I put a toilet paper roll up on the shelf my keet likes to sit on. It just sat there for a few days but now I guess she's used to seeing it there, and last night she stuck her head in it and lifted it up. It was so funny sitting on her head, she was enjoying it. Now she loves playing with it.

Just an idea to try with your keets, maybe they'll like it 2.

I spend money on toys and she doesn't use them, yet she plays with a toilet paper roll..go figure laugh

Um, actually Lisa always says never to give them toilet paper rolls cuz they've got bad germs all over them that could make them sick. eek But you can cut a paper towel roll into short pieces so they're not as long. I did that for my keet, and he loves it. Not trying to knock your idea or anything, but just thought I'd tell you about that. smile smile

It's okay to give them the toilet paper rolls if they haven't been used...if you just took all the toilet paper off right away.

I didn't know it was bad for them eek But I don't see how a tp roll collects so many harmful germs? It's covered with tp until it's used up, so I can't see it being more dirty then the keets cage, or even your finger. Oh well smile

You have a point there...Hmm...I don't know. All I know is Lisa said that there are too many germs. But, your point makes sense, how would it be too much different than anything else?

Me too! Also you have to be careful with paper towel rolls cos the kind I use has glue to hold the last piece on and I don't want my keets chewing glue!

The germs are like, "Eee! Eee! Eee!" and the move all around... then the find a way to the center, which to them, is like the center of the earth... and they all wanna be the first to explore it... but they all get there anyways... so the TP roll is covered in them!


(Don't take this too seriously... just a random thought that popped up in my not-so-sane head laugh )
