A Partner for My Lonely Grandmother

My grandmother lives by herself. She always gets excited whenever any of her family visits, but when they have to leave, she gets sad again. I’ve invited her to move in with me various times, but she doesn’t want to be a burden and would rather keep her independence. I didn’t want her to be lonely each time there was no one there, so I decided to get her a pet. The only kind of pet that someone like my grandmother would like is an exotic bird. I decided to get her a parrot, so I went to https://exoticbirds.life/parrots/ to learn more about how to care for them.

I surprised my grandmother with the parrot when I came to her house and she was thrilled to see it. She wanted the parrot to say all kinds of phrases, but the parrot wouldn’t do anything but make sounds. I guessed that the bird had to get used to seeing my grandmother and listening to her before it would start saying things. I didn’t see my grandmother again until a week later, and by that time, the parrot was saying all kinds of funny things.

The parrot and my grandmother were almost like a comedy duo. My grandmother would say something and the parrot would follow up with a funny phrase. Sometimes she puts the parrot on her shoulder, and she puts on an eye patch and talks like a pirate. They could probably make an act and take it on the road. People would get a kick out of seeing them on stage. Since the bird is with my grandmother all of the time, she doesn’t get sad whenever anyone has to leave after visiting her, because she has a permanent conversation partner. After seeing her with the parrot, I wouldn’t mind having one of my own.
