In 2 1/2 months I am going to be going on a year long road trip around the country, every month I will be staying in a new place. I have had my parakeet for a year now and I really don't want to have to part with her, because I love her so much. Although I know it would be best to get rid of her since I might be in the car for 3 days and I know that your parakeet shouldn't be in it's travel cage for very long. I know that I should get rid of her because it is what's best, but I hate that idea it makes me so sad. So I am wondering if anyone could help me decide, or give me more reason to get rid of her? Should I get rid of my parakeet?
