Meet The New Additions To Our Family!

We went out today to get some issues with hardware sorted. One Kindle Fire had broken, and one iPad was not switching on. My darling Hubby Dearest has the gift of the gab and can usually get what he’s after!

We also needed to buy football boots for Lil Princess who is starting football training this week.

Never thought we’d come home with two additions that were alive, rather than two new electrical devices!

What could it be?!

Meet Heer (the blue girl) and Ranhja (the green boy), our two new parrotlets! Β They are six months old and pretty much fully grown.

And what of our fur-baby Sonu Singh?

Sonu Singh thinks I’m his bed!

 

Well, he was intrigued! What were these funny little flying things that were chirruping away?

What’s going on??

He came over to take a closer look too…

Who ARE you!?

I tried to get the phone into the cage for a closer look… and he was there in the background too!

I can see you…

They are pretty little things, a fledgling couple who could, if we decide to, us a nest box to mate and lay eggs!

How did we end up with them?

Well, we popped into a pet shop that just caught our eye as we wandered around the shopping centre, and the next thing you know, I saw these two, and they just melted my heart. They aren’t too big, the size of budgies, and they were cuddled up together in a perch.

I fell in love.

And Hubby Dearest took full advantage of my soft spot! If he had his way we;d have dogs, rabbits, a tortoise, chickens, a full menagerie!

So, after walking around the shops we ended up back there and left a bit financially lighter, but fuller in the family way!

Here they are, settling in to their new home!

Now to the names… Why Heer and Ranjha?

Well, like Sonu Singh got his Punjabi name, living in a Punjabi family, I needed an ethnic pairing for these two too!

Love stories always seem so tragic in our culture, and there is a story of Heer Ranjha. Heer a girl from a rich family, and Ranjha a son of a farmer, fall in love, and like Romeo and Juliet, they die trying to keep their love alive.

Heer Ranhja

Here’s hoping the tragic ending is not synonymous to the names!

But don’t worry, we won’t be forgetting Sonu Singh, he’ll still be on my bed every night commanding attention!

Naughty cat, sticking his tongue out!

And FYI, we got the football boots, a refund for the Kindle… the iPad is a To Be Continued saga!

I’ll keep you posted on the continuing saga of our furry/feathered family Peeps!

    I just love animal stories! My home would be filled with pets, if only I could get my husband on board. For now, we have our pup inside, and our 13 chickens and 1 duck in the backyard. I keep pushing to buy a hobby farm so I can be surrounded by lovely creatures. We shall see. Thanks for sharing pics of your two new family members.

      They are! Trying to get the kids to understand that we have to give them a few days before teaching them to skateboard/play basketball/do tricks lol! They don’t even want to step up onto our fingers yet because they need to get used to us, and this furry big brother of theirs too, who is intrigued!!!

      Thank you Annette! Just uncovered the cage this morning and found them both on the perch. Ranjha the boy is still very sleepy, Heer is awake and looking around. Lil Man said Ranjha is just like his dad (Hubby Dearest enjoys his sleep lol!) Sonu has attempted to ‘greet’ them a couple of times, and is now content to sit on the table, watching the outside, then turning around to check out his two feathered siblings!

    Wow…we have done some impulse buying over the years…but never came home with new life forms. Good for you. They are beautiful, and I love the story behind the names. Watch out for alone time with the kitty.

      Lol I know… never done that kind of impulse buy before! But yes we’ve covered the cage for the night and will shut the door so he can’t go there until we are with him in the morning! Fun and games ahead!
