Budgies & Other pets
 
Hey all, Am just curious to which budgie owners have other pets? What pets do you have? Does your budgies interact with them and is there any pet that should most definitely not be kept in the same house for any reason as your feathery babies?
I know about unsupervised etc but are budgies allergic to any animal? I know it sounds like an odd question! but am curious! x

I have my English guy, Hector, and I have my two cockatiels, Candy and Tony. In addition, I have a maltese/poodle mix pooch Eddie. I also have two gerbils, Creampuff and Fudge.
They all get along well. :)

I have 7 budgies of course, and a cat named Jewel. Jewel is scared to death of the birds.

I have my 2 budgie boys. :)
My SO and I used to have a rescue German Shepard cross breed(most likely lab), we expect that she'd been abused physically, but we never got to know, she was terrified of everyone except me and my SO.

We introduced her to our oldest budgie, and we were a little sceptical. First day she tried to snap him while he was flying out, without luck fortunately, and we told her off for it, ever since she never even flinched at him. He continued to try and land on her head and land beside her and play, and the poor girl was all confused, not knowing what to do. :laughing:

She continued to chase birds and other animals outside, but never showed a tooth at our budgie after that first time. She had patients with him, and she sniffed him, even tried to lick him one time.

My SO was so scared that she'd eat him, this one time when he landed next to her, when she was laying in the window and I told him to leave them to it, see what happened, and surely, they just sat next to each other and looked out the window. I'd never seen her so calm before in my life, next to something so small. It was like our budgie boy was a little scent of relaxation for her. :o

Unfortunately we had to give her away. We couldn't save her. She continued to try and attack people, even people in our home. Growl, bark, snap, bare her teeth at people, other dogs, everyone, we couldn't control her and she eventually drew blood on a guy. Luckily for us, he was fine, understood us and didn't press charges.

When she'd been with people for an hour or more, she was the most loving dog I've ever been with. She had a real personality, she was like a person in a dog form. Full of life and expression.

We ended up having to put a harness on her, a mussel and never go near people. We couldn't give her the exercise she needed, so we gave her back to the RSPCA, for her own good. We don't know how she's currently doing as they can't share information with us, but the RSPCA did everything they could for us, to make giving her back the last option.

I've attached some pictures of her, if you'd like to know what she looks like.

And I'd never keep a cat and birds in the same house.
My SO would love to have a cat, but we both don't think it'd work.

(Please ignore how very not pretty I am. I was a little bit ill at the time. :laughing:)

Hi!

I have a german shepherd girl named Vida. 2 cats, a parrotlet and a new budgie :) Also 1 betta fish :)

My shepherd is good with all my pets. She loves my cats and ignores the bird. My cats on the other hand are very interested in my bird so I do a lot of juggling. My catss are never home alone with my birds and when the bird is out my cats are put away. Love my zoo, it all works out if you are diligent with keeping on top of everyone. :)

I have fish...the budgies and them get along great....:D

I also have a maltese dog and she is only ever around my tiel because he is the only bird I bring around her. She ignores him and lays on my lap while he is on my shoulder. He is interested in her though and loves to go down by her and pull/preen her hair...:)

I have a chihuahua, a shih poo, and a leopard gecko, along with my four budgies. Teddy, my shih poo, has been known to catch the odd budgie midair when they make a break for it, but he's never hurt them. He'd never hurt another animal on purpose and is extremely gentle, but when a bird flies over his head, his instincts take over. Before we rehomed our cockatiels, he loved Colipso, the female. Once he nudged his ball over to her, wanting her to play with him <3. When we had hamster, Big Red and him would (play)fight through the bars of the cage.

Oh, right. Budgies. When Peanut, our parrotlet, was dying, he flew into the budgies' aviary to hang out. They all got along fine, although if he was healthy he might have tried to nip them. We also kept our cockatiels in with the budgies, but they generally only socialised with their own species. The budgies did like trying to hang off of Colipso's tail feathers, though.

I have two cats and two budgies. I had the cats first. I always have the cats locked up whenever I have the birds out, or no out time. The cats ignore the birds, the birds are VERY interested in the cats. Sweetie is always singing and dancing to them. I don't see myself getting anymore pets for quite some time, I never thought I would have birds in the first place, never mind birds and cats at the same time.
