I just found the best new cleaning assistant, it is called an Eye Vac Pet, it's about 15 inches tall and 10 inches wide. I plugged it in the bird area and when ever I see a new bunch of feather or mess I just sweep it towards the motion detected Eye Vac and it sucks it right up. No more getting the vacuum out 5 times a day. Wish I found this sooner, The birds are not even afraid of it. Infact when Sid sees me turn it on he says' Ohhhhh'. Too funny.
