    I googled "Quaker helmet" and got this... :coffeescreen: Not sure if Bobber will become more or less amorous with you if you had this on your head :hehe:

    This is going to sound awful but thank goodness I’m not the only one enduring hormonal season! It’s getting to where I can’t wait for everyone to go in their cages. :wideyed:

    Joey is out to get me with a vengeance. I have managed to get away with a few minor puncture bites. :hehe:
    I use the t-stick to transport him and engage him in getting him to dance and do some tricks.
    Stay safe everyone.:leslieatwork:

    CrazyBirdChick didn't express an opinion or view. She mis-read my post and then chose to name call and insult.

    But at least she apologised.

    So far today, no bites, no obnoxious screaming. Bobber is happily chewing on some toys and Jingo is guarding my coffee mug (his favorite activity).

    This is day 4 of Bobber being good. Day 1 for Jingo :lol:

    When we got a king bed I kept our queen sheets because the fitted sheets fit perfectly over the dogs' loveseat. Would putting different colors/patterns of sheets over the sofa as a slipcover help, too?

    :cheer: Way to go! I admire your resolve.

    I'll check! I've been wanting to get one for at least the back of the couch because of the bird poop anyways :)

    Bobber spent most of his day chewing on a hanging playgym in the living room, away from his cage (which was still in the dining room). He never plays with toys away from his cage. So win for us!

    That is a great idea and an easier solution that replacing the couch, the bird, the spouse, the TV..... oops sorry.

    I don't' know how you have handled 5 months of screaming, @Mizzely . you deserve an award.

    And I know someone said to avoid 'fear' inducing things but I tell you what, I'd put something at least a little scary (or something that at least makes them think twice) on that couch, or on the back of it!

    That's what we're doing currently. Those draft blockers for the door work great I'm finding

    Good idea. :chin: If I needed to keep Buzzard away from something I could keep him away with raw veggies because they are still the devil, evidently, and to be avoided at all cost. :meh:
