passed away, that must have been difficult for both you and Pete, however Pete is now used to being without a cage mate and to be honest at his age he may not welcome a newcomer, the worst case scenario could be that any newcomer and Pete don't get on and then they would have to be caged separately which would mean more work for your Mum, obviously Pete will miss you when you go to college but as long as your Mum can give him love and attention then I'm sure he will be fine.
If Pete is currently in your room move him into the living room so that he is in a room where there is more action, noises and sounds to occupy him, if their are any problems with Pete while you are away at college then your Mum can always come on here for our help.
Pete

Good to see you back

I'm sorry to hear about Elvis

I agree with Pete, though, if you've already talked to the dean and there's no way they would allow you to keep him with you it's best if he stays with your mum in a central area of the house.

Keep us posted!
