Zack and Bubbles recently had a vacation. As mom and dad headed out for a long-awaited cruise, they stayed with my parents. It was as much a vacation for the birdies as it was for their parronts! Zack and Bubbles definitely had new experiences. Staying with their grandparronts, they didn’t have to get up before sunrise, and that was a treat! They also got caught up on mommy’s favorite soap opera and got to sit outside on the screen porch every day, and, were greeted by many new people when they came by to visit.
So, while mom and dad were enjoying the sun and sand in the Bahamas, Zack and Bubbles were enjoying their own adventure with their grandparronts!
Read Sherri’s full article on Feathered Frenzy to learn about how proper socialization and good birdie behaviour is key to a rewarding and relaxing vacation for both fids and parronts.
Morty’s day began as normal UNTIL, he found out his mum was going out for a birthday bash! Well, with mum gone, Morty thought hey, why not tell everyone it was his birthday too and hold a little birthday bash of his own. What could possibly go wrong, right?
Well, putting Alexa in charge of the birthday invitations and refreshments was quite likely Morty’s first mistake. Instead of Alexa inviting Morty’s AniPal friends from Twitter and Instagram, fly over to Beneath the Cage Grate to read about the ruckus that ensued with Alexa’s invitation announcements.
P.S. If you didn’t get an invitation for Morty’s party, you’ll soon discover why!
In November’s Beneath the Cage Grate issue, we will learn of some mysterious shenanigans that have led to Alexa’s disappearance and Morty being thrown in jail! Get ready for another wacky tale of mischief and mayhem from our resident sage, Morty. Will Morty escape the law? He’s in some serious trouble. Credible birdie intel sources tell The Roost that Morty may have challenged a foe much more cunning than he could ever have imagined!

We live in the woods, so we don’t get trick-or-treaters. Despite the spooky ‘vibe’ of Halloween, it turns out that people don’t really want to take an adventure down our driveway to find out what lay on the other ends of the trees. It’s just as well. Zack bit a princess twelve years ago when we were in a neighborhood. He had moral objections to trick-or-treating. The kids wanted to pet him, he thought they were mooches, and he didn’t understand why they screamed when they fed him their fingers because he should get a treat, too. It was a bad situation. Halloween has been less dramatic since we moved to family land in 2008.
Of course, that means we’ve had to find other ways to celebrate the holiday.
Find out how Zack, Bubbles and the family celebrate Halloween on Feathered Frenzy.
