BURGE BIRD RESCUE
February 15, 2012

I was told about Burge Vet by an aquaintance of my dad's. I had recently lost my beloved budgie, Bukkit, whom I had purchased from Petco. She was only with me for three months, and I loved her almost as much as she loved me. I was devistated from the loss, and I was interested in looking for a new budgie to help heal the gap in my heart. I went to BBR over Thanksgiving break to see her birds available for adoption. She introduced me to a semi-tame little female. They had found her out in someone's backyard. Freeflighted and no home they knew of, they named her Amelia. As I was holding the trembling bird, I leaned over and took a chance. She let me rub her head with my nose! SIlly, yes, but she closed her eyes and stopped trembling. I took her home with me. She has now been with me for over a year and I love her so much. She is obnoxious and loves to see how far she can throw her food out of her cage, but she loves me (in her own conditional way) and I enjoy talking with her. She usually has the last word in our sometimes intense conversations. She loves loud music, Disney movies (but not as much as she loves action movies), and climbing on my computer to look at her reflection in the screen. She is my baby in every way, well, more like a rebellious teenager. She may be a complete opposite of the late Bukkit, but she has healed my heart and will forever be treasured.
