(PART 1) I really don't want to go to a pet store but the closest place to get cockatiels is a days drive away. I really don't like going to pet stores but are they're specific precautions to follow after you gotten a bird from the pet store? Like of
(Part 2) course they don’t like being touched because of their lives in the pet store but they seem afraid even if you walk by their cage. I really don’t want to have to put a blanket over the cage a lot but since the cage is large and my family doesn’t want to deal with it it has to stay in my room. My desk is also in there so I spend a lot of time in there. Are there any better alternatives?
Honestly, it would be better if you were to wait to get a cockatiel until you’re in a better situation. Birds are social animals, they have social needs, and they scream a lot because it’s just how birds behave. Your family isn’t gonna be happy with a cockatiel screaming from your room when you aren’t in there. You can’t just put a blanket over their cage when you’re done playing with them, because they need hours of interaction every day. Getting a second bird usually isn’t a good solution to this, so don’t consider two if you can’t take care of one.
Pet store birds tend to be afraid of people, but it’s not a lost cause if a pet store is the only reasonable option. It’s just a lot of extra work, and you’ll really have to build up a lot of trust before your bird will want to be near you.
Unfortunately, I wouldn’t recommend a bird in your position. You need the full support of your family because a home needs major adjustments in order for a bird to live happily in it. It’s hard to be patient, but reconsider it in the future, and always keep the possibility of bird ownership in mind. I’m sure you’ll be able to take care of a bird eventually! Just make sure that if you’re going to do it, you can do it right.
My boyfriend talks in his sleep and because he’s bilingual, he says some hilarious/weird/sometimes creepy shit. I ask him every morning if he remembers saying this stuff and he has no idea about any of it.
Here are some of my favorites:
-”Babe, can you please turn down the brightness of your skin” -After stealing all of the blankets: “This is my right as a human” -After I take the blankets back: “I don’t want your freedom, America. Just blanket” -Sometimes he just says “Hello?” as if he’s answering a phone call -One night he just said “Cabbage” which is weird because he doesn’t know the english word for that when he’s awake. -After spooning me: “You have a nice butt” -”Who is that in the corner?” (terrifying) -”Watch out for the red lady” (even more terrifying) -Sometimes he will say things in German and it sounds like he’s speaking Parseltongue -One time I actually think he said something in Parseltongue -One time he talked about buying a ticket to “everywhere” and then just said “hello?” after two minutes of silence -And my all time favorite: ”This is MY yogurt, Satan”
Concept: It’s season 3, no one becomes the black paladin because the black lion is out of commission for some reason, and the BP suit disappeared with Shiro.
Instead, Team Voltron focuses their efforts on getting Shiro back, which involves several somewhat perilous missions. During these missions each paladin gets to showcase their individual leadership traits and further develop as people.
Headcannon that at least some of Yuuri’s fans have always found his awkwardness endearing
“It was so cute, I walked up an said he was my fave and he immediately looked over his shoulder like I couldn’t be talking to him, then pointed to himself like, ‘Me?’” #ProtectKatsukiYuuri
“As he skated by during warmups, I held up my sign and yelled as loud as I could, ‘I LOVE YOU YUURI!!!’ and GUYS I SCARED HIM HE ALMOST FELL because of me i felt bad but it was also the most adorable thing i’ve ever seen (̂ ˃̥̥̥ ˑ̫ ˂̥̥̥ )̂ “
“Our awkward skating son”
“He’s like ten years older than you?”
“Katsuki Yuuri is too precious for this world”
“I want to bundle him in blankets and keep him safe forever”
@ v-nikiforov “Please tell us you bundle our precious boy up and protect him”

I did this before my exams started so I could upload it today. And about not making anything for you. I lied. Sorry. I wanted to make a surprise. I hope you like it!
You mean so much to me, and I’m sooo glad I met you. You were the first friend I ever made here, and I’m happy that we still are. You’re more than a friend to me. You’re part of my family. My lovely and adorable Big Sister!
