If you are a regular reader of my blog, you will know that Bogart (our cat) is like my baby. He's moody and cute and hilarious and mischievous. He loves to cuddle, but only on his time and he thinks this is his house and we just live in it... but I still love him.
David really wanted to get a bird and as much as I was hesitant because of my lil Bogie, I gave in when we actually visited an exotic bird shop on Monday when we met our newest member of the family, Cosmo, a 3 month old cockatiel.
We initially named him Merle, as in Merle Haggard, but on Tuesday when I was cleaning the house I put Creedence Clearwater Revival on our record player and the bird went nuts. I mean, would not shut up. He especially loved the more upbeat songs. Between songs or record flipping, he got quiet. I took a few videos of it because it was so funny and after talking it over with Dave, we decided that his new name should be Cosmo (if you're a fan of CCR, you would know that one of their albums is Cosmo's Factory) because we all love CCR and we love Cosmo Kramer on Seinfeld. So that was it, he's now Cosmo.
I made this little video of Bogart and Cosmo meeting for the first time. I hope you enjoy it.
