    Budgerigars, also commonly known as budgies, are among one of the most popular, well-known, and most homed parrots in the world.

There exist many different kinds of parakeets, some of them big, and some of them small—like the budgie.

    Black Cats

    Odds are you've seen at least one black cat in your life, but was that cat fully black? A lot of the "black" cats you see today have white spots or patches on their fur, usually the chest or stomach. Why is that? To explain we are going to have to take a small trip back in time.

    Why Not Get a Bird

    Why Not Get a Bird

    My favorite podcast is playing as I clean my room, a comedy podcast that distracts me from the endless mess I’m trying to work my way through. Above me, a cockatiel is happily chirping and tossing empty seed casings at me. It’s time for me to take a break, so I stop the podcast and go next door to a room currently functioning as Loud Bird Prison.

    Wounds and Their Treatment

    Wounds and Their Treatment

    Wounds, scratches, lacerations, etc. are probably the most common form of injury in horses. They are extremely lively animals, they can be inquisitive, which along with their flight or fight response and the dominance hierarchy within the herd, which can make them very accident prone. So owners and carers cannot hope to get away without some form of injury at some time.

    My First Cat

    My First Cat

    I remember getting my first cat when I was about four or five years old. I don't remember where my mom got it, or if someone gave it to her, but I was happy to have a pet I could play with; we already had at least one dog, but I don't remember ever playing with them even though one would beg for food during meals in our tiny kitchen; my mom or anyone else would throw scraps of tortilla or even a whole tortilla out the kitchen for the dog(s) to go eat outside. We didn't know to treat pets the way people do in the United States.
