Acquired: Worked with pet (didn’t own)
Posted Mar 05, 2015
I did not actually own these birds. Rather, my grandmother decided she couldn't turn down such cute little birdies, then promptly hurt herself and required surgery. Since she was on bed rest for the next long while, I helped take care of her and her many animals. Yes, that included her demon birds. Loud and irritating, they could be heard from the other side of the house. Not only that, but they had the habit of nipping anything that came near. Ironically, the big cat got it worse. Apparently the classic story of the cat chasing or eating the bird was wrong-rather, the birds were determined to eat them poor kitty one peck at a time! They also were very messing, and seemed to enjoy throwing their food outside of their cage. If you made the bad decision to let them out, they would fly to the nearest wood surface and promptly eat away at it. These things were terrible.
