Have A Safe And Sane Halloween

Monitor your bird when it is out of its cage so it doesn't get close to a candle-lit pumpkin.

You've carved the pumpkin and stockpiled the candy, but before you don your scary mask and answer those knocks at the door, make sure birdie is safe this Halloween! Locate its cage away from the front door to prevent the sound of trick-or-treaters from frightening it. Monitor your bird when it is out of its cage so it doesn't get close to a candle-lit pumpkin or the candy bowl (chocolate can be toxic!). And, although your bird might help you win the costume contest, resist the urge to use birdie as part of your costume — it might become spooked.

So true! One year I put on "Groucho Glasses " & my bird bit me on the lip. Luckily not a bad bite but I learnd my lesson.
