This year started out so great, and then since April... ugh. Feel free to skip this in your inbox, I'm just boo-hooing here.

To add to the crap in my personal life, my adorable little albino Budgerigar died. Boo was only 3 years old, and it was the weirdest thing because last week I thought I should take her to the vet, but we still haven't found a vet  for the pets because we've only been in this condo for two months now. But then I convinced myself that her stool was a weird color not because she was sick but because I switched her food to a new brand that was a different color. Nope. She was sick, and it was hard for me to tell because she has been a very low-energy bird since she reached adulthood (she slept on the floor of her cage, she wouldn't leave her cage unless it was to be near me, and if she came to me she just wanted to sleep inside my hand or be petted, etc etc) so she has shown symptoms of lethargy and such for years. 

You hear about people waking up and finding their pets had died overnight, but in my case I woke up, greeted her, she greeted me, she did her "let me out" dance and followed me to the bathroom, and since she was kinda due for one we hopped in the shower together (yes, I showered with my bird! it's the only way I'd get her to bathe because she was afraid of the sink @_@). I sang a few songs but she didn't sing with me, which was unusual. Then I took her back to her cage and she napped on a branch after eating some food. I took my computer into the living room, checked on her a few hours later, and then right before I started to cook dinner I decided to pop in and see how she was doing... and she was dead. Just like that. Laying on the bottom of her cage as if she'd fallen off her perch. I was so shocked I just started screaming and crying.

She never bit me, and I had to hand feed her as a baby, so she was a little more cuddly than most budgies. The only problem I had with her was she would obsessively flock call--even in her sleep! And she ate her poo, and has since she was younger (which may have been a health issue???). And that's just icky. She was the pickiest little eater and would never eat veggies or anything, and most treats I gave her were ignored. I wonder if she died of stress from the move (two in one year, including a 2 hour plane ride) or if she died from an ongoing problem. I was kicking myself for not finding a way to get her to a vet, even though money is tight right now and I am still finding my way around this town. 

I don't think I'm going to get another budgie. I've had bad experiences with horror-birds in the past, and she was the only one I hand-fed from a young age and she was easily the sweetest tempered bird, and most of her sounds she made were her imitating me (she'd say "Hey, baby!" like 10 times a day). She drove me nuts with her flock calling, but I really adored her, and I wish I could have been a better owner. I don't think I'll ever find a better budgie, so she'll be the last one I ever own, I think.


If you are on Inkblazers, you're going to see my schedule is a little off thanks to this (and my husband's birthday, which was the next day... bye-bye, money!) in that this week I will probably only post 3 pages instead of 4. But my schedule has been off ever since I moved.... I just thought I would get things back on track this month. I still have artwork to draw and my Kickstarter to do.




My birthday is next month, and I was thinking about getting a lovebird to help fill the void. I'm not totally sold on the idea of getting another pet so soon, but she was the cheeriest part of my day sometimes and I loved snuggling up with Boo and my dog to watch movies after a hard day's work (my dog hates other dogs and strange people but is pretty chill around small animals and he LOVES cats). Lovebirds are even snugglier than budgies and like to crawl inside of pockets and such, which I would love because I could have my bird in my hoodie pouch while I worked or something. But has anyone ever owned a lovebird? I know they have high-pitched voices, but how irritating does it REALLY get? Are they screamers? Do their bites draw blood? Etc etc. As usual, I can find a ton of sources praising lovebirds as the best pet ever, but bird lovers aren't big on dissing their precious pets, heh. 

It's weird that I am thinking of getting another bird, since I actually prefer mammals to birds, and I did consider getting a squirrel or something, so I'm looking into that as well. I guess I became a bird fan a bit. As frustrating as they can be sometimes (so much more frustrating than most mammals I've owned in the past), I think Boo made me laugh more than any of my non-dog pets. She used to sing the "happy happy joy joy" song from Ren and Stimpy XD Ahhh, I'll miss her.

Japanese people seem to have too much time on their hands. They invented a new pregnancy test meme. kotaku.com/anime-characters-an… You should check it out. Basically you take any screenshot still, anime or otherwise (funnier if it's anime) and then photoshop a picture of a hand holding a pregnancy test. A few of the posted pictures are actually kind of hilarious. Especially the ones with same sex couples/shippings.
