    Your post reminds me of the animals I’ve met.
    I’ve had cats for over 60 years and now am a foster of several. One foster even raised heck until I realized I’d been adopted.

    Your bird reminds me of my friend’s gray Amazon. She too had a foot deformity and a heck of a personality. Very noisy when we’d leave the house to wander outside.

    I’ve had turtles, briefly. My favorite was “Speedy” a box turtle. Apparently one of the snapping turtles had trimmed the toes off of her one forefoot. She’d eat strawberries and cat food. She’d go “scrape-bump” around the house. I think it is neat that you can tell the sex by the shape of the lower shell and by the color of their eyes, though Speedy hadn’t read the book and didn’t have either color.

    I became horse-crazy early in life but I didn’t get one until I was 19. He was a Morab and a real character. Horses are more like cats as far as bonding goes, I think. I swear he was smarter than I was. He certainly was so at times. He understood English and not just “walk” and “trot”. I sure can’t afford a horse any more but I miss having one in my life.

      Oh yes – they will let you know when you’ve been “chosen!” 🙂 I have never had the opportunity to interact closely with horses but I have heard some amazing stories – how lucky you have been to have a close relationship there along with all your other wonderful non-human besties. Speedy sounds like a sweetheart – I have a feeling my Bruce would have loved to make her acquaintance. <3
