Our 1st anniversary and update!

Hi guys,

A few of you might remember last year when I took a trip to the pet store and ended up coming home with a lovebird who'd been there for 3 years. He was born in the store and all his siblings sold except him. He was also vicious so he didn't get socialized much. When I brought him home, he was pretty nuts. He'd lunge at the cage if anyone even walked by it and spent most of his time flock calling to my budgies, who are housed next to his cage.

Today has been a full year since I impromptu brought Kuzco home. He's now pretty much the most popular roommate in our house. He has a relationship with all my other roommates, buddies up with my best friend, and is a complete velcro bird to me. He loves showers, eating breakfast with us, and is even okay to hang out with the budgies all day while I'm at school. The three of them are out of cage all day together and while the budgies mostly just tolerate him, they all get along and have never even squabbled over food. He's also completely obsessed with having his head rubbed by hands or toys, which is a big deal for him because when we first got him, he would attack hands from the other side of the room. He's come so far that I'm actually flying him out west with me for the summer so he can come to work with me at my new job (the budgies will be being boarded at a rescue I found).

Everyone he meets falls in love with him and I'm just so proud of how far he's come that I had to come on here to brag. Here's to many more years with my beautiful boy.

Thank you! It's the best feeling ever seeing him enjoying life so much more than before. He went to visit the pet store a few months ago and they couldn't believe he was the same bird.
