Unfortunately for these little, complicated birds they’ve become this year’s newest trend. Thousands of people worldwide have begun purchasing these adorable little birds due to trending videos which usually display a regurgitating or aggressive parrotlet. Sadly, very little people who bring them home actually know what it takes to care for them properly to allow them to thrive. Since there’s no way I could possibly stop everyone from impulse buying these birds the least I can do is explain the reality behind owning one in the hopes that someone will either think twice or be a little more prepared for avian ownership.

That Escalated Quickly

I don’t think I say enough how much I appreciate all the interesting notes, awesome funny comments, and cool ideas that so many of you have sent me. I try to get back to everyone, but even if I’m lame and don’t do it until forever from now, please know I saw and appreciated it!  ALSO, SOME OF YOU WONDERFUL PEOPLE HAVE BEEN MAKING ME FANART AND I LOVE IT ALL SO MUCH AND I’M GOING TO PRINT THEM ALL AND PUT THEM UP ON MY WALL THANK YOU AGAIN. (I will post pics when it’s all nice and up).

But all that awesomeness aside, let’s move on to this week’s open question for you all to hypothesize/be sassy about for this week, so here goes!

When they finally settle in and warm up to each other, how do you think Zelda and Ganondorf will express their affection to each other?

(Same old reminder: this is just for fun and I love both silly or serious ideas. I’ll post a few on my page and respond to all that I can. (And again, if you send me a note as an anon, I can’t respond privately, so just keep in mind that, that limits my options as far as a response goes.) :)

Next part will be out sometime next weekend/early monday! Thanks again. Seriously, you all are just the best.

High fives and Love! :D
