Beautiful babies. I once had a white face,very light cinnamon pied girl.. Beautiful as! Unfortunately at 2 yrs old she followed my out my door on my thick winter jumper and flew off. I didn't know and couldn't feel her there. She was an absolute darling (her name). I would love to think she found another human as she loved all people, but as she was largely white, probably met her demise.
I have a new tame grey, 1 yr old now. I'm 63 and they can live easily for 30 years. Waiting to see who goes first, me or him. My last grey (9 yrs old) died in a tragic and unusual accident in my home late July 2020. No injury but he couldn't climb up or go down, His heart gave away
He was there through my mother's demise from dementia, she was 96, closer to 97. She died December 2019. He always knew when I was down or upset and would cuddle under my chin. A total cuddle bug. He just knew when I wasn't good. He also knew as Mum was different, just to sit on her knee, not around her, and just stay. Mum used to sing/hum to him, and he was just so switched onto her changes. He was my bestie over another 4 tames before and around. There is always a favourite for reasons we have.
I grieved for so long and hard when Mum was disappearing over the years and Charlie was my rock. When Mum died it was a release for her. I accepted it. But when Charlie died I was inconsolable! He was my rock who understood my emotions throughout that time and after. Have my new Diesel. Love him to bits but can never be like my Charlie. Diesel is there for me, but not in the same way. He will be loved and I am sure, as he grows older, he will come to mean as much to me.
