ZBird sits puzzled and Charlie checks in!

Another Adventure

Charlie:  What are you thinking about so hard Zbird?

Zbird:  I was thinking about something I have noticed going on in the rain room!  You ever noticed that when humans take us in there they always close the lid on seat thing?

Charlie:  Are you talking about the toilet?

What's inside?

Zbird:  Yeah!  Well what do you think they are hiding in there they don’t want us to see?

Charlie:  Hey!  That is a good question Zbird.  You are right!  Every time I go in the rain room for my shower they do the same thing.  I do wonder what is inside?

Zbird:  Charlie I think we should put our heads together and figure it out!

Charlie:  Hummmmm!

 

Surprise Surprise

Charlie:  Maybe it is where they keep all the goodies and surprises.  Maybe they don’t want us to see them before the big party!

Zbird:  No Charlie they would never think about something like that;  it would have to be a true secret!  Like something they wouldn’t want us to eat!  I bet they hide wonderful goodies there.  I bet they go in there and eat all night while we are asleep!  I think I know what is in there…!

Yummy!  Yummy!

Charlie: Good point Charlie!  There is all kinds of foods we can’t have and maybe they do store food in there.  What kind do you think Z?

Zbird: Baby Ruth bars!  I believe chocolate is bad for dogs and some are allergic to peanuts!  I bet they have Baby Ruth bars in there and they eat them right out of the toilet!  I bet they gorge themselves and eat them without their fingers.  I think I once saw a human with their head all the way in there.

Charlie:  That is insane Z.  Hey, think of it this way.   Maybe they were smelling something!   I think it is something beautiful and smells wonderful!  If they had their head in there I bet it has to be great!

Smells good!

Zbird:  Maybe it is great!  Charlie maybe it is bright and shiny and would hurt our eyes?  Maybe it is something so cool they think we might steal it.

Cover your eyes!

Charlie:  Oh cool!  Like a treasure Zbird?

Zbird:  Yes Charlie!  Like a treasure!  I bet there are Treasurezzz in the toilet!  We must figure out a way to get inside.

Charlie:  Great idea Zbird!  How you going to get inside is the question?  We are just birds and we have no arms.  We have to get a plan together.

Zbird:  That’s right Charlie.  We must work on a plan………

Do you need help affording prescriptions for your pets?

We love our pets and finding out they are sick and need medication can cause a huge financial burden on some households.  As a member of the family it can be devastating to realize the medication is costly and without it your pet will suffer if not cause a more serious situation.

Did you know that often the medications that are given to your pet are just smaller or lower doses of medications made for human consumption?  It is to your benefit to ask your vet if the meds are a lower dose and have them write you an actual prescription.  Often as pet owners we feel that we have to get the medication at the vet paying the price they determine.  With the prescription you can shop around for a much lower price at a regular pharmacy.

We now have released a discount prescription card for your pet and this card can be used at any participating pharmacy.  All you have to do is go to our site, print out the pet discount card and start saving today.  On our site you can look up a pharmacy in your area that will use the card and also research the price savings.  The card is absolutely FREE, will not expire and can be used over and over.

The only thing I ask is if the card helps you that you would come back and share your story with us.  You can get your discount prescription pet card by clicking on this link —–> FREE PET CARD

If you own a business and would like me to provide you with hard copies of the Pet Discount Card for your customers I will be glad to.  Please contact me for details. You can also forward the link to your customers if you like.  Your customers and your pets will be glad you did!

Here at Cockatiel Confessions we like to keep things on the upbeat and happy side. There are already enough negative things going on in the world.

If you are a negative person you can always turn on the local news and bask in it. If you hang out with us nuts here at Cockatiel Confessions we may be able to produce a smile, a laugh or at least a “What the heck?”

Today I want to share one good story that I was able to squeeze out of our local news coverage. It is unbelievable. We have heard of cats getting under the hood of a car but a dog? This video is a wonderful story about how complete strangers come together to help a homeless puppy find a safe home.

Be sure to share this story with a pet lover nearest you as we all need to feel the love! Ahhhh!

What in Z World?It is spring here at the farm and things have been quite busy!  I have been doing some spring cleaning around my cage and decided it was time to spring clean the blog also.

Spring is a great time to take the cages outside and give them a strong once over.  Air the rugs out, shave the dog, re-pot the no-no plant and move the Finch cage!!

My first task for the blog is to close out the “What in Z World” Week 8 contest!  Teri said the item looks like some crazy sort of torture device for cats.

