A good family friend is giving us African lovebirds. This will be our second try to welcome birds into the family. We were given lovebirds by one of my aunts before; one died, I released the other (it just seemed too sad without a friend).

I have nothing against birds, in fact I like their chirpyness. But we also have a cat who believes she owns the house, and she’s too fond of our feathered friends. I think she gave our previous lovebird a heart attack.

So now, African lovebirds. We’re going to keep them in the house for a little bit, maybe in the living room, because there are already two goldfish in the bathroom.
