Yeah, we’re keeping you

Kali was in a kill shelter before being rescued (that would traumatize even this grizzled parrot). When she was brought to our home in January 2014, she was the “wild child” or as He likes to spell it “Wylde Chylde” in the manner of the Bard.  She was out for adoption once before and returned because (surprise!!) she was too Wylde. She’s very smart, almost as smart as this bird-brain and she finally figured out that she’s staying.

No worries, no problems and not a problem.


On cool nights (it hasn’t been below freezing this winter), she crawls under the covers to keep a human warm by sleeping next to Him or Her.  She doesn’t try to run away, like at first. This upcoming summer, she’ll just chill.

  1. It’s great when they know they are home and quit trying to run off. Excellent. Too cute too.
