Hot New Bird Book Release -- The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar by Martin Windrow

Owl.png

Here at Super Cool Pets we were surprised to hear the other day that pet birds such as parakeets, cockatiels, parrots are considered "exotic pets".

We understand that category for reptiles such as snakes and lizards, along with other normally wild animals such as rabbits, ferrets, mice, but birds and even fish?

So how about choosing an owl for a companion?

In The Owl Who Liked Sitting on Caesar: Living with a Tawny Owl British military historian Martin Windrow tells the tale of his 15 year live-in relationship with a tawny owl he named "Mumble" who became his closest companion. Fascinating!

Read a good review here A Rare Bond | NYTimes.com, marred by spoiler at the very end.

Hot New Pet Book Release -- Animal Madness by Laurel Braitman

Animal_Madness.png

We all are expected to put on a happy face here in America, but the reality is that life is fraught with suffering. Suffering and fear thereof can lead to depression, anxiety and mental illness.

If you live with an animal and are an observant sort, you likely know that non-humans suffer mentally as well as physically. Laurel Braitman noticed this in her anxiety-prone Bernese Mountain Dog. Extensive subsequent research brought her to the conclusion that animals can lose their minds just like we humans.

That's the premise of her Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves -- that nonhuman animals can suffer from mental illnesses that mirror those that humans endure. And they can recover, just like we can.

Fascinating stuff at Animal Madness: How Anxious Dogs, Compulsive Parrots, and Elephants in Recovery Help Us Understand Ourselves.

Perch and Go Clear View Bird Carrier and Travel Cage

Stainless_Bird_Travel_Cagejpg.jpeg

Traveling with your pet bird is sometimes necessary for trips to the vet, on road trips, perhaps to your office, or just out and about. But travel with a bird does present challenges.

You want a safe carrier that your bird will not destroy. You don't want the bird to get injured or to escape in transit. Plus the carrier itself must be manageable--a size easy for you to carry and to fit in your vehicle.

The sturdy Perch and Go Clear View Bird Carrier and Travel Cage will meet these criteria. Your birds can see out which they will like. Suggested for Cockatiels, Conures, Quakers, Caciques, African Greys, Amazons, Mini Macaws, small Cockatoos and other similar size parrots.
