Thanks Laura.......now, if only I'd had spotted the design fault with the cage, it would save my poor carpet endless vacuuming! There's no guard around the bottom of the cage. Dooby picks up seed, veg, apples, millet, peanuts, whatever else he can fit in his beak and throws it out!! Oh joy. Apart from that though, it's a lovely cage, so light with no dark corners to encourage the hormones to rage! lol
hehe.... I so now that feeling you should see underneath my cage I went out and bought a little hand held shop vac, I have to vacuum under it twice a day morrning and evening Ollie and Georgie are little pigs...lol Georgie flings her pellets right across the room, One day I will have to invest in one with a seed catcher although I somehow get the feeling they would still make it across the room
Yeah, I think you are right, I've even had seed in my coffee when he was in his old cage! I'm going to get one of those hand held vacs. My brother has one that he never uses, so I'm going to relieve him of the storage responsibility. lol.
Lovely photos! Dooby can look sooo sweet..I love my vaccumm too- could not go without it! Nice cage for him too-believe me the seed guard does nothing-they'll still toss things out. Just be glad you don't have a macaw or a 'too..they throw very far! lol
The bedding is a sort of woodchip. It's not splintery though, it feels very soft, it never looks dirty either in the bottom of the cage. It's not dusty either like sawdust that you would use for a rabbit or guinea pig.
Even with a guard, I believe that the tiels consider it their mission to keep us on our toes by chucking things outside their cage. My two sit at the top of the cage and look down like they are inspecting my vacuming.
Great photos, I love the black back drop you use - makes the pictures come out extra great. And wow hasn't Dooby grown up fast, very handsome. It sounds stupid but he actually does look like Willow, a little bit lol.
Are you seeing it?! They also both have a pied spot on the back of their heads.
Awww, look at Dooby being a snuggly boy. You could always buy a material seed guard, i had one for my first budgie because she was MESSY. The amount of seed that got caught in the seed catcher was amazing.
