Frederick in His Cup


Sometimes, Frederick just spends a cozy half hour sitting in his grit cup.

I've never owned a bird, so found myself googling grit and birds. However, I'm none the wiser, so I'll as you - why does Frederick have a cup of grit in his cage? And while I'm asking, I read that birds enjoy bathing - does Frederick take baths or showers?

Shelley, they need to eat a little bit of this crushed grit to maintain their calcium levels. And I think it help them to digest their food.

Frederick's baths are very entertaining. He disdains a bathing dish, but instead, about every five days, waits til I am running the vacuum, then bathes in his water dish by perching on its edge and throwing vast amount of water around up under his wings and everywhere else.

Frederick is clearly a very entertaining pet.

eavistWhat a character! I would love to know why the vacuum triggers his bathing instinct.

I can relate.

Our cat used to like sleeping in/on an empty Kleenex box. He would overflow its sides but eschewed his cushion lined basket every time.

I discovered your blog and just wanted to say hi from Italy. I'm slowly reading all your past entries and being inspired to finally put my home in order. Your writing is really adorable and really inspires my femininity. Thanks for all you do. Anto

Fredrick is very cute! I love birds and I want an African Grey. Right now (among other pets) I have a budgie named Kiki.

I can't IMAGINE that would be comfortable, but, I guess...whatever floats his boat...or rocks his grits cup...OR ruffles his feathers. :D
