Parrots not good for seniors.

Postby Pajarita » Sat Sep 02, 2017 9:17 am

A list of what pets are not good for seniors and parrots are number one! And, if you think about it,
they are right because parrots are, by far, the hardest companion animal to keep healthy and happy!

Not to mention, seniors have fragile skin, not meant for any occasional parrot bite. Plus, parrots outlive them and may wind up among the hundreds abandoned to shelters.

Hell, that is all I need is for someone to decide what pet I will have or not have. There are a lot of regular contributors to this forum that meet the "retired and senior" criteria and they have more than just a few parrots. DanaandPod check your birthdate, you´re closing in. Parjarita, you may know birds, but you don´t know all people. I will decide what pet I have not some article or people on a forum that have no idea who I am. If this offends anyone, live with it, that´s just what us seniors do, voice our opinions.
