Going to visit family for a few days, so I’ll be out of town. This means I’ll be away from the birds, so posts will be a little slow until Wednesday.

Day 9 - Favourite Steel type
I drew all my big favourite steels types last year so there weren’t many left to choose from. ‘D
Skarmory is so freaking cool. A badass bird made of steel. How cool is that? I’ve always liked Skarmory, used one a few times, too. An awesome Pokemon, I have nothing else to add.

Can you explain the joy a bird as a companion can bring to you? I've had a tiel but it's really hard to grasp the attachment and company you get from one if you have only had dogs and want to be able to explain to my fiance how bonding with one canbe


That is almost an impossible question for me to answer, because while I suppose I could wax poetic or something, it’s sorta incomprehensible for me to understand why someone sorta wouldn’t get it. Mostly that’s because I have like, maybe five memories before Pepper came along. I got him when I was four and I’ve had him for 20 years. I grew up with Pepper, and sometimes I feel like I was partially raised by Pepper and that’s why I’m an oddball, you know?

I’d say the attachment/companionship is a lot like a dog, but also different in some ways. Birds are very intelligent and sensitive. Dogs are too, but where as dogs might look at you as more of a leader, to a bird you’re part of the flock. A bird sorta considers themselves on equal footing with you.

But I think there’s a lot of similar emotions there. I think if someone can understand attachment to a dog, they should be able to recognize that someone can have the same sort of attachment to a bird.

You should find a toy bazooka, so Bazooka can do the "posing with her namesake" thing that Pepper, Popcorn and Marshmallow did.


Haha I should! I’ll be on the lookout for one.
