    I have had pets of all sorts over the years. At this time we have 4 dogs. Have had snakes, horses, a macaw and other tropical birds, fish, cats, and ferrets to name a few.

    Oh my Bruce! Your ears! Our tiny little girl raises the roof if we aren't out of bed by nine! And that is when her food isn't empty!

    I had cockatiels that were sweeties. Had a green cheek conure that was a biting little %&##@. I had a blue and gold that was the sweetest bird ever. He would come down off his cage at supper time, walk across the floor, climb his chair and very neatly eat supper with us. Unfortunately, he passed away during a procedure at the vets. Then I got a green wing macaw that was very cool, but very loud. We finally rehomed him as we just were not able to spend the time with him that he deserved. Also had a Timneh gray parrot that I named Atte after the goddess of mischief.

    haha.. yes, he can get loud, but usually he is really pretty good. He loves to sit on my shoulders or just hang out on the same chair where I am.

    Wow lots of birds! My mum used to keep a large cage of grass canaries, and she had finches and a love bird. I'm really allergic too cats but I still love them, dogs and several aquariums over the years, but dogs and fish are my thing, but I'm looking into rabbits for the kids, we had them when I was little. I've also had a slider turtle, a tortoise and a stray baby chicken.

    I've got a bunny. He thinks my orchids are salad, but he knows his boundaries now that I've doubled the fence around my inside grow area (I know, very attractive, ha!). He still sniffs around but can't get a nibble any more!
