Leaving for 4 months
Hello, I have a 1 year old Green Cheek Conure, who is very strongly bonded to me. I live with 2 other roommates whom he knows, but ignores as long as I am around.
I'm strongly considering taking a deployment for work where I can't bring him. The deployment will be for four months, and my roommates have agreed to take care of him if I leave.
I'm worried about the impact this could have on him, since I spend a lot of time with him, and I know my roommates won't be able to give him as much attention as I do.
How harmful would 4 months without me be to not only my relationship with him but also to his overall well being. I really care about him, but the opportunity I'm presented with is too good to pass up.
