Charles and I both wanted birds as children but we weren't allowed to for different reasons. Now that Charles and I are adults and have a place for birds we got some. We really enjoy listening to them and they are quite low maintenance.
The whiter one is possibly male. We don't know the gender of the blue one.
We don't have names for either of them so if you have any good ideas we are more than willing to consider them.
Charles and I also got a cat to kill voles, gophers, and mice. Charles' sister started taking care of three abandoned kittens and so we volunteered to take one. The kitten lives in the garage but we let her in the kitchen a few times a day to entertain Charlie while I get things done. It is pretty cute to watch them chase each other.
She is pretty cute but we don't really have a good name for her yet. She was temporarily named leopard because of her spots, but we don't find that it rolls off the tongue and it is a little too manly for a girl cat. If you have any name suggestions, we are open to ideas.
Our cat has discovered that we have birds :)
