A little over a year ago today, my search for a friend for Phoenix began. I didn’t want to purchase from a pet store, so I mostly looked over craigslist and rescues. After a few weeks, this little blue guy came upon my Craigslist feed. He was 2 hours away from me, but something inside me said he was the one, and that I had to get him. Whatever it was that said to get him was absolutely right, he is the perfect fit for our family.

To see how far Raijū has come from when I first brought him home still blows my mind to this day. He went from being this poor trembling little thing, who was too scared to even chirp, to being this very loving, crazy, and LOUD little dude. I never expected to bond with Raijū this much, and now him and I are just as inseparable as Phoenix and I are. He asks for kisses, screams to be picked up, loves cuddling on my shoulder, and is 100% not afraid of me anymore. He’s even let my family hold him!

And in honor of it being one year, I retook one of their first photos together. Crazy to see how much they’ve changed!! Raijū looks exponentially more confident and Phoenix looks like a grumpy old man (he was grumpy, he didn’t want me to put him down:roflmao:
