Living with parrots is a lot different then living with other species like dogs or cats. As all parronts know, our birdies have big personalities, and we parronts make a host of accommodations to ensure we keep our feathered companions happy, healthy – and occupied!
In this edition of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri explores some of the lifestyle changes – perhaps better stated, adaptations, she and Rick have made to keep Zack and Bubbles entertained and feeling as integral members of the flock.
Because, they’re worth it!!!
You know when they say ‘if it’s too good to be true’ it probably is… well it was very true for Morty’s Twitter friends, Beach Beaks recently!
After receiving a disturbing letter from King Olaf, our in-house intrepid investigator was on the case. What he discovered was very dark.
All birdies need to know what happened to King Olaf and his Beach Beaks flock so you too can be on the look out for sneaky tricks and evil deeds our humans sometimes try to pull on us!
Catch up with Morty in the latest edition of Beneath the Cage Grate to see what happened to poor King Olaf and Beach Beaks birdies – and learn the key signs of when you’re about to be duped by your humans.
Spa Schma, it’s a trap, it’s a trap I say!!!
Poor Morty, coupled with Lockdown madness and masked humans, his bot buddy Alexa has recently ratcheted up her silliness to a whole new level.
Seems Morty is now being told where to go, what to do and how to do it in Sign form…
If this craziness continues, Morty is going to make his own sign for Alexa, and you can bet it will not be parrot – or bot, friendly 🙂
Find out what Morty has been dealing with of late n the June edition of Beneath the Cage Grate.
It seems that this whole coronavirus Lockdown thing is really getting to Morty.
The bots are getting out of hand and mom is busy learning some strange new language that has Morty confounded and confused – and miffed.
The May issue of Beneath The Cage Grate will definitely help raise your spirit, and once again leave you wondering how Morty manages to stay sane (sort of) in his zany household.
In this month’s Beneath The Cage Grate edition, Morty crafts a mischievous response to South Carolina’ pals Zack and Bubbles in their plea for help dealing with their own out-of-control artificial intelligence issues.
We all know Morty’s recent ‘issues’ with Alexa, so it’s not hard to imagine some of the quirky tips he’s going to pass on to Zack and Bubbles.
Check out the March issue of Beneath The Cage Grate here.
The February 2020 edition of Beneath The Cage Grate is yet another laugh-out-loud hootenanny. In this issue, we find our favorite feathered sleuth on a mission to find out why his mum is raving about her new toaster – and a very expensive loaf of bread.
Drama is never far removed when Morty is zeroing in on something, and the case of his missing toast is yet another dramatic event
Catch up with Morty here to find how his latest adventure with the new toaster and pricey loaf of bread will become yet another Morty classic!
It’s amazing how birds, like people, can be introverts or extroverts, and every bird seems to be quite in tune with their personality and their interactions with fellow human and birdie housemates. In February’s issue of Feathered Frenzy, Sherri identifies some important issues regarding how matchmaking and our feathered companions can be an exercise in luck – and something often more challenging.
Sherri talks about how feisty Bubbles burst onto the scene in 2016 and took Zack and Chloe by storm (and shock).
This photo of Bubbles and Chloe, taken moments after they first met, tells the tale perfectly. Bubbles looks relieved to have a home and Chloe looks shocked by this blue interloper!
Catch up with Sherri’s full article on Matchmaking Mayhem for a good discussion on how birds understand human personality too, and how they use it to their advantage!
Dear Santa Claws… Claus…
Poor Santa, he has his hands full this year with the Christmas wishes from Alexa, Morty and Roomba as there appears to be some ‘issues’ ruffling a few wires and feathers between them!
The December edition of Beneath the Cage Grate finds Alexa, Morty and Roomba once again at odds, with their respective Letters to Santa reflecting quite the tryst – and the lengths each will go to spoil each other’s Christmas celebrations.
It’s also fair to say that Morty’s mom may want to read what her housemates have requested from Santa, before Christmas day arrives, to perhaps avoid the beginnings of a new, chaotic tradition!
What do you get when you put Alexa and Morty in the kitchen for Thanksgiving Dinner preparation? You get fire and one lousy, burnt drumstick that’s what!
Head on over to the November edition of Beneath the Cage Grate for some laughs, and a few timely tips on how NOT to cook your Thanksgiving turkey… or other fowl!
In the October (Halloween) edition of Beneath the Cage Grate, we find Morty, Alexa and Roomba donning costumes and setting out on their Trick or Treat adventure in their apartment building.
Now, you’d think these three would be welcomed at each door with a chuckle and a shower of candy, right? Alas, as you’d expect, things go a bit sideways, and we find all three little ghouls scooting home in haste, quick to escape some rather weird and spooky encounters.
Be prepared to be scared – silly – in Morty’s Halloween column! BOO
