My Old Man Tiger-Pooh
This is a funny little post because it's about my old bird Tiggie. He's really old. He has been in my life since I can remember and was even several years old when we got him. He bit one of us when we first got him and so we named him Tiger the people eater...and we've had him for over 25 years even after he bit us. He can do the cat call but never learned to speak. He is a yellow cockatiel. Most birds of his type only live for a span of 12-15 years so he is ancient...he is blind, arthritic, and can't stand to well. He gets around like an old man...BUT he sings, eats and still poops just as good as the rest of them. He recognizes my dad's voice and is depressed when they leave town. We joke that he is just going to be twinkled to heaven cause he is so old. Wouldn't surprise me. Anyone who knows me, knows my dear bird Tiger. I cant wait to see him in 2 days....it will be a sad day when I fly home and he's not around, but until then meet Tiger!
