Parrot Keeping

I don’t get it.

People want to get a single parrot because if they get two then the parrot won’t like them as much.

But then they don’t want the parrot to view them as a mate.

What did you expect? You got a pet in which most species mate for life. Their lives revolve around their mate, preening their mate, feeding their mate, having sex with their mate, raising babies with their mate, driving away competitors from their mate, and yes, spending their entire life with their mate.

You prime them for this situation by you or a housemate being the only ones available, and then freak out when they want to do this to you. It’s natural. It’s not bad. Your parrot isn’t misbehaving, it isn’t a bad bird just because you are keeping a wild animal in a captive situation where it just wants to do what every feather on its body is telling it to do. Stop treating it like such, stop punishing them for displaying mating behaviors.

Do what you signed up for by getting a single bird or work to get your bird a feathered mate. That doesn’t mean buying the first bird at the pet store you see and throwing them in a cage together and wondering why they don’t like each other. That means becoming a match maker and setting up play dates, or even consider rehoming your bird to someone who can.

Stop buying parrots and expecting these wild animals to be pets. They’re not. We’re on the way to domesticating birds like budgies, cockatiels, love birds, Indian ring necks…but we’re still so far from being able to keep them happy and healthily easily like we are with chickens and pigeons who thrive with us. Hell, starlings make better pets than parrots since at least they often choose to be with us.

And please, when you’re researching any animal don’t do a quick google search. Talk to as many people as possible, both new owners and experienced owners.

It was all fun and games until it wasn’t and suddenly what was suppose to be a quick sketch turned into an au. 

So i present to you Enchanted AU, where the gang lands on some weird fucked up disney planet where theres talking animals and everything is cute and cuddly and where they finally find the blue paladin. 

This all started from the fact that everytime i see the junk pile keith that pidge made i get reminded of the beginning of enchanted where giselle is singing true love’s kiss. 

Fandom spaces in tumblr have such a toxic habit of shaming and abusing people for the characters they like or the things they ship and I don’t understand how people find it so difficult to just stay out of each others business. I physically do not see what it is that makes a person think it’s okay to be outright abusive based on someones fictional relationship preferences. 

The world is a terrible place and there are horrible things going on every second of every day and then there are people who lurk on this website that spend their time slipping into peoples inboxes to tell them how wrong and vile they are for shipping a straight pairing over a same-sex one or vice versa like, why. How do you have the time and the energy to be so hateful. What do you gain. 

It is so so simple to just…not do that. It’s actually less effort. It takes valuable minutes out of your day to open someones blog, go into their ask box and construct a message about how much you, an insignificant anonymous user, dislike this thing that they like and how wrong they are to disagree with you. It is literally so much easier to just keep scrolling and let everyone do their own thing.  

Can we…not make fun of people’s art, especially if they’re children? And delete all “bad art blogs” that just repost (usually kid’s) OC’s without permission for the sole reason of making fun of them thanks

//as a fellow Jared Roleplayer I must- Jared Kleinman had a cheeky smirk on his face, slowly approaching the Mushie. He pulled her close and pressed his soft pink lips onto theirs, pulling away after a moment or two.

IDK why current Marvel is so insistent on making sure Tony has no friends ever? Historically he’s done best as a character when he’s been:

A) Having a great time with his long-time well-established friends
B) Getting support from those friends
C) Saving or being saved by those friends

Like yeah, sure, ok give me so delicious “life is pain but I must overcome” Tony Stark TM self-sacrificing behaviour, but please let him have FRIENDS while it happens? Stop vagueing about it, Marvel! Just let people say they like Tony! 

Preferably to his face.
