infinitydreamer: If you are so insecure that you can't handle an animal speaking a common name because it makes your relationship feel less valid you should probably just go die.
Lando Lincoln: That PBS show about parrots and all of the owners that abandon them was pretty depressing.Don't get a parrot, people. Just don't.
subsetzero: I've had a Congo African Grey for sixteen years so I'm getting a kick out of these replies. Our Gandalf says dozens of phrases and uses them in contextually correct situations. She laughs, chuckles, snorts, giggles, farts, kisses, barks, meows, clucks like a chicken and beeps like the microwave. She says "bye bye go to work" when I leave in the morning and says "Hi Mom" to my wife but never to me. Without a doubt she'll out live me. For that reason alone we never ever taught her stuff that would make her un-adoptable.That British slag should rot in hell for what she did to that bird.
Satanic_Hamster: For the life of me, I don't understand why you would do that to an animal.
Lt. Cheese Weasel: doglover: Parrots are great. Not as pets, per se, but they're almost as smart as crows and they can speak mimic any human language. Sorry, but that had to be corrected.
Jument: Fish are meant to swim, cats are meant to hunt, etc.
brimed03: Ihaveanevilparrot: The bird's vet has prescribed him 0.1ml of Amitriptyline a day - the same form of prozac which is also given to humans.Are they using prozac as a general term for antidepressant? I've never heard it used that way, at least not in the U.S., and Prozac is not the same drug as Amitriptyline.Someone needs to create a chart that shows how all anti-depression pills are "Prozac" to the media. Like all handguns are Glocks and all rifles are AK-47s.
