Precious Pretty Pink Parakeets & Cats ...

Rosy Bourke Baby showing some blue on rump.
Normals have a blue rump. Rosy rumps can have wide variations.
 This little Rosy Bourke Parakeet is ready to leave the nest. In fact, she did, the very next day.

Patches Kitty is more interested in me then the bird.
 Even though Patches is a rescued cat who came to us as an older adult, she immediately learned to "ignore" the birds in spite of the fact that she survived on her own living in the woods and feeding herself, even through a snowy winter. Well-fed now, she has also learned to leave the wild birds alone. A stern, "No!" is all it took to convince her which side her bread is buttered on.

Our birds are part of the family.
