As we consider adding another rescued bird to our family,
I can't help but be reminded of Audrey Hepburn's pet deer.
I often look at my compassion toward animals as a burden (seriously!)
..and if you spent a day at our house over the summer, you might have seen why.
But I can't just let them go on being homeless or neglected, can I?
I have always felt a pull toward rescuing animals.
Truthfully the only thing that could successfully have me convinced to move to the country
is the promise of turning our home completely into an animal sanctuary!
Aside from that, I am a city girl through and through.
The text I received last night about this bird made my heart sink.
Maybe I can hire someone to take lots of glamorous photos of me and all my birds,
just like the ones of Audrey and Pippin.
(Try as I might, I just could not find any photos of her cleaning up the Pippin poo.
Or of him waking her up in the middle of the night for some attention.
Or all the houseplants he snacked on and consequently killed.
Or her signing off on all those vet bills.
Ahh well. I'm sure they had their moments. Right?)
