Thanks for your vote....My campaign blog of the day will be talking about "Other Pets in your Household besides your Cockatiel"...Dogs generally ignore birds that share their home,but if they try to chase them,clearly,they should be kept apart.Cats,on the other hand,are more likely to harm a pet bird,lurking in wait until the bird is out of the cage.Some are even bold enough to leap on top of the cockatiel's cage and attempt to reach it through the wires.This may not cause direct harm,but it will certainly upset your bird, which may injure itself in the cage.A tame bird is especially vulnerable to a cat, since its natural fear is lessened. If at all possible, therefore,keep your cockatiel in a room away from cats,and always check their whereabouts before letting the bird out of its cage.Never be tempted to leave the cockatiel unsupervised in the room even for a short time.If you already own a pet parrot of another species you will need to introduce the cockatiel very carefully, otherwise jealousy is inevitable.This can take various forms.The established bird may call loudly and persistently while you are tending to the cockatiel.If the cockatiel lands on the top of the parrots cage,the parrot is likely to bite its feet through the wires.It will also attempt to do this if the cages are placed close together side by side.In order to reduce the risk of conflict, spend longer periods of time with your original pet.By letting both birds out together signs of aggression are less likely to develop and in time the two members of the parrot family may develop a close bond, even to the point where they might roost alongside of each other even in a cage......Have a nice day...With birdie wing hugs....Sam :o)
