Guess who's coming back home in January?!?

Guess who's coming back home in January?!?
That's right...the one and only....ALEX THE AFRICAN GREY!!

For those of you who don't know, I saved up and bought a baby congo african grey parrot a while back. I handfed him myself, raised him into a big healthy boy.

Unfortunately he was rehomed....

But I'm getting him back in January! I am so excited I'm practically doing flips. My parents are helping me get him back and I will eventually pay them back, they are so wonderful!

Here are some photos:

That's fantastic Abby... I never understood why you rehomed him in the first place... You wanted him so bad, worked sooo hard to get him, loved him so deeply... I hope what ever reason you had last time is fixed and you can keep him forever!

Thank you!
Maybe I will be able to visit him before Jan. 5 (when I will probably be taking him home). We'll see. If I do, I'll let you know how he's doing and possibly take some pictures. When he actually comes home, I will take lots of pictures, and video too!

That's absolutely great news! I can't imagine how hard it was saying goodbye to the little one in the first place, but I'm super happy for the great ending

No problem. I have Apple and I have Daisy, and soon I will have Alex, too.

Wow that's great! It will be better for him to be with someone he knows than to go through another home change with a stranger.

Congratulations!

Congratulations!

It's great when things like this happen! And you have to wonder sometimes if they happen for a reason.
I am one who has no idea why you had to rehome Alex, but am very glad things have come full circle and he will be back with you.
I am sure he will be very happy about this outcome.
What a great Christmas pressy for both of you.


A tribute to my lost ones. RIP.
