Homemade Playgym

I was bored today so I had a thought. I turned an old bird cage stand into a playgym for Cricket and he totally loves it. It took a long time to wrap the cotton yarn around the arch part, so glad thats done. Since i shelled out the big bucks for the new cage coming next week I thought i would forget about the acrylic play gym for a while and make this with stuff i had on hand.

How nice, i love him too. He has been so much fun, i can't wait to get home from work some days so i cam get my bird love. It's so strange to think a bird can be capable of such wonderful interaction. When he snuggles into my hair or sits on my chest wiating for scritches, my heart just melts.
