I have always been quite a fan of birds. I remember owning a blue budgie when I was about 5. Within what must have been two months, I went through about 4 budgies. It was like perfect clockwork.It always happened friday nights.So on a saturday morning when I woke up , shuffling to the kitchen, I was to find out Pinochio (the cursed name of the dying budgies), had not made it through the night. I later heard that my mother often rushed out to buy a new budgie, as apparently their lifespan is much shorter than I believed it to be. I did start a budgie graveyard in the back of the garden though, where I since then buried all my deceased animals.That is where Pinochio I,II, III and IV now rest in peace.
