Runt Yes Critter it is hard to give them up.Doesn't matter who it will go to,or what kind of pet it is.It will always be your baby.I made my daughter wait till Pedad was over 8 weeks old before I let her take him homes.LOL

Crittercall Why do you think Bub has never let me breed any of our animals??? And we ended up with 7 cats because I would bring abandoned kittens home to "socialize" them then cry when it was time to take them back.

The people we got the birds from were telling Bub how much money we could make on just breeding and selling parrotlets - - -I don't need to hear that! I keep telling myself I don't have a place to put them, no one to keep them if we go out of town, etc.

My heart is way too soft!

capnsweets That is crazy! I don't know how breeders do it. It makes me sad thinking about it. Good luck to you though!

Lizgirl I'm with the others. A baby steals your heart and never gives it away, no matter what kind of baby it is.

We were at the grocery store yesterday, and as we were leaving my husband heard a child's voice call out, "Free rotweiler puppies." I said put me in the car. I know if I saw them, I would want one. Not like I can acutally have one in our over-crowded apartment.

Must be the mother's instinct kicking in.

Crittercall The plan is to give it to my Dad for Christmas - but if he and/or Mom says "No Way" - I guess I'll have to bring it back home. But I'm sending myself "don't get too attached" vibes!!

heavensmom AWW! i know how hard it is to raise an animal and then give it away!

Sassy You will not give it away! How old is it? They are pretty birds even without all of their feathers.

Makes me miss my cockatiels. My daughter was allergenic to the birds so we gave them to my grandmother and uncle.
