She called it a doodle... Ha HA!
I love Bounty paper towels. True to what they say, when it
comes to my birds, it stands up to a lot.
I use old bedsheets under my birds with a cheep plastic
tablecloth. I can take the bedsheet outside and shake off the
shells, the unattatched poo and (atleast right now) the half a
macaw's worth of feathers, then throw it in the washing machine
Under the African grey's cage I have the runner for carpet
youuse for the rolly computer chairs. It is big enough to cover
A LOT of space. That one, I use a shopvac on.
