Stilly, we used to have a budgie. His name was Cactus and he lived about 8-9 years. One day he just up and died, which is pretty much how little birds do. We haven't had any more birds since, but we've talked about it, since we liked his chirping. I'll admit, though, he was sort of messy.

We had two cats at the time, and they never bothered him. We hung the cage where they couldn't get at it. Even when I brought it down for cleaning, though, they weren't too interested.

Saw another hummer this morning. :-)
