Living in the Tiki, Tiki, Tiki Room

I’m a big-time, and long-time animal lover and share my home with my sister and our adorable Shortcake, a spoiled Tonkonese with a bad temper and a taste for kipper. Because of Shortcake and her love of biting things, we can’t have birds here, and we wouldn’t want to if we could.

I know that sounds weird coming out of an animal lover like myself, but I have a good reason for this – I don’t really have to buy birds to enjoy having them around. We’ve got lovely bluejays, robins, barn swallows, sparrows and owls outside (owls who hoot all DAY, as a matter of fact ) – there are so many kinds of birds within 15 feet of our front door that in the morning it sounds like the Enchanted Tiki Room in our living room!

However, if you have an adorable, mouthy bird in our house you may want to check out the stylish cages over at YCA Cages. They’ve got a lot of styles for everything from breeding to playing, and they’re all beautiful ( especially the Victorians! ). I’d definately check it out if you’re in the market for a new cage. :)
