Post: My Captain Jack Sparrow (just Jack)
Posted by Carrie on 10/08/08
Jack is now 5 years old. My relationship began about 3
years ago. He lived at my place of employment. His work
owner left last March and Jack moved to my office. Jack
normally was quite friendly to the people comming into my
office, until one particular employee. He attacked her by
biting hard her finger when she touched my arm. Now Jack
is banished from work and lives in my home.
Jack is in his cage for at least 8 hours a day (with the
TV on). He gets a couple of hours out while I am getting
ready for work and he is out when I get home for about 3
to 5 hours after I am home.
I have offered him different treats, different toys, but
he seems to get tired of them quickly. He is almost
obsessive about sitting on me. Chewing my clothes,
nibbling (or maybe its grooming my skin). For the most
part, I don't mind, but he does get a bit overzealous.
Jack understands "no," "stop," and "get off." He has
never bitten me; but, he does protest loudly.
What can I do for him to entertain himself when he is out
of the cage besides me!
I also have 2 dogs and 4 cats. I watch all very closely
around Jack. But he is not afraid of any of them.
I would really like some advice. I want to do right by
