Eve is a big fat faker! Once again it is breeding season, and once again Eve is well...kinda crazy. This really is the only time of year that Eve talks or vocalizes. I never know what he is gonna do or say, or how he is gonna behave. But bedtime can be especially difficult this time of year. He flies back and forth in an attempt to escape the inevitably bed time. Well last night, I managed to wrangle him, and carry him to his cage. In order to this I had to hug him to keep him from flying off. So the little monster starts yelling...."Ouch! OOOOOOW, OW, OOOOW, Ouch! OWWWWWWWWW. So I instinctively put him down, (somehow forgetting that if he was really in pain he would not be saying Ouch as he is not human), and he proceeds to laugh at me! Little faker!

So The other day I went shopping and splurged on some T bone steak. So tonight I was set to have my self a nice dinner, steak, rice, salad. Hmmmm. Did I really think that a yummy dripping with steak juice dinner was gonna get by Eve, my carnivorous parrot, who happens to have started breeding season and therefore looks for anything protein based? I put rice in his dish....stupid human...He kept flying by to look at my dinner, putting on his ever so sweet face, that says give me or your gonna regret it. So tonight Eve got the T Bone part of the steak! Just the center bone with about 1/4 inch of meat around it. I know the best friggin part of the porterhouse! Spoiled bird. I'm such a sucker to a bird in need. (hmmph) But I must say that Eve ate the meat and the entire bone and is now very happily digesting and for the first time today is quiet. I mean I had just changed to papper on the stand and after the dinner the paper was perfectly clean! Eve didn't let a drop went to waste. (not that I encourage red meat for birds mind you! Not even for vasa's really, cause the cholesterol, but what a treat.)
