Sukay, thanks for worrrying about them both - I was worried about Heather, as she was so upset when he disappeared and had to put the stuff away. But now she's on cloud nine and just hopping all over the place. Oreo (the hamster - he looks like an oreo cookie - LOL) is happily napping at the moment and will come alive again as the evening approaches. I'm sure Heather will want to take him out of the cage when she gets home so she can cuddle him for a while.
It so amazing how pets, even the littlest ones, can make us so happy. You are so right Lyn - unconditional love - there's nothing like it.
Lyn, I'm glad you got your bird to come to you, she knew what she wanted and knew who to go to in order to get it - LOL.
We spoil all of our animals - 2 dogs - one is a basset hound and black lab mix (Yes, he's a funny looking dog) and 9 years old and always know when I'm not doing well. He is right underfoot or sleeping on the bedroom floor while I'm sleeping. He's my protector. My other dog is a grey hound and black lab mix and will be 4 years old in January. She is an absolute riot - she talks back to us, so playful, so kissy, she'll actually pin us down w/her paw in order to give us a good kissin. When I sleep, she is right next to me. We have a cat who is about 15 years old and is supposed to be my daughter's cat, but she's really ended up being my hubby's cat. She follows him all over the place like the dogs; she meows at him when she wants to be petted by him. She even argues with him - during the winter he won't let her out at night because it's too cold. But she will stand at the door while he's in the kitchen and meow to go out, he'll say no, she'll meow again, he'll say no again - this will continue until he's done in the kitchen. I just laugh at him because he's arguing with a CAT. But it's funny to listen too. They all get little treats here and there. We just love our animals.
