Dear Parrots,

STOP YOU ARE DRIVING ME CRAZY!

Sophia: That was my breakfast. Don't eat it! Don't take my pen. Stop eating my buttons. Don't dangle from my hair! No, you can't chew my glasses! Get off of my head! Don't nip my toes! They aren't toys! Don't dangle from the wires! You aren't Tarzan!

You may play with: the keys, any one of your millions of toys; the cap to my water; my hair clip.

You may not play with: the scissors; my mp3 player; my phone cord; the phone; the mouse; the keyboard; the glue; the buttons on my shirt; the phone; my bra strap; the camara; my sheet music; my earings; my necklace; the phone.

Athena: STOP EATING EVERYTHING ON MY DESK! I NEED SOME OF THOSE THINGS! Don't bulldoze into my head when flying! My head is not a landing strip! Don't bite me when I make you move! Stop chewing everything in site! Stop rolling upside down as an excuse to bite! Don't say "Up! Up! Up!" incessantly when I put you in your cage!

You may play with: any one of the millions of toys we've gotten you; the keys; the cap to the water bottle.

You may not play with: the stapler; my expensive resume-paper; the BAR LOAN CHECK; the scissors; my How to Draw Fairies book; the resume and coverpage I just printed; my Bar study guides; sketching pencils.

Spinksy: DON'T EAT MY EGG IT WAS MY BREAKFAST! YOU HAVE FOUR DIFFERENT OPTIONS OF KITTY FOOD BECAUSE YOU ARE SO PICKY! NOW GO EAT ONE OF THEM!

Thank you for your cooperation on this matter.

The Management (aka Mom)

(For the record, Athena is a 1 year old African Grey, Sophia is a 2 year old Cockatoo, and Spinksy is a 3 year old itty-bitty cat)

Athena and Sophia are so funny! Sophia keeps adopting little baby traits of Athena's, and Athena tries to copy Sophie's big girl traits. Usually pooping isn't a big deal over here with Sophie. Go on the basket and poop. She's potty trained. We don't think too much about it. Well. Now she's doing it Athena style -- wiggle her butt backwards, squat, and go. Grr! We got extra-super treats for proper potty behavior and are going all out when either of them does it in the right spot. LOL.

Sophie's also begun crying Athie-style. Which is actually nicer because it's quieter *G*

On the other hand, Sophie gets in trouble for climbing off of her play gym. Athena was pretty good for a while, but now she's determined the play gym is optional as well. Only, because she had wings, she'd fly off -- and onto everything. We clipped her wings and have a new Time Out bin -- a large clear bin that Athie slept in when she was a baby. When they climb down without permission it's into the bin they go! Athena sine wings is a much humbler CAG!

Oh, and our house is a much nicer house with only one kitty inside (and the rest on the enclosed patio). They seem to like it better out there, too. Spinks keeps whining to join them!
