Protect Your Pet Bird During A Tornado

Keep your pet bird safe during a tornado with these pet bird safety tips.

By Nikki Moustaki

1) Head to the basement with your pet bird and place his carrier in a safe area away from the walls and place a blanket over the carrier to protect it from falling debris. but remember to allow for air flow. 

2) If you don’t have a basement, go to a windowless room, such as a bathroom, and take your pet bird with you in his carrier. Get into the tub and cover yourself and your bird with heavy blankets or a mattress to protect you and your pet bird from falling debris.

3) If you live in a mobile home, leave immediately upon hearing of a tornado watch or warning (a warning means that danger is more imminent), and get to the closest tornado shelter in your area.

wouldn't it be better to remove all articals from the cage, and lay a very large cage on its side, and cover it with a blanket, away from windows? It makes more sense to me , than to place a bird in a small area (carriers) verses the strength of the birds cage, from falling debri.
