« But I Thought That Was in Another Galaxy | Main | An Update of Sorts »


On my way out the door to work one of my neighbors stoped me and asked what kind of "creature" I had in my apartment. I didn't think Samanthat was being that noisy, but apparently she's been screeching in the evenings. I'm really not sure what to do.

I've already fallen in love, and she's such a sweetheart and just wonderfully silly and fun to have around. But I can't have my neighbors being harrased by her either. The building is so well put together that I really wasn't worried about the noise thing. The apartments hardly touch each other and I think I've only heard anyone else once or twice. But I guess they're not as good as I thought.

She and Mai-Tai are not getting along either. At first they were just ignoring each other. But today Samantha actually chased Mione around, beak open, making like she was going to bite her. Can't have that! Miss Mione needs to be safe too. And Samantha's so much bigger, if I ever wasn't there... I don't even want to think about what might happen.

I'm just feeling very conflicted about everything right now. I kinda feel like I'm neglecting the rest of the zoo to take care of the new resident. Everyone's still getting their cages cleaned, and fresh food and water and all that. I'm on the floor with the bunnies a lot (Samantha seems to get along with them just fine so all of us will hang out on the floor together) I just feel kinda bad.

Of course it doesn't help that I'm out of meds (haven't had any since Saturday) and my phone isn't working so I can't call my dr. to find out why she didn't call a refill in for me. If it was local I'd just call from work, but I'm not about to call long distance from my work phone.

I wanted to do this, I wanted to help this wonderful birdie-girl. I feel like I'm a failure if I can't. I hate even writting this down. But it's all running through my head so I really need to. I need you guys to know what's going on with me.

I'm worried about leaving her for a week when I have vacation in December. Will she flip when she doesn't have someone to play with every day? When it's just someone coming to do food and water? What if she screams the whole time I'm gone?

I feel horrible and I just don't know what to do. I hate this.
