Budgies make great pets, but they don't play well with cats

I like budgies and think they make great pets and are pretty easy to look after. It's good to take their cage outside every so often too to make sure they get some good sunlight, or their health can suffer a bit. But it's also important to keep them away from cats. We thought that keeping the cage high was enough, but cats are quite agile. While the cat didn't actually get to out budgies, it did stress them quite badly and then they seemed to die from heart attacks the next day. Otherwise they were great pets and I highly recommend them.
