Fido and Polly?

August 4, 2011 § Leave a comment

Apologies for the late post; I was too busy procrastinating. Today’s post is on an interesting, rather controversal topic in the birdy world – can birds and other pets mingle? The common sense answer, of course, is no.

Parrots are prey and cats and dogs are predators; add in the fact that dogs and cats’ saliva can kill parrots and you’ve got a disaster waiting to happen. Unfortunately, we can’t seem to resist introducing Polly to Fido or Mittens, and they can get along surprisingly well. However, there is still the risk that Fido/Mittens might decide Polly looks mighty tasty – accidents happen, and they seem to happen with alarming frequency whenever animals are involved.

The family dog and my birds are not going to be introduced to each other. It might work sometimes, but I’ll remember Murphy’s law: Anything that can go wrong will go wrong.
