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!

We live in the woods, so we don’t get trick-or-treaters. Despite the spooky ‘vibe’ of Halloween, it turns out that people don’t really want to take an adventure down our driveway to find out what lay on the other ends of the trees. It’s just as well. Zack bit a princess twelve years ago when we were in a neighborhood. He had moral objections to trick-or-treating. The kids wanted to pet him, he thought they were mooches, and he didn’t understand why they screamed when they fed him their fingers because he should get a treat, too. It was a bad situation. Halloween has been less dramatic since we moved to family land in 2008.
Of course, that means we’ve had to find other ways to celebrate the holiday.
Find out how Zack, Bubbles and the family celebrate Halloween on Feathered Frenzy.
In the October edition, Morty has been called upon to provide advice to a distraught apartment dweller whose birdie companions are becoming too noisy for the neighbors. This parront is desperate for a soundproofing solution to her problem. Morty may have just the answer – but, there are a few bugs to be worked out first. As a side note, Morty’s dealing with his own issues regarding noise and remote controls (and Alexa) that are making him rather cranky.
Read Morty’s hilarious yet cranky response on Beneath the Cage Grate. Y’all might want to put your remote controls and appliances on lock down before reading, just in case!
