Rainbow Exotics, a whole sale bird breeder for Petsmart has confirmed cases of psittacosis. This sign is in Ohio, but they supply the entire US.

If you have purchased a bird from Petsmart please bring them to a vet. Psittacosis is a highly contagious zoonotic disease that can kill your bird and create flu-like symptoms in humans. It is treatable with antibiotics for your birds if caught early. It is generally not serious in people, although if left untreated it can be.

If you have bought toys or cages from Petsmart please disinfect them before giving them to your birds! Or return them. Psittacosis can live in feather dust and droppings for months.

Please share. And consider adopting your next bird from a rescue.

Not enough of you reblogged this. Please, signal boost!

As an employee I can confirm this is true! It really fucking sucks. Our vendor is shit.

I will say though that if you purchased a bird from Petsmart within that time frame, they WILL cover costs of testing+potential treatment. The testing alone is about 100 bucks according to my vet, so don’t hesitate to milk Petsmart for some moolah.

The other day, my friend and I went to the owl cafe in Osaka, called Owl Family Osaka. We had a 60 minute time slot, the beginning of which we were given detailed instructions about the manner and way of handling the owls. After the instruction, we were able to play with the owls.

The women running the establishment were really friendly and were so loving to the owls, they really helped us to understand the owls that we interacted with!

There were a few owls we were allowed to handle in our allowed time, while some others were in an area where they rested.

It was a really great experience!! The owls were very well behaved and were incredibly friendly. There is also a really cute little owl goods shop in the cafe~!

You should definitely visit someday if you have the chance!

Bird history being made, bird peace

there are bluebirds flying around our windows, clinging to the screens and chirping

its a pair, and i can’t tell what they have against our windows. they aren’t really pecking at them, just fluttering around them, chirping, landing on the chimney/roof and then switching spots. sometimes the female goes at the male like she’s gonna peck him but doesn’t really chase him after?

idk its confusing and i keep hearing the noise of them clinging to the screen and its weird

btw when i went out yesterday there was a lady shopping with a lovebird on her shoulder

i ended up in the changing room next to her and look at her little buddy just chillin on her purse like no big thang
