An extremely tame, sweet, gorgeous female budgie was surrendered to the rescue where I volunteer. I mentioned her to Thomas, thinking he would object (as he has in the past when I mentioned theoretically that Brian would like a partner.) This would let me off the hook for any guilt -- after all he's the one that said no, not me.
But his response? "Bring her home! I make two pieces of toast in the morning!" That's not the response I wanted!
If she were old, or had a large tumor, she'd already be at my house. I have to keep telling myself no -- we've already got 7 birds, and that's enough. Plus, I really like to stick to similar-sized birds which reduces the chance of a severe accident happening. I only agreed to take Brian because he was a hospice bird who needed a good home for his final days. (Luckily we've gotten more months with him than planned; with any lucky we'll continue to have many more.)
I'm really hoping that someone adopts her before my resolve completely weakens. I love budgies!
ETA: She was adopted today, which is what I hoped would happen. I think we'll stick to old and/or tumor budgies and leave the young, healthy ones for other people to adopt.
