I do not think you can relate fids to other species! I also
don't think you can make such a blanket statement about
animals in general.
When I lived in Texas I had two Schipperkes, a cat and two
ferrets. They all lived in harmony - how, because I trained
them to live in harmony. The ferret slept with the cat and the
cat with the dogs, etc....
When I lived in California I had two cats, two fids, and 2
fish, the Cats NEVER bothered the fids because I trained them
to be family. My Conure often would hang out on the back of
my cat w/o my cat ever trying to hurt my conure.
I do agree with one thing, birds are different when mixing
species; however, if you've never owned a bird or have never
owned more than one species then that is why this board is
here - for all to ask questions!
