One Question:One Answer
You wanted to know why us 'keets are allowed to sit on the window sill and chew on the wall... well, it happens because we don't live in a cage. We have a room of our own where we're allowed to fly free all the time. There's no way to keep us from sitting on the window ledges or on the curtains, right next to the wall. Mom's goal is to keep us entertained with other things but sometimes we just have to try out something new; the wall was the most interesting thing that day! Ever since the catalog has been tacked over the tempting spot we've not bothered the walls. Anywhere! This week's distraction and entertainment was hay! It was bound to a huge grapevine wreath with lots of twine. Us 'kiesters get on there and pull and tug and shred and yank, tossing the pieces on the floor then flying down to it and playing with the hay there. Our flapping wings spread that stuff everywhere! What a grand mess we make! The great thing is, there are a number of finches that also share our room and they pick up most of what we drop and carry it to their cage where they work like crazy to arrange it in their nests. By spring their cage is going to have like a half a bale of hay in it! Yesterday mom made us festive red and green chew toys; popsicle sticks wrapped in either red or green paper then put on a wire left over from some other toy. We LOVE to nibble away at the paper, covering the ground (again) with holiday 'confetti'!! Busy, busy, busy; that's what we are. As long as we're kept busy we don't think much about bothering the wall. If we do, well, you know what mom will do; tack up another catalog! Thanks for coming by. Hope your account troubles are solved soon.
