I realized when I got my very first animal that from that point on it was all for their benefit. I got up and went to work to provide for them, I rented a place to live so they had shelter and a territory and stayed home to take them to the vet if they were sick. In short everything that I did was done with their wellbeing in mind.

That's the story of the Rickeybird, Wolf... I really resonate.

I didn't realize fully what I had gotten into, but, I knew I would give it my all. Living spaces, work schedules, family stuff, recreation... the first thought was always...

What about the Rickeybird?

Because, while other people or animals had multiple resources, I was his one and only.

Well, I love all my animals but, in my family and friends circle, everybody knows that the birds always come first. The reason for this is that their needs are more exact and demanding than the other animals and, of course, people... I mean, I can be a bit late for the dogs dinner but I can't be late for the birds' because, if I am, it gets too dark for them. And my dogs are with me all the time, when I sleep, when I take a shower, when I am on the computer, cleaing, etc while the cats merely allow me to share THEIR home - but the birds need out-of-cage as well as special one-on-one time at specific times during the day so I have to make sure that there is nothing that requires my attention at those times. They might not really like the idea of coming second to birds but they are all used to it by now and seldom complain any longer (like we say in Spanish: Les gane por cansancio - I won by tiring them out - :lol: )

I dont think its finished just because you didnt understand where Cage Cleaner was coming from when she said to go back and reread, or when she pointed to where to look for your own answers. Most people do not want to debate and some people do not want to be told they must find links for someone else. But that doesnt mean they dont want to continue on a topic that is of interest to them.

We can all talk about if we think our parrots enjoy training, its a great topic. We can help each other to understand our parrots better, and the role training plays. We all have different perspectives and what we say will resonate with different people.


Great topic agreed. More productive elsewhere.

:lol: This argument was almost two years ago, my dear. It's really not healthy to keep on going back to old arguments...

Btw Deb check your PM’s. Might be a bit before we reconnect but that’s how these things go. Hopefully the alerts go through.
