Vortex comes home Friday afternoon! **Dances with glee** She's being shipped tomorrow and will stay at the Airport overnight. The only complaint is that I couldn't get a ride, so I have to take transit there and back :D . It's maaaaybe an hour and a half ride home (Depends on how long I wait for the bus) but it's supposed to be a nice day. I hope I don't bake like I did when I picked up my first service dog dog some years back!

T-Minus 4 hours until Vortex arrives by plane. Fingers crossed the plane won't be late like when August (my last Pionus) arrived!

Vortex is settling in very well! She's eating and hangs upside down to drink from her water bowl. It's hilarious to watch :) . SHe's even starting to contact call my other birds and really watches when I take the dog out for her walk. I love my little brat :D.

I thought I'd just come in to see how you were going with your new ponious, I know you've done a lot of research, spent a lot of time looking around and waited a long time for her so I'm pleased to see she arrived in good condition. Hope all goes well

Thanks for checking up! It's been almost 2 weeks with her in the home and she's an absolute delight! She screams a hello when she sees the dog, and calls for kme when I leave the room. She's starting to associate her play cage with treats, so all is good. She's a sweet, sweet girl!

Oooooh boy..... I was transferring the birds to their play cages. Vortex went without a hitch. It's the only time she gets seed, so she was thrilled to be in her pay cage. Redshift and Chara went with minimal fanfare and Moon... well the little snot BIT me. And it was HARD. He doesn't like being picked up. Runs away every time. Sigh. Well, he's gotta get used to me picking him up or he's stuck inside his regular cage.

I'm looking for a decent sized cage that will hold three birds comfortably for play time. The one i got from Amazon is good, but I might look into something bigger. Anyone have suggestions? :D.

And bird pix for tax:

My hamster wheel of a brain is running to death. I'm obsessed with cats right now, in part because of mental illness (Yaaaaay.) and I have really bad impulse control. BUT! The birds are keeping me occupied , as is the dog. I can't get a cat anyways because I can't afford it, and I really really REALLY need to research how to keep the birds safe from curious paws. Bad enough Winter (dog) likes to harass the poor parrots on occasion. She's getting better, but some days the dog looks good as stir fry :p .

My question to you readers is how do you keep your parrots safe from curious cats? I was lucky when I first had cats... they ignored my birds and I could keep them in the living room while the birds had free range time in the bird room.

Can't wait for the morning. Birds need out of cage time as they never had any yesterday :)
