Thomas: I was in Mexico City during the 2 8.0 earthquakes in 1985, my 6 Amazon parrots would start flapping around in their cages about a minute before the severe shaking happened. Hope everyone is okay! Jul 6, 2019 9:45:04 GMT -7

Adele: I'm in Los Angeles and we're just fine. It didn't affect us at all. My neighbor's pool was splashing around quite a bit. But in general, it was really minor here. Jul 7, 2019 8:40:19 GMT -7 *

beakertrout: Besides his flapping around, I knew it was an earthquake when I walked into the kitchen and my hanging pots & pans were swinging away, but not clanging against each other. Had they been clanging, I would have been under a table. Jul 7, 2019 9:28:51 GMT -7

susan: I have never been apart from Sid in all 13 years. If I had family or someone I really trusted it might be different, but not worth the risk. He is my best friend. :) Jul 10, 2019 14:51:15 GMT -7

Adele: Wow, I've taken several trips, including a 6-month stint in Brazil. The long stint was really difficult, but Manzi was with a trusted friend and they took very good care of him. Jul 11, 2019 19:06:25 GMT -7

Thomas: I was away from Sheeba for 4 days 2 years ago(vacation) and I missed her terribly. She stays with her avian vet, in a place with a lot of other birds. She is difficult and I don't want friends or family trying to take care of her. Jul 11, 2019 20:05:07 GMT -7

Haz: Max would get mad when we went on vacation. It would take days for him to love me again. Chyloe always loves me no matter how long I am away. Jul 13, 2019 12:22:42 GMT -7

chris: We typically take Ruby with us on vacation, usually just to the beach somewhere in Florida. She won't say a word, not even a whistle. I guess she's just not comfortable with the strange surroundings. She eats okay and enjoys the car ride but is very quiet. Jul 16, 2019 6:25:10 GMT -7

Haz: We take Chylo on picnics. She entertains everyone around. Jul 16, 2019 13:55:15 GMT -7
