  1. After all these years...WOW! Joey never ceases to amaze us....Every time I do dishes, I have two tubs I have for the dishes because I caught Joey trying to drink soapy sink water and eat my sponges (3 LOL...BLEECHH!) Joey loves to keep my company and "tries to help" when I rinse the dishes by grabbing them and tossing them if he can. Well, today...Mr. Joe tried to step inside the rinse water to take a bath (first time in over 10 years since the only way he ever took a bath was in his cage water bowl)...so...I took an 9"x9" Tupperware dish and filled it half full of water and then began ri

  4. When I changed Dorian's cage I assembled it where he could see me and it. I did it across the room from him and then moved the cage closer until he got scared, and left it there or a couple of days for him to get used to. I gradually moved the new cage closer to him until I could put it like Jayd said, open door to open door. Let him see you put food and a favourite treat in the food dish, and then wait him out. It may take a while for him to explore the new cage because he's been cage bound. Just be patient. If he's preening in front of you Jayd is right, it means he's getting used

  5. NONONONONO....lol...He is actually relaxing around you and being to trust you.....do not push him....go slow and keep talking....as time goes on, move closer to his cage. Further on down the line, open his door and sit down next to him while you read out loud to him. When you go to clean his cage, tell him what you will be doing before and during the process. Jayd

  7. Hi....if it is possible put the cages face-to-face and put the open doors together....you can wait until he moves to the new cage or you or someone can take a perch and guide him to the new one. How about putting his favorite treat and nothing else in the new cage to entice him over...

Let me describe the tank first....it has a natural soil bottom, has bottom and mid-level live underwater plants, and it has floating fresh water moss and plants (I cannot remember the name of). It has one, 5" foam filter (Air pump), LED multi-colored plant lights, the water temp is 76 degrees, PH is 5.5, and I cannot remember the hardness but it is sooooffffftttt water. It is heavily planted with imported almond leaves, aged Chollo cactus chunks, and contains 30+ crystal red shrimp (1/4 - 1 1/4" lo

  12. They never cease to amaze. Never give up, never stop hoping is my motto with Timber. Maybe Joe will decide to become a daily bather, you just never know!

  13. I think I'm starting to see why your country has so little faith in a health system administered by the government. They really need to come up here and see how we do it. When I said we haven't the best record with our vets I meant annoyances like the leg/no leg thing I mentioned. I wish you could come to Canada and get care. Forget being a vet, just being a senior would get you better care. I'm so sorry you have to deal with all this stress on top of not being well. I'm seriously sending good thoughts your way. Love, Marguerite

  17. Just a Bird From time to time, people tell me, "Lighten up, it's just a bird," or, "That's a lot of money for just a bird." They don't understand the distance traveled, the time spent, or the costs involved for "just a bird." Some of my proudest moments have come about with "just a bird." Many hours have passed when my only company was "just a bird," but I did not once feel slighted. Some of my saddest moments have been brought about by "just a bird," and in those days of darkness, the gentle touch of "just a bird" gave me comfort and reason to overcome the day. If you, too, thin
