Vlooi or Louis or just blue bird

Quintus got this Ring-neck from my parents for his birthday.  He was saved by their neighbour after surviving wind, rain and cold temperatures.  Not only that but also being caught by a dog.

From the first moment he saw Quintus he was taken with him.  He says every single word and whistles every song he knows when he sees Quintus.  Completely loves him. I am not high on his list of priorities though, even though I spoil him with all things nice.

Finally this weekend we got him to climb out of his cage.  Well by me, I mean Quintus.  Quintus just opened the gate and sat next to it.  Louis / Vlooi (he has two names depending on who is talking to him lol) just climbed right on out and into Quintus’s hands.  He got onto his shoulder and it sure looked as though he was talking into his ear. 

I don’t know who was more happy.  Quintus for finally being able to hold him or Louis for being out of his cage.

  7. That second picture is just so sweet. My kids like to snuggle with their cats. It makes me feel good that they’re able to love and care for another living creature.

    • I think it’s so important to love animals. To be caring in such a way
