If you want to get them to know each other just do it ALWAYS with the birds in the cage (mostly in hopes to prevent a curious cat harassing the birds at night).

I have no screens on my windows and when it was still hot I had my birds in their cage by the window with their door pointed towards me. They enjoyed themselves until a cat pawed curiously at the cage. Poor birds were scared to death. I yelled at the poor cat who was only being curious...poor birds and kitty. Though that same cat later wandered into our house and started acting like he owned the place smile


probably the bird flew to the cat's territory =\

We have 2 cats but we also have a bird room that we put a screen door on so the birds can fly free and the cats can't get in. I know not everyone has the luxury of having a bird room so if you do get a cat and have the birds just make sure to either shut the cat in a seperate room when the bird is out or only allow the bird freedom in one room with the door shut so that the cat does not have access. All it takes is one bite and your bird will be gone. Cat siliva can kill your bird as well as the bite.

Dogs have the same instincts to go after birds. When I was younger, my dog went after my cockatiel. We of course were watching the dog very closely and she never got close enough, but she sure wanted to go after the bird. She was an Irish Setter (a hunting dog).

Oh yeah, dogs go after birds for sure. It was so sad because my parents small toy dog would go after birds all the time. But whenever it saw a small baby bird fall out of a tree (or trying to fly) it would go after it. It may have just been playing but they have teeth and claws too. My poor dad had to clean up so many birds in our yard frown

Even more off topic, I like cats because they aren't as needy and clingy as a dog. They like to cuddle every once and a while. They'll be affectionate, but not all the time. Kind of like birds only birds don't constantly have a snarky attitude about them laugh
