GCC LOVES orange juice!!

My GCC loves orange juice... This is a special treat. She only gets a few drops 2-3 times a year...she goes bananas for it!...lol last night she was on my shoulder while I mixed myself a glass of 1/2 orange juice 1/2 diet soda... ( all the taste 1/2 the calories and it's fizzy...lol ) and just about jumped into my glass! I broke down and took a small bottle cap and put about 1/8th of a tsp in it for her... Did you know that even without lips, birds can suck?..lol she sucked that juice out of that cap so fast!! Then she almost turned herself inside out trying to get mine... She was not a happy camper when I drank it all without sharing... Even tho she tried her hardest!

That is so cute! I fostered a gcc that was crazy about bell peppers (like orange and red). She also liked juice! I think if you get organic juice with no added sugar, it should be fine to offer a small amount here and there. Some people soak the "soak and serves" in carrot juice, etc.

Thanks guys... Yes she knows what she like and is not afraid to let you know! Funny thing is she recognized it in the bottle as soon as I took it out of the fridge.. She has only ever seen it before a few drops at a time in a little 3 tbspoon cup for measuring cough syrup... I bet she thought she hit the jackpot!
