Subject:Spoke with the vet
Message:Hi guys! Midori is still acting strange, but then we just got in after being gone several hours. You know, he doesn't try to bite me, he just acts afraid. I spoke with the vet before we left and she said it sounded to her as if Midori has suddenly bonded with my Cockatiel, Cheecks. Cheecks was acting weird, a week or so ago (I posted about it) and just this morning let Midori preen him on top of the head, which he has never done before. If Midori got close to him he would hiss at him and try to bite. The vet said that no matter how good a human is to a bird, they are not as good as another bird. So, she suggested that we seperate them and put Cheeks in another room. Well, he has screamed and cried like a baby. I feel SO bad. But, we may have to take him somewhere else altogether to see if this resolves. She said as long as Midori could hear him, it may not work. She also said that where Midori and I were so close, that if this is the problem, he may be confused as to what my role is. He may not be sure where exactly I fit into the picture now. Guys, this is killing me. I feel like I'm punishing them. When I suggested that I wait until Tuesday, for some reason, I thought today was Sunday. Rough couple of days here. If this doesn't seem to work, then she said we would have him re-evaluated. We'll give it a shot and see what happens. I just don't think I can go through another lose right now.
Thanks!
