Beneath the Cage Grate – February edition

IMG_20190203_140338In his latest Beneath the Cage Grate column, Morty tells of a letter he recently received from Rocco, another African Grey who is having a very challenging time with a demonic Alexa.

Rocco’s Alexa keeps getting him into trouble, and if he can’t find a way to stave off his Alexa’s foul language and bad shopping habits, he’s going to find himself in a real pickle with his parront.

Click here to read Morty’s comical – yet practical, response to Rocco!  And, find out what Morty asks of Rocco about eradicating the dreaded roomba from the house.

Beneath the Cage Grate: Vroom Vroom Roomba

img_20190104_115009Twas the day after Christmas and all through the house, not a creature was stirring because of that runaway Roomba Alexa gave mother for Christmas!  Honestly, I could just spit seeds!  Just when you thought it was safe to take a stroll around the apartment, that ditzy Alexa strikes again!

Morty’s challenges with Alexa continue.  Visit Morty’s Column to read his hilarious take on Alexa’s gift for mum.

Season’s Greetings from the Roost!

To all of us here at The Roost, we want to extend our best wishes to everybirIMG_20181223_120928die for a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019!

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!

Morty’s Birthday Bash Bungle

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?  IMG_20181103_111124

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!

Alexa is Missing & Morty’s in Jail

IMG_20181018_145440In 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!

Stay tuned!

Morty the Crank

Morty - October edition

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!
