I'm Not a Penguin!

I don't know what these humans are up to, but it has been cold in the apartment all day long! I don't like the cold! My ancestors are from Australia, where it is nice and warm, and even though my family has been in this country for generations, more than a century, we never got used to the cold temperatures, let alone snow. One of the reasons we put up with our humans, beside the food, of course, is that they keep us warm. That is their job!

The Tall One usually likes to be warm, too, which is definitely one of her few positive characteristics, but today, it does not seem to bother her. I gave her a dirty look when she finally came home. Didn't she hear the wind howling around the building?

At least she understood what I was trying to say, but since it is freezing in here, it certainly did not take a rocket scientist to figure it out! She looked at me apologetically and mumbled something about the humans putting in a new boiler. I don't want to be boiled! I just want to be nice and warm! I'm a cockatiel, for crying out loud, not a penguin!

I have to go, my feet are getting cold!

Brrr..that sounds chilly! Can you snuggle together with Miss Prissy to keep warm?

Usually, that would be a yes, but Miss Prissy has been preoccupied with the pink things, so I'm on my own. Luckily, the silly humans finally turned the heat back on, and things are back to normal.
