DO NOT BUY A BIRD

…IF YOU WANT A LARGE PARROT THAT CAN TALK AND IS QUIET.

Friendly reminder that birds are LOUD, they are MESSY, and they are NOT ALL GUARANTEED TO TALK. Not to mention that THEY WILL BITE YOU.

I was at the pet store today looking at bird toys, and a lady who was looking at buying a GCC stopped to ask me about what birds I own and where I got them. We talked for a bit, and she told me that she wanted a bird that would be able to talk. She mentioned that she liked the GCC because he was cute and playful (she’s not wrong). Having owned a sun conure, I quickly pointed out to her that conures are very loud. She said she didn’t want one that would make a lot of noise. I decided to refer her to a local rescue. I’m hoping that visiting the rescue either educates her or deters her from buying a parrot. I think she’ll quickly realize that there’s no such thing as a quiet bird…or a clean bird…or a bird that is guaranteed to talk.

Charlie is a 3 ounce fluff ball that, when he wants to be loud, can be heard from outside my house. Think about that before you buy a parrot. Think about that while you can still hear yourself think.

That moment in which Flash tries to “sneak” a drink of water after I’d gone to dry my face off, and subsequently totally miscalculates both the length of his neck and grippiness of his feet. 🤣🤣🤣

Flash’s latest love interest: the sexy-as-all-get-out toilet paper roll. He just sat there talking to himself inside of the roll and making flirty sounds this morning and it was about THE funniest thing ever. I love my little weirdo.
