BBC1 now. Kicking off with a psychotic parrot...
How do you know its psychotic, did it take a pollygraph test?
Well, it's nasty. Has had its owner to A&E more than once. Seems related to having broken his leg a few years back.
Can the owner not just get a cat or at the very least going and swapping it for @stephen cartwright budgie or whatever it is that he is grooming out the back of his?
How big is the feckin thing
Seems like it needs reassurance and more mental stimulation. TBF, the same is also true of @stephen cartwright.
Do you think so? At times I worry @stephen cartwright has far too much mental stimulation. Do parrots get needy? I didn't realise that? Or maybe the parrot is mimicking its owner and its the owner that needy and the parrot is just pissed off and beats its owner up in a 'man the fuck up' type way? I'm not very good with parrot psychology.
Build trust, provide a stimulating environment and handle the bird safely seems to be the message. With those three things, he'll take a biscuit from your hand...
I saw this one the other day.
Football's on Sarah.
Is it me or has it got an Indian accent?
Rupert the cat was canny.
You got that from today’s Dear Deirdre didn’t you?
Had a dump on his owner's pillow next to her head and ran off... classy!
I'm no parrot expert but it might be fearful of the person it's attacking. Generally when you get these pet SOS/pet from hell scenarios it's usually something the owner is doing or not doing.
Having said that my 10 month old cat is tearing up my settee. I'm obviously not practising what I'm preaching.
I think it's just you. I've never seen one do an accent yet anyway.
That seemed to be the case. Partly the broken leg and one of his owners treating him and partly down to using oven gloves to handle him, or something.
All three pets tonight were much improved. I wish they'd throw a failure in sometimes on these shows.
A failure would mean an unhappy animal - or possibly rehomed. You cruel man! Mind I think I'd bite if someone approached me wearing oven gloves.
True. I hadn't really thought that through.
I've come down stairs occasionally to find that I've left my oven gloves out and the cat's asleep on them so not sure it's the gloves themselves that are the issue.
My cat is obsessed with washing up sponges, I'm always waking up to one on the bed.
I'm over stimulated
