    I need to start being more active on here. Tidsy is the best thing that has entered my life. My mother passed due to cancer right before christmas and i had Tidsy out like a day or so later. Im of course a mess and I have never allowed Tidsy to get near my face but that day I just didn't care at all. She climbed right up on my shoulder, surfing and all that jazz...then went up on my head to do the same. After she got that all out of her system she climbed back down on my shoulder and layed her body on my chest and stretched a wing out in a hug. These birds know without a doubt our emotional state and she truly comforted me. She has not done that since that day though i do finally trust her on my shoulder and head...her and i have bonded so well and shes just an outstanding bird. Ive trained her to potty on command however she does still poo where i dont prefer but thats entirely my fault for not paying attention and she also spins for treats. Im still going through a lot of emotional turmoil over the fast and unexpected loss of my mother but this bird my mom even loved (as well as my quaker Opie) but Tidsy (and Opie) helps a ton. Attached is a pic of her a little earlier today as well as her giving me a big hug the day in question.

    I lost my mom 10 years ago, also to cancer. I miss her everyday. Birds are a wonderful comfort...they are so intune with our feelings. Be sure to give yourself time to grieve for your mom and take care of yourself. And get wing hugs everyday!:hug4:

    I am so sorry for your loss. There is just no friend like your Mom. I lost my Mom 20 yrs ago and I felt like a piece of me went with her. So glad you have your loving birds to comfort you. Bless you!
