The story begins back in mid-2017. Kiwi’s owner, 19-year-old Maura Hennelly, noticed that her little lovebird seemed lonely. And so, she decided to get him a girlfriend to keep him company.

Hennelly adopted a colorful peach-faced lovebird and introduced her to Kiwi.

At first, things went well. Kiwi and the other bird got along, and they seemed to be bonding.

But then, Kiwi’s girlfriend suddenly decided that she didn’t want to be with him anymore. Hennelly was forced to find a new home for Kiwi’s now-ex-girlfriend.

Hennelly was determined to find the right match for Kiwi, and she scoured the internet looking for the perfect bird. In September 2017, she found a beautiful black and white bird.

And as the old saying goes, opposites attract!

At first, Siouxsie was a bit shy around Kiwi, and she tried to bite him if he got too close to her. But eventually, Kiwi won her over, and soon the pair was inseparable. The two spent all their time cuddled up together, and it was clear that they loved each other deeply.

Hennelly shared a few photos of Kiwi and his ‘goth girlfriend’ on Twitter. The tweet went massively viral, receiving over 400,000 likes and 130,000 retweets.

For the next eight months, the birds quietly lived their lives together. They built a nest in their cage and spent most of their time relaxing in there. Hennelly sporadically shared updates about this power couple on her Twitter and Instagram pages.

In April 2018, Hennelly made a big announcement on her Twitter page: Siouxsie was pregnant!

Siouxsie laid her four eggs in May, and then she spent a month incubating them. At the beginning of June 2017, the little birds began to hatch. All four birds were happy and healthy, and their parents were so excited!

The baby birds and their parents are all doing very well. Hennelly is planning on adopting the baby birds out to good homes once they’re old enough and weaned.

Siouxsie and Kiwi are both great parents, and they enjoy spending time with their little ones. Hennelly shared a sweet video showing the two birds with their babies.

In mid-July 2018, Hennelly discovered that Siouxsie is most likely pregnant again, which means more adorable half-goth babies!

Kiwi and Siouxsie have a truly incredible love story, filled with all the ups and downs found in the best romance novels. We’re so happy that these two sweet animals have found love together. We’re also glad they have such a great home with a mom who loves them so much.
