Okay, first off: Vital information you didn't know you needed until this exact moment.



Thanks, Linkara!

...It's helping me take my mind off of my worry for Petie. Her head...it looks like she's getting a little bald spot. Right above her beak. And she's being a lot quieter and less active, and at least she's eating and grooming herself, but.

Fuck.

I feel like a horrible pet owner. I can't afford to take her to the vet, and even if I could she doesn't trust me, so I can't get her into her travel cage (I refuse to grab her because that's a good way to ensure your bird will never trust you).

I mean, am I not spending enough time with her? What am I doing wrong? ...Maybe I should have gotten finches, or a bird that CAN'T be tamed. It's better than feeling like I'm watching my bird suffer and not knowing what to do about it.

On the bright side, I've discovered that chewing mint gum or brushing my teeth and then blowing wind at her makes her come up to the bars, where she'll try to nibble on my lips. It's quite cute. <3
