Design Problems

by Sherri Moorer

Zack

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.

The Doctors Are In

by Sherri Moorer

The welcome home screams invited me into the offices of Doctors Zack and Bubbles, ready to begin their official duties as listeners and comforters of human sorrows after a hard day at work.

“What am I going to do?” I asked, as I plopped in my recliner. “The phones won’t stop ringing. The emails are constant. The mail weeps with the death of a forest every day. The computers crash, the copiers and scanners jam, and the people! It’s questions, complaints, problems, and misdirected calls all day long. How can I do this until retirement?”

Remembering Chloe

Chloe 4-1-17

Chloe Moorer, of Columbia, SC, passed away after an accident on December 2, 2017. Born in 2003 in Florida, she was moved to Parrot Mountain and Gardens in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, where she was lovingly adopted on May 20, 2010 and moved to Columbia, SC, with her new flock.

Chloe was a sweetheart and a beauty queen. She loved hanging out with mommy, sitting on the porch, playing on her play gym, holidays, celebrations, visiting family and friends, interacting with her friends on Twitter and at the ConureCorner website and blog, and sticking her nose into whatever her flock was doing. Chloe was an avid fan of the University of South Carolina, the University of Tennessee, Bruce Lee, Superman, and most of all, Captain America. She enjoyed giving kisses to her mommy and grand-mommy, drinking daddy’s juice, eating good food, a rousing mystery, listening to mommy’s stories and ideas for novels, and looking her best. Chloe starred in several Anipal Land stories on the ConureCorner blog, alongside her Twitter pals, as a Kung-fu master who helped to save the day.

Chloe&Mommy

Chloe is survived by her parronts, Rick and Sherri Moorer; her brother, Zacchaeus (Zack, a sun conure on Twitter as @wazzupzack); and her sister, Bubbles (a blue Moncks Parakeet, on Twitter as @CaptainBubbs). She was pre-deceased by a brother, Oliver (Ollie, a green budgie who passed of cancer in 2014).

Chloe was a kind and generous bird, and a great listener. She is greatly loved and missed.

Bird Games

Sherri

In the wild, birds instinctively play, finding fun and amusement in their natural environment.  Our companion feathered friends don’t have to seek out wild fun since we humans provide for all their needs.

So, what do birdies do with their pent up energy?  Read Sherri’s full article here to learn how Zack and Bubbles devise fun games to keep themselves amused and, most importantly, keep their parronts on their toes!
