Twas 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.
After coming down with a nasty sinus infection a week before Christmas, Sherri soon realizes how some of her negative behavior can quickly transfer over to the behavior and reactions of Bubbles and Zack.
Sherri observes that companion birds can help us become better people – if we acknowledge that their reactions can shine a light on problems that we might want to avoid. There’s so much to behavior on the part of humans and birds.
Visit our Feathered Frenzy page to find out how Sherri strives to balance a busy work schedule and implement relaxation techniques to help her get “centered” when the world around her gets out of control.
To all of us here at The Roost, we want to extend our best wishes to everybirdie for a very Merry Christmas and all the best for 2019!
May your birdie stockings be brimming with your favourite nom noms and your dreams filled with visions of new toys, tasty treats and many, and oodles of scritchies and hours of playtime with your parronts.
Have a wonderful Christmas everybirdie! Stay tuned for new articles and news from The Roost’s contributors in early January!
Today is the one-year anniversary of Chloe’s passing due to a cat attack. Mom, dad, Bubbles and Zack miss you so very much 😢. Watch over them and your countless Anipals who remember you today and miss you terribly. In our hearts forever, love you always Chloe ❤️💔😢
The World Wildlife Fund recently released its Living Planet Report 2018, and the news is dire for the world’s wildlife. The following are a few of the sobering statistics highlighted in the report:
“OUR LIVING PLANET, AT A GLANCE
60% – Populations of mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, and amphibians have, on average, declined by 60% between 1970 and 2014, the most recent year with available data.
50% – The Earth is estimated to have lost about half of its shallow water corals in the past 30 years.
20% – A fifth of the Amazon has disappeared in just 50 years.
$125 trillion – Globally, nature provides services worth around $125 trillion a year, while also helping ensure the supply of fresh air, clean water, food, energy, medicines, and much more.”
We are not only destroying the natural world, we are also putting ourselves in peril. There’s not much time for humans to stand up for nature and develop concrete, sustainable plans to reduce and turn around the damage already done to wildlife and the planet.
