In our future
Not right away, but I do see one of these in our future.
We babysat Bird Bird for a few days to see if I would show any signs of an allergic reaction. Nothing, and he was kind of fun to have around. He isn't messy, makes lovely cheeping noises, can say his name (and so, theoretically, can be taught to say other things), sits on my shoulder or the top of the laptop, reacts positively to the piano playing (the sax created one moment of fear, but then was fine too).
I think it could be fun to have a pet who actually likes us. The chickens are functional and tolerate us because we feed them, the gerbils really are trying to escape from our attention all the time, and the fish...well, he's just a wet fish. We'll see.
Bird Bird, it was fun to have you in the house!
