Percy Lounging Monday

Hi, I'm Percy. Just lounging around on this dreary Monday, so thought I'd volunteer to do today's post.  Jan is doing much better. Everything appears to be working again. She says she'll never again try to fly without wings, but we've heard that before and she eventually reneges..  Since she's feeling so much better, we woke her with a request for breakfast in bed this morning but she refused. 

We have a great video for you today.  This was beautifully made by Irena Schulz, the owner of Snowball the dancing cockatoo. We've posted a Snowball video two or three times in the past. This time we are posting "Be Our Voice." It is beautifully done - don't worry, no blood or gore or violence - and although this video only shows birds, humans are the voice against abuse of any living creature.

If the video doesn't play, click here.

If you would like to know more about the origin of the video, visit this post of the Bird Lovers Only Rescue blog.

Daily Kibble is having a contest this month for subscribers. (You can unsubscribe any time.) The winner will be chosen on January 31st. The prize is - you aren't going to believe this but it's a mommy bus. No, not a real bus. A mommy carrier pet carrier.

In case you've never heard of a mommy bus, did a review on it and posted the video to YouTube. We realize all of you reading this won't have a cat or dog weighing 15 pounds or less, so the video might not interest you. So we're just going to post a link to the short review.  It looks like a neat carrier. 

And a reminder that our neighbors Friends of Pike County Animals needs your daily vote to get an adoption and education center in their rural Georgia county. They are 153rd as we type this. They started at 155 and dropped back to 165 or 166th place and have worked their way back up again. They still have a long way to go but with your help, anything could happen. You can vote here.


  1. So glad to hear that Jan is doing better. The Momster wants to know if she could come help out with the five munchkins here today - it's a bit wild and crazy but we are sure she would have lots of fun.

  6. Glad to hear that Jan is feeling better!!

    Awww what a lovely clip!!! Birds are intelligent but very fragile and need a lot of tlc and care and attention!!! Lots of birds - especially parrots - suffer appalling psychological problems if not given enough mental stimulation and attention when kept as a pet. Poor birdies!!!

    Yay for Snowball - I love Snowball - what a star!!!!!!

    Off we go to vote!! Take care
