Our pigeons changed my life. My credo is… if an animal in need comes into my karma, I am going to help it. That’s why we had bees for 18 years and why I care so much about raising awareness about animal musks in perfumery. So, when Polka Dot walked through my cat door with a broken wing, I embraced him with open arms and rehabilitated him. I knew that he would always be my love of the birdy world!
We built an aviary so we could have a home for more pigeons. Polka Dot welcomed his new wife, Paloma to the aviary. King Louis recently died – rest in peace, sweetie. He was Pearl’s husband. We just brought home a new partner for Pearl – his name is Horatio. They are enjoying their life together, and they’re a great love match!
Our pigeons delight us and make us laugh. They’re little lovers who mate for life, and they are so silly and funny. Pigeons are some of the most maligned animals in the natural world, but they are here because of US! People domesticate and race pigeons, and the large percentage who never make it home are very vulnerable. Pigeons raised in captivity never learn to forage, so when they can’t find their way home, they will either starve or become prey. There are so many beautiful pigeons who need homes. If you want to learn more or adopt some adorable pigeons, I love Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions!
So, you see, hanging out with my animals has a profound impact on my life. They also inspire my business, and I share it all with you, my dear Purrfumery friends!
