Evening scene

My canary has decided not to sleep in her cage tonight, probably because she disliked going to the vet.
Instead, she seems keen on the space ship models, but can't decide between x-wing or tie fighter.
So she's hopping from one to the other in the half-dark while her cage-mate the zebra finch is sitting on the sleep-nest honking quietly, looking puzzled.

oh that is such a cute image in my head. i love birds. i always thought i'd like to have some, but don't know how well that would work with an active kitty who already lives here.

Birds and cats combine badly I think - you'd have the cat permanently attached to the outside of the cage, like a strange reverse feeder. Although I've seen photos of cats and budgies getting along I've heard more stories of tragedy.

You should see the zebra finch, he's handsome, bold, and very very tiny. And on a constant quest for the perfect nest to share with the canary. Most entertaining pets I ever had...
