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.

Morty is challenged to adequately respond to a letter from a stressed-out parront who’s trying desperately to keep up with the mess caused by their determined food-flinging flock!
Catch up with Morty in our August issue coming out next weekend, and get ready for more wisecracks and witty retorts from everybirdie’s favorite birdie columnist, Morty!
Just over a year ago we lost two beautiful souls, Alice (Warden) and her beautiful Amazon Penne. The Roost thanks our close online flock, and especially Coco the Parrot, for forwarding so many wonderful pics to share with everyone in honour and remembrance of a lady and her birdie, both of whom brought much love, joy, silliness, and laughter to many, many lives.
Alice and Penne, you are missed so very much. Your candle will continue to burn bright in all of us forever and for always.
A rose, from Coco, to remember Alice.
If it weren’t for Alice and Penne, many of us (affectionately known as ‘Anipals’) would likely have never connected, so thank you Alice and Penne for bringing us all under your wing and into your loving embrace.
Here’s to you Penne and Warden, love you, always.
The silly and saucy side of Alice and Penne!
Penne, you are so loved, and so missed by your best friend Coco.

Morty solicits Alexa’s help to purchase what he thought would be a lovely playpen he could enjoy on his back deck. Well, let’s just say that what the UPS man delivered wasn’t what Morty had ordered… or planned.

Goodness knows what Morty is up to this time. Stay tuned for our mid-July issue of The Roost to find out!
For this inaugural issue, Morty is letting his mom, Diana, write the first his column’s maiden article – mainly because he is otherwise engaged in building a relationship with a rather strange looking coffee table top companion named Alexa. Alexa talks, but she doesn’t appear to have legs or wings so she can’t be bird… can she? Morty is perplexed.
