Leaving My Conure for Several Days
I have a 2-year-old Green Cheek Conure named Tiki Bob. We are very close. I work from home and he "assists" me most of the day, so we spend a lot of time together.
I am leaving town for six days to take part in an out-of-state wedding and am very concerned about being separated from Tiki Bob. Yes, I will miss him -- but I am worried about how he will handle this. He will not be left alone. My husband and sons will be here, and he likes to hang out with them, but will he think I've abandoned him?
Also, my husband and sons will be joining me out-of-town, but not until later. Tiki Bob will be without any of his humans for two days. The house won't be empty. His parakeet brother will be here, as will his cat and dog siblings. Of course, the birds will be safely caged! (Our dogs and cat do not bother the birds, but we never leave them unsupervised or accessible to each other.)
Tiki Bob is so flock-oriented and sees me as his main flock member...I am really concerned about this separation. Any words of wisdom and advice appreciated.
