Joyce asks: I have another question.
I like to clean my bird’s cages with small white washcloths from Costco.
I have been noticing they are getting very holey.
I figured they just weren’t that great anymore and then I see Snuggles my Severe Macaw having such a great time talking to them and chewing on them!
Will this hurt him?
Also, I can’t use dark colors to clean his cage, or I will get attacked or even walking by holding clothes or towels, he gets so excited.
This is nothing new he still acts like a baby, I have had him since he was 9 weeks old and we just celebrated his 31 birthday🙂❤
Also, he does yoga, he will pull his wing over his body for a couple of minutes, closes his eyes, and stretches.
None of my other birds have ever done that.
Have you heard of that?
Yeah, we have a love/hate relationship with Costco too 🙂

The small white cotton washcloths are made with “looped” fabric which can snag a toenail or become threads that can be swallowed so they’re fine for cleaning but not foraging.
While you’re washing the birdcage have some craft fleece in your hand, then do a bait and switch with Snuggles leaving a piece of bird safe fleece for him to enjoy which fulfills some of his enrichment needs.
Birdie Yoga? Yep, it’s a thing –
Happy birthday Snuggles
