Sherry, I will have to say that my birds were here before my cats
were. They were kittens when I bought them, so they kinda were brought
up around the birds. They never tried to go after them at all. I have
a red factor male canary, that is beautiful. Now the cats will sit on
the sofa and watch him, but they never try to jump on the cage or
anything. Did you have your cat before the birds? IF thats the case,
maybe someone else with experience with that can help you. As I said,
my bird were here first, and the kittens grew up with them.
Wish I could be of more help.
