Bird Vacation

by Sherri Moorer

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 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!

Halloween Hi-jinks

by Sherri Moorer

Bubbles 6-16-16[4895]

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.

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!
