Isabella Helps With Some Decorating

Isabella Helps With Some Decorating

July 2nd, 2011

My owner has been doing some home improvements this week so there has been a lot of interesting things lying around for me to play with. I must say from a parrots point of view she didn’t make the best choice. There was some nice gauzy curtain material that would have been perfect for shredding but she chose the boring hard wearing brown. I haven’t been able to put so much as a dent in it, it’s beakproof…. so far. I enjoy a challenge mainly because I am rarely defeated. They are proving very fun to swing off, another game my owner loves to get involved with; she is always right there when she sees me on the curtains.

I have been watching the way she strips off the wall paper, it looks like just the sort of thing that I love to do. I get some lovely shredding toys in my cage and I think she has just been letting me practice so that I can help out with the stripping. There is a patch right next to my stand that I thought I would start with. Such fun. Unfortunately I don’t think I’m doing it right because my owner keeps getting in right state. She moves me away and tries to stick the bits back down. Crazy behaviour. I don’t know what I’m doing wrong; I watched her do the kitchen and I’m just doing exactly what she did. I can only assume that she has such fun doing it that she wants to save it all for herself. That’s just selfish in my opinion.

Now all you parroty peeps out there should be starting a campaign to persuade your owners to put in some of the new vertical blinds that my owner has just had fitted. They are fabulous. I can climb up them, slide down them, nibble the bottom and the sides. They are just the best. Every house should have them. I keep looking in the toy magazine so that I can point them out to my owner and persuade her to have them fitted to the other window in the front room as well but I can’t seem to find them. It makes me think that there is another toy magazine that she is keeping from me. Really very unfair of her.

The weather has been getting much better recently. The dogs are a little put out as well because their beds have all been changed and on the sunny days they have had their beds moved outside into the sunshine and they are such stupid animals that they lie in the sun for ages and overheat. Do they have no common sense? I have been sitting on my windowsill but have been getting sprayed nice and regularly and still have my bowl of water to bathe in. The battle of wills over the harness is still going on but I honestly don’t see why I should have to be leashed like a dog to go out and my owner doesn’t seem to be backing down.

Don’t tell her but I am seriously considering it, I would love to be able to go outside. Maybe I’ll let her have her way next week, or maybe not, we shall see if the treats are forthcoming.
