How do you keep the floor so CLEAN? I sweep and mop and vacuum and still it looks like parrots live in their room. LOL

Gypsie and tango love it!! They love sharing a cage too... If I ever separate them I would have a mutiny! I hand raised them from 2 weeks old together and they have bonded.

I have a female Golden Retriever named Gypsy. She has become a real connoisseur of dropped parrot food, a stray parrot toy outside the cages is even better! She tries to play with the parrots by rolling her balls under their cages or leaving her toys in the seed skirts!

That cover is a lot classier than the old cotton tablecloth I use for Ralph's cage cover.

haha, Chloe (my doggie) LOVEs it when she can steal a parrot toy! she has so many of her own though you'd think she had enough! she honestly gets a new toy every time i go to a pet shop... or near a pet shop... or any other shop lol! she has about 100 stuffed toys and balls but NO!! the parrot toys are better!
i used to use an old sheet but when i got the bigger cage it only covered like the top half so i decided to make one to fit.... and if i was gonna do all that work then it was gonna have to be pretty lol...
gypsie and tango tell me when its bed time by sitting on their sleep perch up the top of the cage and they try to pull the cover across through the bars. they got it about 30cms across last night before i took the hint and covered them for night night!

I use a fitted queen sheet that works great, but now I wish I could sew!

I use tablecloths, twin sheets and blanket throws for mine and deliberately leave the bottom half of the cage uncovered because I have a couple who've had night frights and I want them to be able to see if they have nightmares and wake up.
Freddie does not like being covered at all and I can imagine how he would react if I covered his entire cage (he's one of the night fright birds). Jade always whispers "kiss kiss" once her cover is on and won't be satisfied until I whisper it back to her.

I should make Happy a cage cover, now I'm jealous of yours. She came with two OOOGLY blankets that I've always used just because she's used to them, but neither is big enough for her cage...one is grey/black/white camoflauge (!) and the other is brown. I could really do without looking at them, and I own a sewing machine that I know how to use.
Thanks for the pic and idea!
