Default Not sure if i have left my budgies in a safe home for 1week

hello i am going on holiday tomorrow and i dropped of my budgies at my dads friends house for the week. he has looked after my budgies over the years when we have went away on holiday but its been atleast 2-3 years since we have seen my dads friend and when we took the budgies up he forgot their names and asked were the other budgies are i use to have 5 but 3 died over the years but he was aware that 2 of the 3 budgies that died but he kept getting mixed up with the names of the budgies i took up today with the budgies that died years ago and he even asked how charlie was even though he died in 2009 when he was looking after him

it was abit of a shock it seemed like he was forgetting stuff and losing his mind abit he is in his 70s so he might have the start of dementia thats what i thought anyhow

anyhow do yous think it will be safe to leave the budgies with him for a week because if he forgets to close the cage door and 1 of my budgies get out the cage he will start attacking my other budgie and probably kill it they both have their own cages

If you are concerned the gentleman is not capable of looking after the budgies properly, I doubt you are going to enjoy your holiday much.

If you have any other options, I'd suggest you take the budgies to someone's home where you trust they will receive better care.

I tried a few other people who I kinda trusted but they don't live close so couldn't check them every few days and I was running out of time to find someone so we just asked my dads friend just hopefully they are fine next week

You could recommend that your dads friend leaves a note on each cage door that will remind him to close the door etc.

Yes it looks like the nice old gentleman may need a few reminders

I agree with Deborah that in doubt, it's better to play it safe. However as it is your only viable option, all you can do is manage it as best you can.

Memory loss in old age is usually gradual and slow. If your dad's friend functions well living on his own, he's most probably okay to look after your birds properly for a week.

Enjoy your holiday
