A little friend

I used to live alone. I don't mind alone, though I don't like lonely. Not to worry, I now share my house, and she's a little cracker. Voice a bit raucous and penetrating, and she has a tendency to do little poos everywhere. But I don't mind, a small price to pay for beauty, as Butch Cassidy said, though he was talking about a bank, not a defecating zebra finch. She's cute and feisty,. but she is not finger-tame - what female is? I am not sure how long I will keep her - I am looking after her for a friend - but while she's here, I am trying to enjoy her company. At least she's someone to talk to.
