Through Social Networking for Pets

You undoubtedly know the benefits of social networking with other people. Now you can socialize with other pet owners through YouPet! A Global Pet Community.

YouPet! is a vibrant community of pet owners who share information, news and stories about their pets, and get in-depth information about bird types and much more.

Introducing your parrot to the world is exciting and chatting with other bird owners and bird lovers expands your awareness of the richness of the bird world.

Click here to join

In the Profiles Section you will meet birds like Spike, who is a 4-year old female Cockatiel from Australia. Spike says, “Hi! My name is Spike. My owner thought I was a boy and called me that but we found out that I am a girl! I love eating biscuits and my seed. I love my play gym but I am lazy and sleep a lot.” Spike says: “Add me as a friend, message me, add a comment or give me a treat.”

Read and comment on thousands of bird blogs posted by birds within the YouPet! community. Birds have plenty to say if given the chance, so spend some time learning what birds are thinking and the experiences they like to share.

Harley, a blue and gold Macaw, says, “Oh what a morning. Mom came home with fresh fruit and bread this morning and made me French toast and eggs for breakfast. My favorite breakfast in the world. Little toast and a little swinging then I’m tearing into my phone book, maybe I’ll see what the M’s have today. I found out mom has been hiding treats in different sections so the phone book is my best toy right now. Well besides my swing. Nothing is better than my swing.”

Even if you don’t own a bird, but want to know more about them, this site is perfect for you. You will find Featured Birds, like the Umbrella Cockatoo: View a photo and discover that the Umbrella Cockatoo (Cacatua alba - also known as the White Cockatoo) is a medium-sized (up to 46 cm long) cockatoo endemic to the islands of Halmahera, Bacan, Ternate, Tidore, Kasiruta and Mandiole in North Maluku, Indonesia. At first sight it appears to be a white parrot with brown or black eyes and a dark grey beak. If it is surprised, it extends a large and striking crest, which has a semicircular shape (similar to an umbrella, hence the name). Enjoy thousands of bird profiles, pictures, videos, blogs and forums.

And then there’s Rainbow Bridge, a place for pets that have been loved and lost. When an animal that has been especially close to someone in the YouPet! community, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.

There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

The parrot world is huge

Dear Parrot Lover,

Social Networking is Not Just for Humans

Missy’s blog entry: 2/1/2010 - Sunday drive: Mommy and Daddy took me for a drive yesterday and it was so much fun. I sat on Daddy’s shoulder and looked at everything going by and made lots of comments! And when we had to stop I complained, because I just wanted to keep on moving.

Missy is a two-year old Dusky Conure who lives with “ConureCrazy.” Her favorite foods are macaroni, pumpkins, apples, cornflakes and grapes. She loves playing with and demolishing wooden clothes pegs. She rates 7 out of 10 on the “Lazy to Active” scale.

She says she loves being with people, snuggling in her hanging birdie bed, drawing on paper with her beak and says a few words like “yes” and “you stupid.”

Click here to learn more about Missy and thousands of other birds and bird owners around the world

Enjoy thousands of profiles of owners (you can search for other bird owners using a wide range of parameters) and share videos and blogs. What a wonderful way to find out if other owners are having the same problems you are with your bird and to learn surprising things about your bird breed that you don’t already know.

There’s never a dull moment with so many funny bird videos and so many interesting blogs by birds and their owners. You can play games and join forums, or visit the health center to get the advice you need.

If you need one-on-one advice, you can drop a message to Cindy, the site’s resident pet expert. She was a pet groomer for 25 years and has been a surgical vet tech, but now maintains two pet blog sites. She has three horses, two dogs and eight cats (she must be an expert to manage a family like that!). She formed a rescue group several years ago after being
a volunteer Shelter Manager and a volunteer Humane Educator for the Humane society.

Click here to introduce yourself to this global community of bird lovers

There’s a whole section of “How To” videos. For example, Zamzows Pet Room Manager Katie gives an introduction to Spanky, the Caique Parrot, and there are parrot training videos.

The Health Center is always open to help you out with health, behavior, care and nutrition concerns and needs. You’ll find tips like “How to Make a Pet First Aid Kit.” Now there’s something most of us don’t think about, but what a great idea to have a pet first aid kit that can be used to treat minor emergencies and to assist you and your pet in case a major emergency occurs.

Click here to connect with this broad and deep resource for you and your parrot

And there’s Rainbow Bridge, a place for pets loved and lost. When an animal that has been close to a member of this global community dies, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge where there are meadows and hills for all our special friends so they can run and play together. There is
plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

Favorite Food : corn on the cob
Favorite Activity : watching judge shows
Favorite Toy : toy that holds peanuts
Energy Level :

Vida’s owner says: Vida is a stunning bird that came to my private bird rescue/sanctuary in 2009. I call her a girl as she is so sweet, but I really don’t know. She say’s “out” when she wants on the play stand, and yells “come here” when she can’t see me. She has become comfortable in her new home and is now one of the flock. She has a club foot and is missing a toe, but it doesn’t slow her down. She loves to watch TV, eats like a football player, and gives kisses. I wonder if she knows she’s a bird.

Exclusive Parrot Lovers Community For You

Monday, March 30th, 2009

Dear Parrot Lover,

Welcome to my new Parrot Blog. I am sure all the Parrot lovers across the globe will be have a great time while interacting through this Blog.

The important topic I will cover in my Blog today is Cage Placement. The right cage placement can solve a lot of behavioral problems of your Parrot.

Let me relate an incident. My friend Jake had a parrot who was very cranky. He used to scream a lot and would try to bite anyone who went too close to his cage. My friend and his family were obviously very worried. They went to the vet but the bird was physically fit.

Do you know what the vet suggested as an antidote?

He told my friend to change the position of the cage. They shifted the cage to the kitchen area. From there he could see everyone in the hall. Surprisingly, in a few weeks, he changed to a very sociable and perky fellow!

Apparently, from his former position, the parrot couldn’t see much of his human-family. And that irritated him. And the only way he knew of showing his irritation was through screaming and biting.

So, you can now understand how important the right placement of the cage is.

Here are a 10 basic guidelines that you should keep in mind while choosing the right place.

=====Do’s=====

1. Keep the cage in a place from where he can see his human family. This helps in developing his social behavior.

2. Place it in a corner. If, for some reason, you have to place the cage in the center, make sure to cover at least 1/3 of the cage with cloth. That will give the bird a personal nook where he can retreat to.

3. Place the cage away from gusty winds.

4. Keep the cage somewhere high up in the air. It is best to hang the cage. Birds feel insecure on the ground.

======= Dont’s =======

1. Though your parrot needs to see everyone, don’t place him near a high traffic zone. Too many people coming into the room might make him nervous. Keep him at least five feet away from traffic.

2. Don’t place him near a window. Your parrot will always be worried about the predators he sees outside, and will try to be alert 24 hours a day. This will make him disagreeable and grumpy.

3. Place the cage away from cats.

4. Do not place the cage close to the TV.

5. And the last and most important thing to keep in mind regarding cage-placement is, allow your bird to establish his position in the environment you have placed him in.

6. Parrots don’t like changes. So once you have found a good place where you think he will feel safe and happy, don’t change it. Give him some time to get associated with the place.

Remember, the cage is your friend’s home. It should be such that it makes him feel comfortable and safe. A good cage goes a long way in keeping your parrot healthy and happy.

Today, I’d like to give you the heads up on an exclusive Parrot Training Video that I have just come across.
