    Leela And Fry

    Hey everyone! In our introduction I told the story of Leela who we rescued from circling from home to home and living in a small cage without anything to do.

    Taming A Lovie

    Hello,  I bought Rin on the 11th of April 2015, so he's only been with me for a few days.  So far, he's become more comfortable (I think). His usual behavior is this: He chirps/sings a lot, climbs around his cage, hops on his perches, plays with his toys, stays on his perch quite chilled out...
