My little potato injured her two days ago because of me 😔 Basically, to put my food bowls inside the cage, I need to slide it in from the outside. I never thought that one day I can accidentally get my birds toe stuck between the food bowl and medal part. Blossom was really eager for breakfast and I was having a busy morning. I quickly put the bowl in and she was screaming ☹️ It took me a solid second to realize her toe got squished. I felt so bad 😪 although she seemed to be in pain for a couple of minutes, she bounced back to her regular self. I kept my eyes on her for 48 hours. She has no issues putting pressure on her toe to this date. I still plan on keeping and eye on her. We all know how well birds hide their pain. The more I think about it, the more it annoys me. This never happened to me and now I'm paranoid it will happen again. I now trick Blossom into thinking her food bowl is placed in another area, then quickly slide her actual bowl in. She likes sitting on the medal area and now i'm freaked out she will injure herself again like couple days ago. 😕 We tend to always share the good side of pet keeping but, maybe because of how judgmental the pet community is, we often shy away from telling our mistakes. Its really important that we share information that can help others not do the same thing. Anyone who has food bowls that need to be places from the outside, make sure you don't have your birds tiny toes be in the way.
Blossom had breakfast is now napping on my shoulder ☺️

QOTD ❓ Do you like when current authors write introductions to classic novels?
Putting a modern writer's name on the front is a great way to bring old books to new readers but I now read them after the book as I often find they contain mild spoilers.
Rosemary's Baby by Ira Levin
This wasn't the story I was expecting at all! I haven't seen the movie and from what I knew about the book, I thought it had a plot similar to The Omen 😈 - a twisted child terrorising his parents. Wrong!
Despite warnings about the dubious history of their new home, Rosemary and her husband fall in love with the place but before long we discover that not everything is what it seems. 😲 In fact nothing is what it seems, or is it?
This is an absolute mind bender of a book and the real wonder is how the author creates an incredible amount of tension and fear 🙀 by subtly casting doubt upon character motivations, particularly the friendly neighbours - could someone be so kind that their intentions must be evil? It's a short book so I can't say too much but by the end I found myself in such a web of uncertainly that I actually had no idea which events were real and which were hallucinations or paranoia 🤔 - the exact feelings of the main character Rosemary. it's actually genius.
One final point - Levin's writing style is way ahead of it's time. 🕝 This book was written in 1967 yet reads like a modern day thriller. I highly recommend! Now I need to check out the movie 🎬 and the recent TV series 📺 referenced in my photo.
Not mine, but I believe it is important. Happened across it on Facebook.
When you start owning birds you have very little knowledge. There is only so much you can get from online. Everyone is in the same boat there. However, as you have them longer you learn more. Everyone learns differently. Some from social media, some from friends, some from the birds themselves and some from articles. The important thing is to never stop learning. Don’t give up just because you believe you know a lot. New research is done everyday about parrots! All animals to be honest. No matter if you’ve owned parrots for 2 days or 50 years, never stop learning. Keep educating yourself so you can do what is right for your feathered friends. Question what others have told you, question what you know yourself. It’s amazing how little we really know about these magnificent creatures.
There is so much truth behind the saying “You learn something new everyday”. If anyone knows who wrote this so I can properly tag them and thank them for the wording that would be awesome. If they wish this was removed from my page I will do exactly that ❤️ #parrots#parrotsofinstagram#parrotsoftheworld#avian#bird#birds#birdcare#birdsofinstagram#tumblr#pets#petsofinstagram#animalcare#petcare
