Hi I just wondering. When you get an new African grey parrot. Dont they remind of the last one. I'm not sure if iv got the heart to get other Harrie. I think I would get upset very time it reminded me of Harrie. I feel that if I ever do that iv replaced her.
Iv wanted an African gray parrot ever seen I was a little girl. I never knew they could talk  until I really meet one.that was just a bonus. Then I finally got Harrie .
Apart from my cat that I really love more than anyone in the world. Harrie meet her and loved her too. She sadly passed away. Harrie had learnt her moew which made me love Harrie even more. She never forgot her. Always said her name. Did kisses at her. Losing Harrie was also like losing her again.
Harrie helped me alot when she passed because I knew would still hear her through Harrie.
Getting other one just makes me feel bad if I did one day wanted one.
It has olny been also 2 months. Everyone keeps saying to just me. Just another one. Like she nothing and it's doesn't matter because there's more.
Hate it when people see it like that.
Not sure if I'm making any sense.

Hi macey
By no means will you be replacing Harrie
And thereís not much chance of the next one bein the same
Iv got 8 greys here in my care and no 2 are the same
They have complete different personalities and they all say different things and even play with different toys even though they all share the same play area .
When I lost the one Grey I had chosen myself (the rest are rehomes or petshop birds) i said I would never get another as I wouldnít want to compare
But to be honest you donít compare them to one another as they are all individuals
And yes I have had another baby Grey since and heís nothing like Treacle was
Good luck Hun , once a Grey steals your heart then only a Grey will mend it too xxx

After I lost my Yvie I couldn't stand the house without the noise of her, it made losing her even harder, so I got a baby within a couple of months. It helped me so much and I never felt I was replacing her as you can never replace them, but it filled the void.

My baby is 2 now and an absolute joy, there is no comparison between them so you really don't compare, personalities are so vastly different.

I would say get one, people who don't have birds will never understand the bond we form and the pain the loss causes. Make sure you do lots of reading to ensure you fully understand what they need, I know you sometimes felt a bit confused with what Harrie needed.

Keep us informed, I'm sure a new companion will help you cope x

Thank you :) it's good to know they are different . Not sure if I read your message wrong. do you think I did something wrong to Harrie maybe that's why she die :(. Iv got books and read as much as I could before having her and after I had got her.i couldn't stop checking. I was just making sure I was doing right before giving anything to her olny because I didn't want to do anything wrong.The books don't tell you everything.
I made a book I made called it Harries book lol.
I would write everything down i learnt and checked with people on here.
Just seemed like that because you said to
 Reading more about them.do think it my fault.
I do still feel to blame.

No of course I donít think youíre to blame, donít make yourself feel worse. I just remember you asking lots of questions so thought it would be useful for you to research, I didnít realise you had already done that :)

When we lost our Joey, who was a rescue bird the house was not the same, he used to talk all the time and call the cat, and chat for hours. So after a few months we got a another African Grey  and called her KIKI and she has her own personality, and she is real chatterbox and she flies onto you and drops her head to say come on then scratch my head.
