I Can’t Believe How Many Dangers Are in My Bird’s Cage!

From: Donna L.

 

Subject: Dangers found in toys and Oops, wrong Donna?

 

Hi Mitch,

 

I received your informative lesson about the dear little budgie?  (Sorry, tiny strokes-no memory)

 

I couldn’t stop reading.  So happy I found you! 

 

I started to dismantle my sweet little 21-year-old Meyer’s parrot’s toys to DIY new ones. 

 

I stuck my finger on something very very sharp! 

 

It was a little zip tie that was wrapped around a “bunch” of colored paper ribbons you see on so many toys.

The end of it had been cut, forming a very hard, very sharp pointed angle.

 

I also found a twisted metal wire, with uneven ends so one stuck out further than the other, making another sword.

and accessories daily for safety ~ Video

 

I was horrified and ripped apart all the toys she had (except Planet Pleasures and Bonka toys which are always great, utilizing absolutely safe parts.)

I had no idea the other toys were bombs waiting to go off. 

 

Fortunately, she only had 2 or 3, but that’s 3 too many. 

 

She and I were lucky. 

 

I have pictures of them and will send them to you and Amazon where I bought them.  

 

Again so happy to find you!

 

My best,

 

Donna

 

You’re preaching to the choir, Donna 🙂

 

Watch the video for a prime example of the point you are making.

 

We love pictures.

 

They are cute little balls of feathers, who, at-the-end-of-the-day are miniature velociraptors with evolutionary expectations spanning a hundred million years

 

This is an issue we can’t talk about enough – thank you

 

Stay safe

Best
