So on Friday (the 8th) I was out with Mike and we were in Walmart and I was picking up bedding for my KSB.
Anyways, somehow the topic of Parrots came up and Mike just blurted that he never wants to have a bird again. I was kind of shocked.
I explained to him that I wanted to eventually get an African Grey when we got a bigger house.
I was surprised because Mike loved Hermes!
We talked and I explained to Mike that said African Grey would be out 50% of the day (only in it's cage to sleep basically) but then Mike asked how that would work with the Cats.
This got me thinking that having birds again is going to be more difficult than I thought.
Any smaller Parrots (like Budgies or 'Tiels) I think I would have to have in an aviary which definitely won't work in Edmonton as it gets WAY too cold in the winter.
As for a larger Parrot I don't know how to make that work unless the Cats got bitten and learned to stay away. But I wouldn't want that to happen because I don't want the Parrot to get scratched.
Bleh, I don't know. Ideas? Lol
I really don't know how my Cats would be with a larger Parrot. They act pretty predatory when they see birds outside through the window but when we had Hermes there was one time that Mike was taking Hermes downstairs but Hermes took off and landed on the floor in between the two Cats and they just sat there staring at Hermes.
So confused! I wouldn't want my Grey to be an aviary bird but I don't know how I would make this work!
