    I could bring my birds, but I don't.... I have brought one bird before... but that was back when she wasn't feeling well and I was keeping a close eye on her. Brought my cat once as well, when she wasn't doing well. I don't remember the situation of why she was there, other than she was really drugged up... had brought my dog on several occasions as well just to get him out of the house more... unfortunately, all have since passed on.

    My coworkers and boss *loved* my dog - in fact, my bosses (and the daughter) wish my dog could have been there's, or even wish one of their dogs was like mine. Only one person, being one of my bosses, met my cat... and she (boss) loved her (the cat) as well. A couple of coworkers and at least one of my bosses also 'met' the bird I had brought in... thought she was interesting and cute. Overall though, they were mostly interested in my dog!



    Of the ones I have now, a wild caught african ringneck would *not* be happy about getting moved frequently... Then there's Casey, who'd probably freak out about being away from the rest of the flock and would probably have a fit being kept caged. (crappy warehouse.... tall ceilings, lots of stuff high up , plus some windows...) Or Charlie... who would enjoy it if he could be on me 24/7, and if he wasn't, would be screaming his head off.


    There's really no place to set up a *proper* bird cage, the warehouse is kept at 50° at night, although warmed up when someone is there... and in the summer, it gets extremely hot! There's no AC in the warehouse I work in... just fans we place around the warehouse to try and keep it cool... there's also no barrier between the warehouse door and the outside world, so if I did have a bird out, that would be an issue. I do keep the door locked, but I still have coworkers and my bosses that may come and go and have their own keys to get in. Don't exactly feel comfortable bringing them in.
