How Flik Came Into My Life

One day I was at home, watching TV doing nothing. Then my mother calls me from work and tells me a co-worker of hers found a little bird. I was used to rescuing little animals, so I hopped on the bus as fast as I could.

I got to my mother's job and they showed me the little guy. He was a dirty little green and yellow parakeet with clipped wings and a busted leg. All shy and quiet, not normal.

They told me they saw some kids throwing rocks at him and holding him down so a car could squish him. Luckily now he was in good hands. I got a ride to the vet and he treated him and Flik was given a clean bill of health.

After buying a cage and food at Wal-Mart, I took him back to my Mother's job. Two people wanted to keep him, but I grew attached to him when he drank at the same time I did. He seemed to take to me too. I was longing for a companion animal and ironically enough on Earth Day, God gave me my first personal rescue adoption.

So that's my short story. Flik is now a spoiled and happy budgie with full wings and cute working feet. And a good set of vocal cords ^_^.
