@Kidsandliz No he was old enough to get a cash allowance and he saved up. I think he got that to keep us out of his bathroom. Who wants to sit on the toilet with that type of shower curtain next to you.
@Felton10@Kidsandliz that is great. I always tell my family pupp-o gets a weekly toy/treat allowance that he can use as needed (birthday,Christmas, etc). They just roll their eyes and look at me like I am crazy lol
@Kidsandliz@tinamarie1974 Hey everyone already knows we are crazy letting that bird roam around the house. Couple of days ago during our old fart afternoon nap which stretched into the evening as it got dark-the only light in the house was the table lamp in our bedroom and the TV. Had forgotten to turn the light on the den where Walter and his cage were.
Anyway suddenly we were awaken by a loud chirp and looked down and saw Walter at the foot of our bed where he stayed for the next 20 minutes while we watched the news on TV. He missed us or didn’t like the dark so he came looking for us.
Actually Walter does use our shower for his showers. Have a pvc pipe with suction cups which I attached to the glass shower enclosure and spray Walter with a plant mister. Better than him going in his water dish for a bath.
@Felton10 Yeah seriously. Good idea. I discovered that fancy pigeon I rescued used his water dish (actually needed a deep one which I hadn’t provided but then I only had him for couple of hours before the rescue took him) and made a giant mess spilling water everywhere in the carrier I had him in.
@Kidsandliz I used to spray him in the cage and it got water all over the outside on the floor. Even when he goes in his water dish he shakes the water all over the floor around the cage. We haven’t taken showers together even though that might be a male bonding ritual.
@Felton10 that is so cool! My cat Shamrock loves water, used to come into the shower and walk around the edge of the tub (back when I had a big tub/shower, the one I have now is too narrow). Now she comes into the bathroom and sits on the bathmat waiting when the shower is running, because she wants to get petted with the warm water lol.
@Felton10 If Walter is as possessive as our cats, everything belongs to him. He may allow the human servants to use things but that is as far as it goes. Walter for king! (I love Walter stories and pictures.)
@Felton10 What does he like to watch? Animal Planet? Does he react to things he sees on TV? My cats always do initially, and then decide it’s a con and lose interest. Here’s a card I printed with a picture of my cat Taffy when he was still interested in TV.
@speediedelivery Walter has me wrapped around his little finger? (talon). He comes down from the cage and starts banging on my computer with his beak when he wants to be petted knowing I will pick him up and pet him.
@Felton10@Kyeh One of my cats used to play the piano. Very deliberately and carefully. Several watch TV and several (one especially) are entertained and interact with things on the computer. I have posted before a photo of Tigger attacking the cards that bounce across the screen when you win. He hears me play that and runs to cuddle up to watch the screen.
@Kidsandliz@speediedelivery Walter doesn’t have much to say in the matter although today for the first time, I heard Walter cuss. My wife had been saying for some time that Walter says FU but I had never heard him and this morning he must have said it at least 10 times. I am sure he got it from me since his cage is in my office and I often under such words when working.
