Richard just had a bath

Parrot With Attitude! Richard The Bird has been back with us for a few days while his humans have been on holiday. He bit me. He nipped the cat. He aimed poop out of his cage onto the floor with unerring accuracy. He took a dump over Husb’s favourite dressing gown. He screamed blue murder when we had chips until I gave him one. He has been totally disruptive, anarchic and brimming over with parrotitude for 5 days. I still love him though.

Richard the bird

Richard is a Senegal parrot and a beloved family pet, about five years old and due to unfortunate circumstances through no fault of anyone, is now on his fourth and hopefully forever home. He takes his holidays with us. He returns home frisky and refreshed. Can’t say the same about us. Sparta Puss and Ming the Merciless are glad to see the back of him.

    I’ve been told that parrots often bond with only one person/owner. Looks like no one in your home fits the bill (pun) so far.

      Oh yes, he adores my husband. Husb is like some sort of parrot god. He sits on his shoulder and they watch the TV together. He doesn’t like me or the cats though 😕

    Oh no! Richard has returned! Fancy nipping both you and the cat. No wonder the cats will be glad to see him go back to his parents. What an affront to feline dignity.

    Some parrots live longer than some humans.
    Most parrots are more intelligent than most humans.
    There. I’ve said it.

    I hope it is his forever home. Love the images. Take care Cally.

    […] I drew with a Faber Castell Pitt drawing pen into a leather-bound, Steampunk style sketchbook. Richard The Bird, our family Senegal parrot, stayed a few days while his people were in holiday and went back last […]
