How about required reading before you buy a parrot!

Strong bonds take a looong time. Even with dogs who are generally very loyal and loving from the beginning. I have had my dog for 10 years and our bond has changed and grown over the years.
Hiroshi used to be extremely nippy when I first brought him home and now its not even an issue!

Patience really is a virtue and hopefully something all animal caregivers find within themselves.

I couldnt agree more, but not only for parrots, but ALL animals! I see so many dumped iguanas that I really find it hard to not hate people. They do not cost much BUT cost THOUSANDS to keep properly. Most 'pets' only live they dont thrive.

I just wish Sterretjie brought a manual with when she arrived at my house - it would have been so much easier.

Re: Bond forming

I think people that have only had dogs but not cats will be more likely to be the sort of person the OP is talking about. A dog will love anybody who will let it even if they hit it with a stick.

Re: Bond forming

I totally agree with you AD, I just winced a bit when you referred to religion being something that does not need any investment and input from a person's side. I apologise if I misread it and you meant something else

Re: Bond forming

I grew up in a household where my mother beat our golden retriever with a broom, and she'd still come after you and try and play. Looking back, it's sad. . . Now she has eight dogs and it really makes me upset. She would scream back at Wrnts when he screamed, so my parrot developed a "fight or flight" response to it all. He bit for years because of that. She even talked about giving him away, she couldn't take him anymore. I begged and begged, since I was still a minor--to keep him, and she did. But man, did he chew up some door frames! Now he lives with me and my fiancee, and we'd never think of even screaming back at him. He really is a good bird, and likes his alone time-- but we're always in the room with him except at nighttime.

Sorry for that little rant--had to get it out.

Re: Bond forming

Totally agree.

I started researching sunnies 5yrs ago when I fell in love with one in the pet shop. Parrots are so different to other pets I have or have had before and despite reading what feels like a million points of view, she STILL surprises me! I've probably asked dopey questions myself but obviously after just under a month, I won't be able to read her at all times....like thinking she might be grooming me because she was standing on my finger WHILE biting it - no - she was biting to assert her independance lol.

It's all one massive learning curve that I believe doesn't end until your pet passes away.

I'm afraid I'll always ask questions and seek reassurance because just like all my other babies, I love Cal too much not to check and double check that I'm doing the best by her.

As for those who give pets away....please....don't get me started. The only time they would leave me is if I'm dead in the ground.

On the parrot lifespan subject, my mum raised a good point. She's 68 this year and knows someone her age who bought a macaw. How heartbroken will this bird be when it's "should have known better" owner dies?

Wow, I didn't think when I wrote what I wrote that there were people that actually DID hit their dog with a stick!! You poor thing! That must have been so traumatising! You must have thanked your lucky starts when she didn't end up giving the bird away, and you got to inherit it and finally give it a proper loving home.
