In the October edition, Morty has been called upon to provide advice to a distraught apartment dweller whose birdie companions are becoming too noisy for the neighbors. This parront is desperate for a soundproofing solution to her problem. Morty may have just the answer – but, there are a few bugs to be worked out first. As a side note, Morty’s dealing with his own issues regarding noise and remote controls (and Alexa) that are making him rather cranky.
Read Morty’s hilarious yet cranky response on Beneath the Cage Grate. Y’all might want to put your remote controls and appliances on lock down before reading, just in case!

I have poor spatial skills. I often joke that I would get lost leaving my driveway if I didn’t have to go to work five days a week. Most people think I’m exaggerating until they make the mistake of asking me for directions. GPS is a necessity of modern life for those of us who are spatially challenged. Unfortunately, it can’t help me with organizing cages, which is a challenge I face every time I get Zack and Bubbles new perches or toys, as I did recently.
Don’t get me wrong. Cages are much better than they were in the mid-1980’s when I got Samson, my first parakeet. They’re built efficiently with ease of cleaning, function, and bird comfort in mind. They’re also bigger, to provide more space for stretching out those wings to play, exercise, or laze around and beak grind while watching TV. You’d think the modern design would make finding places for those various perches and toys easier. Instead, it’s just enough rope to hang myself.
Read about Sherri’s spatial conundrums while attempting to outfitting Bubbles’ and Zack’s houses with new perches and toys on our Feathered Frenzy page.
Love has grey feathers, a mischievous glint in expressive eyes, and a beautiful heart and soul. Love has a name, Trixie. You left mom way too soon Trixie.
A few months ago, Trixie left her mom Tracy’s side to fly to the Rainbow Bridge, leaving mom and countless Anipals devastated and heartbroken. The photos and videos that follow are a tribute to Trixie, a beautiful girl who will forever hold a permanent place in her mom’s heart and soul. You are so dearly missed every day Trixie.
This is a tribute to you sweet Trixie Red Bum, a feathered star that shone bright and beautifully in our hearts for a while, but was called to the heavens to watch over mommy Tracy and your flock much too soon.
The Sweetest Face
Living up to her name, Trixie
Gone, but never forgotten
Forever and for always Trixie, mom loves you. You may be gone from this Earth, but you will never leave her heart and soul.
Love you forever Trixie
