    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
    with bleach.

    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.
