We can't protect our pets from everything, even their own toys. We
just try to make their environment as safe as possible.
About 20 minutes ago, I had the scare of my life. I was checking my e-
mail, and I heard 'Bron chirping happily. For some reason, his
chirping changed and I had never heard him like that before. I glanced
over my shoulder and say him playing with his sisal rope toy. For some
reason, I got up to take a closer look. He had entagled himself in the
rope and was literally hanging himself. He kept trying to pull away
from the toy and was choking himself everytime he pulled. I was able
to CALMLY (which I'm still surprised at) try to pull the rope from away
from his neck. It was so entangled that I couldn't undo it. I was
afraid that he would die if I ran to go get scissors, so I held him up
for about 30 seconds, just so he could catch his breath, then ran like
he** to get the scissors. After he tried to bite my fingers off (he's
never bit me so hard,) I was able to cut the rope off of his neck.
I'm thanking God that I got out of work about 30 minutes early tonight,
because if I hadn't been home, it would've been a different story.
If we can't keep our pets safe in their cages *all* of the time, then
how are they going to be safe flying around our house???
Attached is the picture of my little fighting attack bird. I'm
speechless as to how happy I am that he is still with me.
