This is my story......

Last year we would leave Oscars cage open at the top as he would stay in his cage. We tried to see if he would leave it by going away for 30min, then 1hr, then 2hrs. He would stay in his cage. We would go out on weekends with his cage open and when we came back he would be snuggled in his cage looking all innocent. One day we tried turning on the TV and it didn't work! I did some trouble shooting, looked at the back and found out that the little bugger was chewing the AV cables and chewed them in half. Looking all innocent? Yea right. The cage stays locked now, not only because the TV (I thought was funny) but we now have a spunky cat.
You thought he was so innocent, Oscar has taught you a lesson



Were you not afraid to leave Oscar outside his cage when no one was home? Birds are so unpredictable. We had a member who's bird chewed an electrical cord, injuring the bird badly, luckily the bird survived. Please read the post by Aussie Ben +- 2 weeks ago
So you think your house is "bird proof" think again. Fortunately Ben was present , training Buddy, when an unpredictable accident occurred. Luckily it had a happy ending, but had Ben not been present, Buddy would have had a tragic ending.

My house rule for Mishka
Whenever Mishka is outside her cage, someone must be present at all times. She is never left on her own.

Re: Funny eclectus stories

I had to step out yesterday for only a few minutes and Rosie was on top of her cage. I briefly thought and then put her back in the cage. One could be forever sorry if you let the bird out with no supervision and left briefly only to return and find the bird caught or chewing on a cord or any other of the many many unsafe activities that could occur.

I don't know what it is about the vacuum, but it is awfully funny lol.

I agree 100% but as stated in my earlier post, Oscar would stay in his cage, now he stays in his cage when we are not around, and when he is out we are around him.

Re: Funny eclectus stories

Why do I laugh when Eddie does something 'bad'? lol...something is wrong with my head....

Eddie loves his cashews, I buy small containers of raw ones from the local F&V shop. The clear plastic container they come in is similar to those salad/sauce containers you might get with take-out, you know the little disposable ones with the press on lids. Well i have been giving him the container to open, he seems to enjoy the challenge of figuring out how to pull off the lid and recieve a tasty treat. This morning he was sitting on the kitchen table while I was making his breakfast. I gave him the container so he could have something to do, He had a great time throwing it around. Eventually the lid came off and he was presented with his reward, BUT instead of gently taking a cashew out, he decided it would be more fun to grab the open container and throw it off the side of the table.....CASHEWS EVERYWHERE! As usual he just gave me a cheeky look and then chowed down on the few that were left on the table, while I went and picked them all up, one by one Even though he had thrown the 'not so cheap' cashews all over the floor, all I could do was laugh.

I would have loved to see him trying to open the container LoL
At least he had the sense to eat what was left on the counter.

Hey cashews ARE EXPENSIVE I SELL THEM
(my other business besides the forum) LoL

Sometimes I put 4 nuts in front of Mishka
a cashew plain - a pecan nut - a walnut - an almond plain

Guess which ones always chooses

Oh sorry busy selling nuts now tell you later
