Every night I spot clean Chy's cage but then comes the big clean. I take out all the toys and perches to scrub them and climb in the cage to thoroughly clean everywhere. This time I replaced a soft perch with a new one. Everything was put back in the original places.
Since I did the big cage clean this morning, I had to physically put her in the cage so that I could clean the house. Chyloe has been huddled at the bottom of the cage afraid of those parrot-eating perches and toys above her. We have both tried to lure her up to a perch by offering her favourite treats but no deal. It is like this every time I do a big clean.
If she acts true to form, she will wait until I cover her tonight then she will climb up onto the new soft perch to sleep. It is not scary in the dark.
