Evidently she has decided that is her bed and was sleeping there again last night. I saw her there hid behind all the toys this morning. lol And no!!!! She is NOT a sweetie! She looks so sweet but mean as a snake. I have suffered so many bites from her (hand, fingers, arms and even my face) and when she bites, she draws blood. Shes tamed down some now and doesn't bite me near as often and is getting better but I think she is literally bi-polar or something. One minute shes sweet and tries to sing with me and then she will just bite for no reason at all.
She also does this crazy thing where shes sitting on my finger, something I just recently got her to do, and she'll be talking and suddenly she'll scream out and just attack her own foot! Scared the crap out of me the first few times she did it, I though for sure she was going to draw blood but went for her own foot instead. Whew! It was hard to stand there w/her on my finger and not flinch! lol
I've had lots of people tell me to re-home her because shes mean and won't let anybody but me near her. The way I figure it, she came to me as a re-home from a bird flipper and I have no idea how many homes she has been in. I'm not about to re-home her again and make it worse for her. She's so unstable that she would just be moved from home to home and I refuse to see that happen. I do love her with all my heart and have been working w/her for about 8 months now. Shes slowly coming around but I figure she will never be a cuddly sweet bird. She won't even let me scratch her. It sux too. Have you ever had a bird that you just want to be able to pick up and cuddle and scratch? That's how I feel w/Gypsy. I keep hoping that one day she'll let me scratch her. I just keep trying and I just keep remembering to be patient with her. Even w/her meanness she has stolen my heart. lol
