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?”
Find out what Doctors Zack and Bubbles prescribe for their most important patient, mom, on the Feathered Frenzy page.
Greetings to all my favorite parrot friends! Alexa is in a mood after she rolled under the couch. She blames me for her clumsiness! Good help is hard to find these days!
Recently, I received an interesting letter from a parrot owner.
I live in a three bedroom home and have ten parrots. I work 12 hour shifts and when I get home I am too tired to clean. It seems like every bird has the habit of throwing their fruit, veggies, seed, and pellets on the floor! When I go into their room at night, it is a filthy mess. I cant even get near their cages! Is there anything on the market that could help me? PLEASE DON’T TELL ME TO GET A VACUUM CLEANER! I have three. I am looking for a piece of industrial equipment. Price is not a problem.

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 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.
