Hello, all.

I feel the need to post a welcome, as I haven't posted here in almost a year and a half.

My 11 year old cockatiel Clementine, who had been my sunshine, died over the summer. It wasn't completely unexpected, as she has had health problems for years, but I'd hoped we'd have a few more years. She died in my husband's hands after having a seizure in her cage. She had liver disease.

We rescued a conure, who I thought was a Jenday but now I think is a Sunday, two years ago. He's been a handful, but he is 100% worth it. He is my special guy. Unfortunately he is still scared of EVERYTHING IN THE WORLD EXCEPT ME, but as long as he can snuggle with me, we're a-okay.

On Christmas Eve, we very unexpectedly rescued a cockatiel, who I have named Charlie. He came with the name "Two Piece", and I just couldn't keep that name. Charlie has some special needs, as he has pretty bad arthritis and generally poor health.

I've decided that I really need to get back into the online bird community. I have started a blog to chronicle my adventures in rehabilitating Charlie: charliebird and me. I could really use support and guidance, so I'd like to make my presence known and make some friends who are in similar boats. So, I'm baa-aack!

Thanks to everyone for the warm welcome! Yeah, I sure do have my hands full! A 14 month old Aussie/Pittie mix with energy for miles, a sassy conure who reminds me of a jealous boyfriend, and a needy new boy who I want to shower with love and affection 24/7. Plus a full-time job and three college classes starting next week! I THINK I MIGHT BE CRAZY!

Your blog made me laugh and cry. What precious stories! My husband and I are parents to a beautiful feathered daughter, a green cheeck conure named Chirpie. She is our heart and just turned a young 13 last month. We found out this week that she has arthritis in her leg; the leg she injured last year. So we getting the most information possible to make her life the best it can be for that little leg. And I see your feathered baby is also dealing with arthritis. Is there any information you can email me that you have used on Charlie that has helped with his? I know it can't be reversed. But I'm positive it can be slowed way down. That baby limp breaks our hearts many times a day :( I'm not even sure if we can put email addresses in posts on this forum??
