Don’t blame the Parrot!

Spreads for web 2

by Sally Blanchard

You loved that baby parrot and there was no doubt in your mind that it loved you. It was excited to see you and eagerly stepped on your hand. It was the light of your life and so much fun. It gave you his unconditional love. What happened? All of a sudden out of nowhere, it hates you. It doesn’t want to come out of its cage and if you put your hand in the cage, it bites you. If you can get it out, it doesn’t want anything to do with you. Then it started screaming and it is like fingernails on a chalkboard to you. Sometimes if you even look at it, it screams as if you are trying to murder it. You don’t understand because nothing has changed. Someone told you it was just going through a stage, but if so, will it ever end?

Maybe you shouldn’t take it personally, but your feelings are really hurt and you feel betrayed. Why did it suddenly turn mean? Maybe what you read somewhere on the Internet is true, that parrots are essentially wild animals and shouldn’t be pets because they can only be sweet and tame when they are young.
