Phoenix has started copying my laugh, and I think he’s learned the appropriate timings for a laugh too! :roflmao: He usually does this thing where he’ll stand there pronouncing peekaboo in funny ways and then start laughing (like he did in the video) but he’ll laugh at funny situations, too, like if I accidentally startle him he’ll start laughing. It’s too cute!!!

Yep. Burt laughs every version of my laugh (which I actually find unsettling lol) and generally he does it at the most appropriate times.

That is cute. He'll be a great talker. Start talking his head off.

Not just a laugh. An evil belly laugh. Yikes. :D

Buzzard started laughing a little over a year ago. A few months later I realized it was my laugh! :shocking: (Hubby and our houseguest were surprised I didn't know.) And he knows exactly when to do it. :joyful:

Mango tries to mimic but doesn’t quite have the hang of it or use it in context,

Mango mimics my laugh and I usually tell him to stop mocking me. :rofl:

@JLcribber that video is how Secret used to take a bath! They sling water EVERYWHERE!

First one to see it was my father-in-law when we were on vacation.

My bird does that too! If I start laughing and Pepe is on me, he will start laughing too! It’s really funny. He only does it when it’s a genuine laugh, he never does it if I fake laugh to try to get him to laugh. It doesn’t quite sound like a human laugh, but you can definitely tell he is trying to mimic me or family members.

I wouldn't be surprised if birds laugh for the pure joy of it. Rats are known to laugh when tickled according to scientists (it's been recorded, but we can't hear it).

I heard about that!! I used to have a rat that loved it when I “wrestled” with her, she loved her tummy tickled :heart:

Same with Buzz! You can't fake laugh to show people how he laughs, he does it when something's funny!
