Post: Dirty Birdie
Posted by Macaw Mom on 1/12/08
I'm looking for a bit of advice. I have a "second-hand"
B&G, whom I adopted (for cash) from a "questionable"
source. Nonetheless, I love her and with affection and
attention she's turning into a wonderful companion. I do,
however, have one issue with her...she HATES to bathe. She
screams and runs away when I try to sprintz her with a
spray bottle, and I'm very careful to be gentle with it.
She refuses to shower with me or without me, she simply
gets down from wherever I place her and waits on the floor
until the door opens, then runs like crazy. She is very
sensitive and I don't want to traumatize her (I suspect
she's been through enough already), but, frankly, she
SMELLS! She is in serious need of bathing, but I'm sort of
at a loss as to where to go from here. My vet suggested I
just keep putting her back in the shower until she stays
there. That bombed bigger than Britney Spear in family
court. I'm no expert, but there's GOT to be a better way.
Any suggestions? Thanks a million for any help.
