We got back home Wednesday night. I picked up Brimley from the pet store where he boarded while we went to visit hubby's Mom. He didn't see me at first and he was so sad. When I took him out of the cage, he just kept kissing me. (BTW, for those who don't know, Brimley is a bird.) He had lost weight (as he always does when we go away). The pet store feeds him bird food. He's used to getting more variety of fresh fruits and veggies as well as some people food. When I got him home, he ate like a little piggy. He had banana, honeydew melon seeds, cucumber, Babybel cheese, peas and Cheerios. He sat on my shoulder the whole time until I had to leave to go to work. Then he cried and didn't want me to leave. I felt so guilty leaving him even for just four hours.
