Since I've had a few questions about my Bird, I thought I would introduce her. She is an 11 year old Quaker Parrot. Her name is Queen Esmeralda, but her nickname is Izzy. Sometimes she can be a real sweetheart, and other times it's nag, nag, nag. Those who have Quakers know what I mean. They can be the ultimate control freak around the house. Here is a photo of Izzy preening our cat. They get along great.
Our other cat did not like her one bit after she chased him around the living room floor nipping at his toes...pretty embarassing for a cat. She also shooed him out of his favorite rocking chair, and we believe that was the unforgivable insult.
