In her September Feathered Frenzy column, Sherri explores the situations, needs and conditions in which a companion animal becomes an ’emotional support animal’.
Human stress and grief are powerful emotions, and those of us who live with companion birds know that our birds react in a myriad of ways to our emotions.
Read Sherri’s full article to find out more about what constitutes an emotional support animal and how, despite often not formally acknowledged as such, our feathered companions provide us with the solace and comfort we so desperately need in times of grief and stress.

It’s hard to accept, but sometimes we’re not our bird’s favorite human. Often, with more than one person in a household, companion birds choose one person who they like best, bonding with that individual in a strong, special way.
This doesn’t mean the ‘second favorite’ person isn’t liked, it’s just that the bond isn’t as strong.
But, there are ways to ingratiate yourself and become their close-to-favorite person. Sherri’s August Feathered Frenzy article provides tips on how to build trust and show that you respect that while you may not be their favorite human, you do love them and want to part of their cherished flock.
