The Parrot In The Bathroom / Our dog-loving columnist finds the bird life surreal indeed. And you thought your cat was strange: "You see this one-foot-tall gray parrot, actually, tiny and delicate and uncommonly dwarfed by the high, arched 14-foot ceiling, just calmly walking down the hall and seeking you out and you just stand there and smile and watch as you get this strange and slightly unnerving sensation that says, whoa, wait wait wait, that's a bird. In my house. Walking toward me. On purpose."
if snooks doesn't allow me to get a cat, then we're going to have birds and snakes.
