We have the same cockateil as this!! He loves to be sprayed and hangs upside down with his wings spread! I'd really like to know what kind of bath your birdie uses, I may be able to coax ours into a different way of bathing but he's 31 years old now so he may not want to change!

Amelia - I have always used a spray bottle and he does the rest - the leaning into to, the hanging upside down, the open wings, etc. I usually don't soak him this much, but he is moulting and needs help unwrapping all those new fancy feathers that are coming in. But hey, he wasn't complaining, so I just went with it. He's back to his old fluffy slef now, and now happily preening on my knee as I write. :)

lol! I love that bird! Please post more pictures!

Kate - thank you! Pookie says thank you as well!

See, I always figured that bird pictures fell into the same category as cat pictures - only adorable to the people who took them and boring detritus to everyone else online.

But if you insist..!

Feel free to post Pookie pics. I can't have a bird because of my cats, so I'll enjoy yours vicariously. :-))

Yes, please, more birdie beefcake! I thought this one was so cute that I saved it (please do assure Pookie that I'm not stalking him, I'm just an avian fan).

Not only have I always enjoyed eating bacon, but we are in the process of buying a home on Bacon St. so, needless to say, I'm looking forward to the bacon mittens.

That bird makes me laugh. Sometimes because I think that the holes on his beak are really his eyes and then he looks even more like a cartoon character