And now the answer!I wanted to try it out on Smoky but Hello said that was being ugly and it is very hard to turn because it is so old.  Jan Santor came in the closest as she guessed that it was a capping device.   You were sooooo close that I am going to award you as the winner; however, the item is actually for opening jars.  Here is a picture of the bottom.   I think it would be cool for everything to have instructions on the bottom and then you would never have to guess what to do with it.  Mine would read:

How to handle the Z.The next item on my list is to help you guys out with “What in Z World” Week 9. I have added an additional picture to help in your guess.  To go to this link click here.——->  (Week 9) Once we reach week 10 I am going to start mixing things up.  I have decided not to do the What in Z world contest every week because I have some new series that I want to start. (More on this later)  Weeks will then become Items opening the site to more of my antics.

Current series and contest include:

What in Z World?

Can Someone Pass Me the Soap?

I’m not sure what the code is for cats and why they just hate getting wet.  I think they have been told if they get wet they will melt.  With even a drop it seems they grow extra legs and claws and run like the wind.

Dog in the bath.With dogs the whole bath thing can go either way.  Some do, some don’t!   Rd likes baths because he is always looking for some deer dung to roll in so Hello will have to wash him again.

Fish love to take baths!  I know this because I have yet to see one not in the process of bathing.  Those Fish guys like it so much; Hello has to drop food in while they hang out underwater.  They stay underwater forever and I never see them sleep.  The thing I don’t understand is with all that bathing why do humans say fish smell bad?

I have several interest so I don’t have as much time as Fish to bathe, But, I love getting wet!  Anytime I hear the water turn on I get so excited that it might be my turn to shower.   This week I collected a few pictures of some of my Facebook friends enjoying their shower.
Chiquito playing in the water.This first photo is of Chiquito and her human Liz Visser’s arm.  I love how Chiquito is just hunkered down taking it in.  I think he is trying to be a fish. Through all those drops of water I believe that I can see a smile coming through. You dirty devil your getting clean!

Bella in the shower

Pally Williams took this great photo of Bella taking her bath!  I bet if we were there in the bathroom she would be singing to us.  Look at how she lifts her wings to be sure to get all the feathers.  I do the same thing when I am in the shower but I like to hide my head under my wings. It is kind of a trick I play. I want Hello to think my head went down the drain. Hee Hee

Z with his little bathtub looking at the bubbles

Last of all it is me and my little bathtub!  This bathtub is way to small for me but I like play on it after I take my showers.   I am not to sure about these bubbles floating around in my drinking water but check out this cool bath sponge Hello got.  It fooled all of you on this weeks “What in Z World”.  I loved all of your guesses this week and it could have been all those things but it was just my little sponge buddy I named “Scrub”  I win this week!  Gotcha!

It surprised me to find that the Queen travels with candy.  I am not talking about the Queen of England’s Dorgis (Dachshund X Corgis mix) dog named Candy but a Queen Bee.  That’s right an actual Queen Bee.  This week I stumped everyone playing “What in Z Word” with my weird little boxy thing.

What more pets?…..

See when going down the list of pets here at the farm I neglected to tell you the pet count included bees.  Really the reason was I sent over the 2010 Census forms and they have not sent them back yet.  I can’t seem to find anyone here to go knock on the door to get the answers.

What is that Weird Little Boxy Thing?……

Ok, Ok, See in every hive there are thousand of bees but only one Queen.  During the spring build up a healthy queen bee will lay about 2000 eggs a day.  She will do this for several years.  As one can imagine this chick gets worn slap out and she will have to be replaced with a new energized fresh queen bee at some point.  This happens naturally in nature using several different methods.  For the hobbyist or professional this can become a matter of production or to protect the survival of the colony.

Bee enthusiast will periodically shop for a queen and the weird little boxy thing is what the queen travels in.

The Queens Travel Box

So What’s Up With The Candy?……

You can’t just throw a new queen in an already existing hive and think it is going to go over well.  No way!  Bees are very protective about their hive.  The Queen simply has to be introduced to the colony.  The colony can consist of about 40,000 to 60,000 bees so a receiving line is out of the question.  The little boxy thing provides security to the queen while the new colony adjusts to her scent.  When the queen is placed inside the box a small piece of candy plugs the hole and keeps her from escaping.  The queen will not eat the candy because she has to be feed by the workers.  Queens only lay eggs. (Period)  Once the box is placed in the hive the worker bees begin to pass by the box touching the queen and spreading her scent around the hive and taking a small chunk of candy off of the end.  Like a gift!  Eventually the candy is all gone and the queen’s scent is all over the place offering her an opportunity to leave her chariot and become a part of this new colony.  Cool huh!

Candy here!
