Okay so I went to go over to the cage to say hi to all the little buggers and on my way I see Caico in the window. Literally IN the window!! We have those really old windows that are a wooden square that lifts up? Anyway this window has the air conditioner in the bottom part and (as I now discovered AFTER the fact) hubby forgot to put the foam in the space at the top when he put in the air conditioner. That blanket was NOT in the window at the time either. When I saw Caico in there I freaked out!! There is also a gap at the bottom edge of the top window right under where he was sitting......story cont. w/next photo
I rushed outside and crammed a baby blanket in the space. I ended up having to shove another full size blanket into the windows so that I slowly lifted Caico up towards the opening. I still couldn't get him all the way up to the opening and it was getting harder and harder to shove the blanket in. Worried now the pressure might make the glass break (remember this is also old glass-not shatter resistant stuff ya know?), I went back inside the house and put a branch into the opening and down to where Caico was at. It took him a couple of tries but he finally got up the stick and out the opening back into the dining room.
The boys all got a millet treat to help Caico calm down. Me? I was shaking for HOURS!!
So if you have old windows, PLEASE be sure they are sealed up!! I thought ours were, but they weren't. At least this one wasn't!!
