Not to leave Kiwi unattended with food on the table:eek:! Now, Kiwi wasn't so much eating the sandwich as he was mauling/ripping it up, but still. He left the creature on the table, unattended with a sandwich, and then couldn't believe THIS happened:

Needless to say, Joe got to eat a half-mauled sandwich for lunch:D (As for the sandwich destroyer, he was given some blueberries and banana for lunch).

Joe went to get a drink in the kitchen (I was outside painting). Once caught, he was allowed to continue to maul the sandwich long enough for me to get in and grab the camera:D

ROTFL!!!!! I love the little bread clusters he made. I made popcorn a few weeks ago and found Venus in the bowl of popcorn. Husband sat the popcorn where she could get to it, let and watched her climb in the bowl and go to town. She looked like a kid in a ball pit.

The look on his face is priceless! That is a "I just won the lottery" look for sure.

Yeah, like it matters how many times you tell him...

Husband's listen. Really, they do.

They smile, and nod their heads, and appear to understand...

Oh, wait, were you still talking. I'm sorry. I zoned out there for a moment...

a very looooonng moment.

We're going to rename him Kiwi the Destroyer!

Him and your Zoe would certainly make a troublesome duo:eek::54: Someone should do a comic of the 'avian characters' on this forum lol!

I think all men have selective hearing:09:. Male birds too. I tell Kiwi not to touch whats not his as much as I tell Joe not to turn his back for a second when food is about:31:

WHAT? WHAT WAS THAT.... DID YOU SAY DINNER WAS READY?

Oh, I thought I heard something about food being about... :D

I figured that meant dinner was almost ready. :32:

As for an amazon, you're forgetting the basic parrot laws for humans:

Parrot Laws which Humans must obey!

If I like it, it’s mine.
If it’s in my mouth, it’s mine.
If I can take it from you, it’s mine.
If I had it a lit*tle while ago, it’s mine.
If it’s mine, it must never appear to be yours in any way.
If I’m chew*ing some*thing up, all the pieces are mine.
If it just looks like mine, it’s mine.
If I saw it first, it’s mine.
If it is shiny its mine and you must give it to me!
If you are eat*ing it, it’s also mine and you must share it!
If you are play*ing with some*thing and you put it down, it auto*mat*i*cally becomes mine.
If you think it may be yours, you are sadly mis*taken because it is actu*ally mine.
Every*thing that is not sup*posed to be mine, is MINE!
If it’s bro*ken, it’s yours.

HAHAHAHAH!!! I love it! Especially the look on Kiwi's face.

All of mine would do the exact same thing - no doubt in my mind. Heck, Sam would even get ticked off with me if I tried removing 'his' goodies. :54:

You just need to tell him to come to my house and leave his sandwich on the table (or anywhere else). By the time he gets back it will have been devoured. Not a crumb left behind. He would learn instantly, no further reminders needed.
