Of course she is trying to teach me how to hunt! I am so clueless that she just looks at me with those big green eyes and says why can't you learn from me?
Actually, the worst, which I think I already posted so please forgive, was when Butzie came in with a mouse to play with and she flung it into one of the budgie's cages (another story). I told her that she was a good girl for catching the mousey, that she is a great huntress and I wasn't.
I took the cage (birds fly free) into the kitchen, quickly let the mouse outside, and sanitized the cage.
My life is very interesting with budgies that fly free (they were here first with a cat that could care less). With Butzie, it is a cat and bird game. They only do this in my bedroom where the cages are and where Butzie thinks is her main territory is. Butzie will try to catch the birds, only in my presence, just for me to let her out, and the boys have been known to buzz her when they want her out.
Life is very interesting in my bedroom. Funny, only when I am on TCS do they use this behavior!
If you haven't read my post about how Butzie's name is pronounced, it rhymes with tootsie or footsie and is definitely not BUTT zie.
I love all my pets and they love me and we all seem to get along, depending on which of the pets wants to be the King/ Queen.
