Miguel joined my household on August 26, 1999 at the age of five months, catapulting me into my latest position: BirdJanitor®.

Miguel was hand-raised by the folks at Birds Plus - 14041 Burbank Boulevard, Van Nuys, California 91401 - (818) 901-1147.  I highly recommend them to anyone wishing to add a feathered child to their family.

Mischa and Simba were never the same... and they probably never forgave me, nor did Callie, for adopting a bird as big as they are!.  We're still working on "here kitty, kitty."
