Post: we've been asdopted by a bitey bird

    About two weeks ago a little love bird flew to our window
    sill and started calling. He? stayed for 40 minutes before
    we decided to keep him (we have a thirteen year old cat
    too). Since then we have gotten him a large cage and let
    him out a few times a day in the bedroom to fly about and
    hang out with us. He's social and comes down on the bed and
    lands on us, but won't let us touch him. He? is a green/
    violet and about 6 inches tall and we have no idea how old
    he? is, named him Rudy. Super sweet, he gets on a stick
    with the "up up" command but won't let us pet him and loves
    to chew on absolutely everything, including us. He doesn't
    break the skin or leave a mark, I don't think he's angry
    when he does it- but he's always doing it. We are trying to
    train him with a water spritzer. We have just covered his
    cage for the first time at night so he won't wake us up in
    the early early morning. Any advice about his biteyness,
    how to get to the petting stage or other issues of being
    adopted by a lovebird? Thanks, Zoe and Chris
