Cats On Tuesday



I've been extremely busy lately and finding time for blogging has been hard to do. So this week I'm not going to write a long Anela story. I will say this: we've been offered (maybe!) two young African Grey Parrots, and I've said yes to them and had some concerns if Anela would bother them. She's such a well-behaved cat, but the distraction of having two talking, smart birds in our home might be a bit much for her. So since the owner hasn't called me back on the offer, I'm not going to get too worried about Anela freaking out. :Smile:

This video made me laugh. I hope it makes you laugh too.

That video was really cute !!
I am sure that Anela will get used to the perrots she will probably be afraid of them and if they can talk then it's even worse ! But with a little patience there will be no problem. I always remember the parrot of friends who imitated a cat so perfectly that the cat of the house was looking everywhere. He also called her each time she went by it was too funny. He could immitate the phone ringing (unfortunately) and treated you with all kind of very "nice" names !

That's a funny video - thanks for sharing!

As for the parrots, there are some cats in the Cat Blogosphere (I forget exactly who now) who live a bird, and they get along just fine. But I'm sure it depends on the birds and cats in question. Good luck, whatever happens!

That is a great video! I'm glad you found it. I don't know about birds. I am sort of a hands-off sort of person and birds require so much care. My daughter has a bird and loves it but she hardly goes anywhere. There is the illegal bird trade, too.

I'm going to look at the software made for that movie. Thank you!

That's a very funny video! Thanks for this good moment! I can anything say to you for the cohabitation with cat and bird! All depends of the animals... At home, we have a little rabbit and all gets well between them!

Great video, cute! Good luck with Anela and the perrots. I think it'll work out fine.
I'm new to COT, just joined. I have sleeping pics of my little kitten Maia up.

Funny video! We used to have birds long ago when the kids were home and also cats, but the cats stayed outside so there wasn't any interaction between the birds and the cats. I'm sure that if there had been, the birds would have been imitating the cats. ;-)

Good luck with the parrots. Anela will be very busy for awhile trying to figure out bird speak.

Such a cute video! Thanks for posting it!

I believe that African Greys are big parrots. I think that they might quickly put Miss Anela in her place if she gets too bold with them.

If you get them, please let us know what happens! I'm glad you didn't have any terrible natural disaster after Anela's strange behavior last week.

Hilarious video Kuanyin!

A friend of mine has several African Greys (among others), all rescue animals from bad homes. She also has cats, and they've never had any issues.

Parrots are very intelligent birds, and it's said that they typically have the intelligence of a 5-6 year old child. They pick up on things very quickly.

It's so funny to watch them. When I've picked my friend up to go out, one of the African Greys flaps his wing and says 'Good-bye, I'm waving, I'm waving!' It's so adorable. I think you're in for a treat of magic owning them :-)

But they're needy creatures, requiring daily human attention. They're not for the individual that isn't home much, the parrot will suffer greatly for it.

I could not imagine what mine would do with a parrot...but then again they have a chicken and rooster that is around them all the time so I guess you'll just have to teach them they can't have it for lunch!

I envy you the opportunity to acquire smart, talking parrots.
