Hi from Southern California
It's been a long road from me and my linnie. I was "given" two linnies five years ago by my then boyfriend. I say "given" because they were his and when he moved out he left them and his cat. I loved them though, they were my little buddies through thick and thin. They were brothers, one turquoise and one green and completely inseparable.
Last year I left them with a friend when I went on vacation and when I came back, she told me there had been a "tragic accident", the older of the two, and the one that had most bonded to me had passed. I never asked for the specific details. As soon as she said, "He got out of his cage..." I stopped her. We had a little funeral. Verde was depressed for weeks. He who had always been quite shy, but with all the attention and no brother to run to started coming out of his shell and in the past year has really developed into a little lover. He loves to be around me.
This brings me to today. I was offered a job that I couldn't say no to. Unfortunately, it looks like the travel requirements are far more than I previously anticipated. I can't leave him by himself, it's not fair to him. So now I'm trying to figure out what to do. I think that I need to find him a new home, even though it totally breaks my heart. I want him to live with other linnies and be happy. I'm crying as I write this. I've been waiting for two weeks for the Linnie Forum to come back up, but it doesn't look like it will. So here I am, wondering what to do.
