Unfortunately and all too often I see cases where a young person, much younger than this, has purchased a pet without giving due consideration to the 'big picture'. The end result is often very painful and hard to take.

my thoughts exactly, I bought Kila after spending several weeks considering why I wanted her, and what it would take and whether or not I would be up to the task of possible caring for a bird for 15 years of more.
