Blue Bird of Happiness by Berengaria Brown
Roland Clarke has a cat, Mr. Claws. Michael Taggart inherits two lovebirds, Bonnie and Clyde, from his sister Adelaide’s friend, when Adelaide takes an unexpected vacation. Bonnie can open the cage door and escape. Michael and Roland both desperately want to get to know each other much better, and on a much deeper level, but it seems the harder they try to plan time together, the more things go wrong.
