Angry Bird Owner
Who would have thought that the birdcage that you bought from a pet shop isn't escape proof? I really wasn't expecting that one of the lovebirds I bought can easily get out passing through the gap of the cage. I was really speechless for a while, I saw the bird as it slowly moved its way out of the opening but I wasn't able to move fast enough to prevent the escape. I just can't help but sigh for the loss. If only I could return the cage and ask for refund, I would, but that would be too complicated.
Going back to the cage, we bought it from a known pet shop in the city and it wasn't cheap. I'm just so disappointed to get a defective cage that can't hold birds inside. They should have anticipated even the smallest pet bird should not be able to get out of the cage. And to think, it was already a full grown adult lovebird.
Now, I need to buy a replacement since my kids keep on asking me to. They were worried that the other bird would get lonely and die, having heard of it. Why should lovebirds need to come in pair? And where did people get the notion that they die of loneliness when their partner leaves them? I guess, even lovebirds aren't an exception in giving someone heartaches... haaayyyy...
I already covered the top portion of the cage with a fine net as an additional restriction to the "birdfree" (that's what we call the cage now). I made sure the top portion where the bird escaped was covered. There's no point in crying over spilled milk. What's done is done. Lesson learned. Birdcages aren't always built to cage birds, so take the necessary precautions. LOL. Yahweh bless.
