Beneath the Cage Grate – February edition — THE ROOST

In his latest Beneath the Cage Grate column, Morty tells of a letter he recently received from Rocco, another African Grey who is having a very challenging time with a demonic Alexa. Rocco’s Alexa keeps getting him into trouble, and if he can’t find a way to stave off his Alexa’s foul language and bad […]

Santa Birdie

ephoto_1545105559511I’ve been preparing my list for Christmas for mom’s review, ordering and delivery next Tuesday morning.  I realize it’s hard to believe, but I HAVE been a good birdie all year (well, there was that one incident in Penne’s Tree a while back when my buddy Oscar (a cockatoo) and I got into the moonshine, caused a wee bit of a chaos, fell out of the tree and into the bushes beneath, emerging the next morning with twigs and pine needles stuck to our birdie butts.  Thankfully, what happens in Penne’s Tree, stays in Penne’s Tree, phew).

But I digress.  I repeat, I have been a GOOD BIRDIE this year and I deserve everything on my list (and much, much more, but I won’t push it):

  1. Almonds – the biggest bag possible of course
  2. New foot toys – so I can listen to mom moan and groan as she picks them up when I deliberately toss them
  3. My own smartphone – because mom is becoming tiresome, with her bad typing and rather boring posts of trees, snow and stupid turkeys… yawn..
  4. A new sister – Abby is beautiful, but good grief she’s boring and has absolutely no sense of humour
  5. Bells and whistles – because I’ve heard that other birdies have cages decked out with all the bells and whistles.  I don’t know what they are, but I know I want them!

Uh oh, mom’s coming, I’ll be adding to the blog about my (bottomless) Christmas list and the weird build-up to Christmas in our house (i.e., decorations, food, visitors and silly songs…).

Until next time everybirdie, be careful to whom you divulge your Christmas list – Santa’s’ watching!

P.S.  I’m looking for further suggestions for my Christmas list, please pass along your comment to this post! 

Just “kidding” around in Idaho

A neighborhood in Boise, ID became the scene of an unexpected goat takeover this week, as “about 100” goats descended on the lawns and gardens of a residential area — to the surprise of homeowners waking up to discover their new neighbors snacking on their front yards. “They are going house to house eating everything…

Moo-ving Nativity

(PHILADELPHIA) — A cow in Philadelphia apparently wanted to be away from the manger, as it escaped twice Thursday morning from a church’s live nativity scene. Stormy, a 7-year-old brown and white Hereford, was back munching hay at Old First Reformed Church of Christ by 7:15 a.m. after two sets of adventures on snowy downtown…
