Have a wonderful Christmas everybirdie! Stay tuned for new articles and news from The Roost’s contributors in early January!

Remembering Chloe

Today is the one-year anniversary of Chloe’s passing due to a cat attack. Mom, dad, Bubbles and Zack miss you so very much 😢. Watch over them and your countless Anipals who remember you today and miss you terribly. In our hearts forever, love you always Chloe ❤️💔😢

Birds can feel the magic of the holiday season too!

It starts on November 1, inspiring over seven weeks of bright eyes, excitement, and good behavior. It is the ringtone that only mommy can hear:  “Hello? Hi, Santa!”  Bubbles and Zack begin their posturing and charm as they know the holidays are on the horizon and they’re on Santa’s radar for good behavior!  The holidays are a fun time, and we can share that fun with our avian companions. We just have to be mindful of exercising appropriate safety precautions around the home and with other people.

Read Sherri’s inspiring and fun Feathered Frenzy article to find out more about fun ways to get your birdies excited for the upcoming holidays and safe ways to include them in the festivities.

Beneath the Cage Grate: Quelling Sid’s Dark Thoughts

While softening, a little, towards Alexa, Morty is now dealing with a distraught Sid TheIMG_20181201_130116 Parrot.  Sid is struggling to find a way to get all of his dad’s attention while

desperately trying to put distance between his dad and a meddling woman friend.  Despite pouring on the charm to win her over, Sid writes to Morty seeking help to dissuade his dark thoughts about ‘getting rid’ of this woman.

Instead of resorting to actions that would lead to notoriety – and possibly publishing rights, Morty advises Sid to use some tried and true parrot moves for messing with humans!  Read Morty’s sage advice to Sid on Beneath the Cage Grate BUT, make sure to read the article away from the prying eyes of your parronts – just in case you need to invoke some of these strategies in your future!
