Well my boyfriend took the huge cage down to the alley behind my house and he and my super sprayed it down with the hose. My boyfriend also put the wheels back on the bottom of the cage so now I can move it easily. It weighs 87 pounds empty. My dog decided to come along into the photograph. He is getting into the modeling business and thought it would be good practice.
It is about five feet tall. My dog is about 20 pounds if that helps.
I had a migraine yesterday and it is still here today. I don’t know how much I am going to get done today. Yesterday I curled up in bed all afternoon and evening. My migraine hit yesterday in the afternoon so hopefully it will be gone by the end of today. I hate migraines. Mine are pretty bad ones. I’ve found that this helps:
In case you wanted to know! This one actually belongs to my best friend’s mother, who is really my second mother. They were kind enough to get me a bottle of my own! This stuff is amazing and I am so glad they introduced me to it. In case you can’t read the name it is called Hoe Hin White Flower Analgesic Balm. Good for sore muscles, stuffy noses and bug bites too. I rub it into my temples and it helps dull the pain a lot. I also take Aleve Liquid Gels, which are the only pills I have found that have any effect. Nothing I do makes the pain go away but at least I stop bashing my head against the wall because it feels so good when I stop. Maybe I should get some prescription Aleve-type pills. I just don’t want anything crazy that will have me drooling in the corner like a zombie. I hate migraines and my dog and birds know when I have them. When I turn off all the lights the birds don’t complain at all. My dog will curl up in a ball next to me and stay there, when he usually sleeps under the bed. We all sleep the migraine off. Too bad my migraines last for at least 24 hours. I wish I could sleep 24 hours…
Well since I had a migraine I didn’t put anything in the bird cage. You can’t see from the picture I took but there are four open spaces at the bottom for keeping food dishes. A poorly designed cage in my opinion, but hey, I already paid for it! So it didn’t take Squeaky long to realize if he head butts the food dishes hard enough they fall out (covering the floor with food, of course) and he can escape. He had a lot of fun with that. I ended up moving two pieces of furniture to cover either end so they couldn’t get out. Imagine my surprise when I was informed that there is a better way. I was supposed to receive two panels to put in either side to seal it off. Guess what? The pet store I purchased the cage from took those panels out of my cage and used it in one of theirs. I realized this a few months ago but I bought the cage a few years ago. What jerks. I stopped going to their store anyway because one of their employees was constantly following me around hitting on me even though he knew I had a boyfriend, whom he had met before. I decided they don’t get my money anymore if they can’t be bothered to keep an eye on their employee. The last straw was when he kept aggressively trying to give me his number even though I told him time and again I didn’t see why I would need his number. My poor boyfriend hates him but resisted the urge to mangle and maim.
The point is I got a big piece of plexiglass and am going to cut two pieces out to use as barriers. I am going to cut two 20″ by 8″ pieces and slide them in the side slots. I love this bird cage even though it has its flaws. My cockatiels love it too!
So how to redesign my cage? It is empty now and I can do whatever I want. I want to leave a big space in the middle empty so I can buy a big boing and put it in.
Now on to the breakfast I made them yesterday morning.
First I chopped up some brussels sprouts.
I put some goji berries in a coffee mug and added some boiling water. Don’t ask why.
I added mixed veggies (corn, peas, carrots, and string beans) to the chopped up brussels sprouts and then the goji berries that were heated up and softened by the boiling water. The final touch was red palm oil!
