Yep, you're probably right kadie.........of course...in his little world...he's probably perfectly fine !!....

..............but to me.....there's something just not quite right with having a bird, made for flight, in a cage !

*le sigh*.....but I am sure he is content !

I could never keep a bird in a cage like this !

He seems happy...his present owners do let him out the cage but it's not prudent for us to do this.

He has a mirror and a couple of toys, the same old food and the water.............and though I try to not anthropomorphise the little fella I just can't see how he can be content in what appears to be a pityful existence !!

just to sit there on a perch...day in day out...for 13 years !!!...and yet...the fact that he is that vast age and chirps does seem to indicate that he's a happy bird !!........and has been wonderfully cared for !


LOL DAN...not superglue but double sided sticky tape !!

LOL ah, been watching Blue Pete again haven't you

LOL !!!.....the chirping is tranquil...but we will not get one Kadie......I don't believe in keeping birds in cages as pets and secondly...being ' pet-fre' does have it's advantages when it comes to holidays etc etc....

No worries Karen.

I even attempted to contact BK and pleaded with them...I said I would star in one of their ads for free if they re-introduced the Mushroom Double Swiss !!....I mentioned my withdrawal symptoms and depression.............whilst I brought a smile to the Customer Services lady who wrote back she did confirm that there was no plans to bring back that burger !

Your right about the holidays! It is so much easier to go when you do not have to worry about someone tending your two and four legged friends!
