Message:All,

Thanks for the nice replies.   I surely hope that I see my Ava on the other side.   I also believe in the other side. So, I hope our pets make it there as well that we love so much.   Its been a rough weekend.   I got Ava when I was 14, so he has been with me most of my life.   Great pet, and highly recommend conures to fellow pet lovers. He would sleep on my shoulder often, including our last night together.   The vet I took him to about 6 weeks ago about the sores said he had not seen a conure over 20 years old in his office.   So, I was curious how long people have had there birds.   What I read is they usually live 25 to 30 years.
