Dear Parrots magazine,

My New Family

Who says animals don’t give you great comfort? It was three years ago, when sadly I lost my husband and have been living on my own ever since. This has been an extremely difficult time for me as my health has also suffered. Needless to say depression set in and I reluctantly went on to anti-depressants from my doctor.

But then something fantastic happened. A friend of one of my neighbours suggested I get a parrot, as he had two Cockatiels. This was something that had never occurred to me, but I thought let’s take a look.

He kept his two Cockatiels in his house and as he was a widower, they gave him great comfort and companionship. This got me seriously thinking and I was soon down to my garden centre to look at the birds they had. I suppose it was love at first sight when I saw these two gorgeous looking Cockatiels and I knew I just had to take them home, which I did.

That was just over a year ago now and these two little feathered friends have completely changed my life. I am no longer living on my own and now have a new family and am off my tablets!
