Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 09, 2015
Budgies aren't the normal go-to pet, but I acquired Charlie after my cousin bought it and soon realised she didn't want the responsibility for the little charmer.
He was bright and chatty, although never 'spoke'. I think I cleaned him out about once a week—he kept himself pretty clean and we lined the cage with disposable cover.
At night, a large tea-towel was placed over his cage to keep out the light and he slept snugly every night!
