Parakeets - cute but don't cuddle well

By

United States

Posted Mar 07, 2015

I had two parakeets as a teenager. I remember being very disappointed that they couldn't cuddle me. I held them a lot and they were used to it, but the lack of cuddling was a serious downside to me.

I lined their cage with newspaper which helped with cage clean-up and every now and then I put them both in a shoebox and scrubbed the elmer's glue, I mean poop, off the cage.

They're adorable. They do not cuddle.
