Hi, everyone! I was looking around for new cage ideas for Sammy as his Ferplast Ibiza Open cage has a few spots where the white coating is wearing off (and with his recent heavy metals poisoning we don't want to take any chances).
I ordered it on the spot because I've heard such great things about Montana cages! Not only was it on special, but Zooplus.es has a week long no-IVA (tax) offer, so I scored this awesome cage for less than 120€!
Sammy is going to have such an amazing time spreading his wings in his new pad!
Now... how do you go about switching a budgie to a new home?
Sammy's new cage was delivered this evening. After hauling 20kg up to our flat (whew!) my husband and I survived one of the biggest challenged faced by newlyweds - having to read the instruction manual and assemble something. We had already faced an Ikea shoe wardrobe, so I thought it would be no big deal to assemble a bird cage.
It was pretty easy, and Sammy was very curious! But our schnauzer Watson started crying when he saw it put together. ("Seriously, Mom. You buy Sammy a whole new home and all I got was this silly rubber ball?!")
Sammy's now in his new cage with new toys and lots of food and water. He's a bit gun-shy, but I'm sure he'll be right at home by tomorrow. Pictures to follow...
