Are you a bird lover?

Your Critter Sitters does not have a lot of bird clients, but I know that bird owners are passionate about their feathered friends and may invest a lot of money purchasing one.

My great, great Aunt Edith had several birds – parakeets, finches, and a cockatiel. I would visit her every Tuesday and Thursday after school and would enjoy seeing the birds, but WOW could they be noisy at times!

If you don’t already know or guess this, I grew up in a home with several cats and dogs. I also had, at different times, golden mice, hamsters, gerbils and guinea pigs.


When I was around 9 years old, one of my best friends had a parakeet. It was a gorgeous blue one, and I always wanted one just like it. However, my parents didn’t think it was wise considering the cats we had. They were afraid it would get loose and get eaten. They may have been right, but I don’t know. I always kept the rodents safe.

Have you ever owned a bird? What kind? Was it friendly? Did you have more than one? I would love to hear all about your bird in the comment section.
