Newbie Here!!! - 12/09/07 11:02 PM

Hello, everyone!! My name is Jessica, and I'm new here. I'm the mom to one human child, Kate, and a bunch of animal kids. We have Sunny, our newest member, he's a keet, then there's Miss Pearl and Harriet our rats, Gizmo our cat, Gordy the goldfish and Fluffy the betta! We just got Sunny the other day after our other parakeet, Myrtle, passed suddenly. Sunny is a baby and is fresh out of the nesting box. So far everything is great with him, except we're needing to watch him closely to make sure that he eats, since he was just taken from him mom. He's the sweetest thing EVER and loves to be held and to climb around in the Christmas tree!




Harriet is hairless. Miss Pearl is a blonde hooded rat.
Thanks so much for taking a look!!

Hey Everyone,,I'm a newbie too!! We got our first keet a few weeks ago now,beautiful blue young one my son named" SuperBird" after watching his antics lol. I came here looking for reasons other than fear that made SuperBird start biting and found a great forum here and have been reading abit. Thought I'd join.
Anywway,we let SuperBird out of the cage for the last few weeks and he found new "friends" in the mirror. He still loves us but I think he wants his friends in the cage not us(maybe why he bites?) Well back to basics for us for now. Hope to get to know you all

Mirrors are bad to give to birds. They bond with their new friend in the mirror and not with you. Perhaps he's being protective of his new friend and that's why he's biting you!

Well, we brought Gizmo, our cat, into our home when he was a tiny kitten and the rats were already established members of the family...I think he just kind of accepted them as housemates. Kinda funny, but it's cute. Sometimes we have to give him a little reminder 'shooshing' sound to get him from wrestling too hard, but other than that, no problems! He treats them like small cats!!

Hey thanks for the welcome! Sorry it's been awhile but I was having trouble finding the forum again and then the pages. Some sites are easier than others. I hope to spend more time here and get to know ya'll. Everyone's posts seem like a bunch of happy and nice people here. "Superbird" has begun biting Daniel(my 8yrold) now that we have him(the bird lol) in a larger new cage. He'll settle I hope? Anyway,hope to get to know all of you soon

your animals are absoltely adorable and so is your baby, I love children, but just a heads up, not trying to nag, but Lisa does not allow pictures of minors (those uner 18 years) to be posted, including children, so PDM's probably going to edit your post and take down the pictures of your baby.

I love your rats, I know I love my peace =]]]
your kitty reminds me of a darker version of tigger as a baby.

well, welcome to the forum, I know you'll love it here, it really is very fun... (yet also very addicting).
