It’s A Relationship!

Considering adopting  a parrot- Caring for any pet is a responsibility, you build a relationship on trust, commitment and love.  Parrots can be wonderful companions, they are intelligent and very devoted to their owner.  Highly trainable and will show you unconditional love.  Of course this comes with time and dedication as any animal, we need to learn about them as they will learn about us.  As with many animals they have feelings and they learn to understand what we teach them.  If mistreated they will react just like any other animal, but show them love and lavish their cages with toys and comfort and you will see they will know just how much you love them.  I rescued my Conure 10 years ago and didn’t have a clue just how awesome he would be!

Before you adopt look into what species is best for you and read about them, it saddens me when I visit a pet store and on the outside of the cage is a tag that says “I Bite” not for sale!  So sad that he may spend his years in a cage because he was mistreated or neglected and he just doesn’t know how to be a great bird  with a great owner.  There are several great rescue organizations with beautiful birds just waiting for a great home! Through my personal experience I have noted several great teaching techniques and ideas for first time parrot owners.  Check it out on our website.

New Product Coming Soon!

I am very excited to be launching a new product to the pet industry!  My patent pending product will enhance your bird’s playtime inside  the cage.  When I rescued my Jenday Conure it took several years and dedication to get to know all about him.  While decorating his cage, I came across an obstacle and wanted to find something to resolve the issue. I began to sketch my product and from there searched high and low to find it in the stores or on line.  With no success, I decided to create the product for the pet industry.  So stay tuned, once it it ready for the market you will see it here first!

Love My Cage!

Meet Prince!

My first photo shoot!

Welcome to “lovemycage.com”.  To all bird owners, I know that whatever the species they bring us joy and laughter every day.  A happy bird is a healthy bird,  just like a child, what you put into their development really enhances their life and ours.  The photo to the left was his photo shoot at “Petco”, he is a natural!

I rescued my Jenday Conure back in 2007, he was tossed away in my office mail slot.  True story, we went to open the lock box for our daily pick up of rent checks and there he was mixed in with all the envelopes.  My staff and I didn’t know what to do.  So we ran to the local Walmart bought a cage and some food.  When we took him out of the box, he was a beautiful bird a little scared and very hungry. That evening I took him to a Petco Store to find out what type of parrot he was and what were his needs.  They immediately told me his species and that he appeared to be in good health.  He immediately took to me, so we walked around the store, the salesperson helped me purchase a larger cage for him and the proper food.  We spent the next week getting to know each other, mind you I only had a parakeet when I was a kid, so I was unfamiliar with the needs of a Conure.

I took him to the veterinarian the next week, doctor said he was around 3 to 4 years old and seemed to be in good health.  He took blood work and I asked him to do his DNA so I would know his gender.  A couple of weeks later his birth certificate arrived…  “It’s a boy”.

I had to learn a lot, I bought books on how to teach him to talk and develop a relationship with my little guy.  Oh yea, had to pick a name for him.  Since he was found at my office, I asked everyone what should we name him?  Finally, I came up with “Prince”.
