Rest in peace Snowy

Rest in peace Snowy

Unfortunately Snowy passed away yesterday afternoon. He seemed to have breathing difficulties which came on very suddenly. There was nothing that we could do but try and make him comfortable.

We will miss you little fellow. Reunited with Monty and Charlie and Budgie heaven.

My cheeky little JoJo

Little JoJo still can’t fly. But she still seems to be happy. We adapted her cage, with a rope perch along the front and lots of other perches, plus a platform so that she can get around easily.

She also has a towel underneath the newspaper at the bottom in case she falls. There are ladders so that she can climb back up to a perch easily from the bottom.

In the morning she squawks at me to open the door for her to come out, she climbs up to the rope perch on the front of the cage and sits there.

It’s relatively safe for her to come out and sit on the perch as we have a large folded up cover with newspapers on it, positioned on the floor to catch her if she falls. We do not leave her unsupervised.

BillyBob leaps on to my hand and flies straight out, sometimes giving a little squawk as he does so, “freedom!!!!!” he exclaims.

We get JoJo out of the cage frequently and she sits on my shoulder, chewing on my t-shirt, biting my ear or sometimes eating millet.

Photos of me with the little minx. I think she’s warming to me…

A birthday breakfast

Roswell (See Biff Club post) and Snowy (above with the three yellows) are 4 years old today.
They have basil (the herb, not the budgie) and some babycorn for breakfast. Later on they shall chomp on millet.

Biff Club

The three rules of Biff Club are..

1/ We don’t talk about Biff Club

2/ We don’t talk about Biff Club

3/ No biting


Every morning Roswell (After putting on his Biff-Proof Vest) corners Snowy and Biffs all the other budgies away from him.

He wants Snowy to play with him only.

Yellow Peril

Yellow Peril

George, Custard and BillyBob look like they may be plotting something.
Should I be worried?
