Oh tell me about it :Z I cannot get that toy to look like it can withstand a beating! I am thinking i may attach a straw, horizontaly then attach the ball toy that way. I have about 30 knots in about 10 places on that darn toy, but i still do not like it. I also feel that if i have to move, while she is on it i could hit her with it.
For the inner parts we used Elmers Wood glue. We called the company to this one, and they stated all things are non toxic, and that its safe. It also says here http://www.birdboard.com/forum/get-help-your-bird/17029-safe-glue.html
Wood glue is fine. There was a few other forums, but i dont need to link up the post LOL. Also hot glue (the low temp...kind) was used to help keep other things in place and also cover up the large black screws on the outside of the toy stand. We both made sure that Puddles would have to go out of her way to get to the glue and to chew it up. When we say out of her way, she has to either shrink down, and fit under and in places, get into mucho trouble while out on this toy.
My thoughts are Puddles should never be left out, while i am not in the room, too many dangers, so there will always be supervision for her and her perch. It 100% as safe as i can get it, but she will find a way probably :P little buggar!
Soooo, how do i get her on it?
