Haha, those two are always up to something! My Khaleesi also tries to interrupt me when I'm tying my shoelaces right before taking the dog out for his walk. He lands on my shoe (the one I'm currently working on) and goes straight for the laces.
LOL!!! Your sneakers must not be too smelly for them to be all over it like this. My tiels have also destroyed of few of my shoelaces so this is why their cage is placed to the top rack, which does discourage them from foraging around for things on the floor.
It's true, Randy. When I am about to go to work, I sit on the floor and put my sneakers on. Usually, when they notice, they start running towards me and climbing on my legs, LOL. I swear, those birds are smart.
They are so funny they must be missing their mummy, Budget likes to play with Rob's laces as well ,he lands on the shoe then tries to pull them and he jumps up and down with them they are all so funny aren't they
