Parrots On Board

When most people think of having a pet while living aboard, they usually think of cats and dogs, rarely anything else. We have a nine year old parrot name Sammy who has successfully made the transition from a house to an apartment to a sailboat.

The hardest part of making the boat parrot ready was finding a place to mount her cage. Since she spends very little time in it, I decided on a hamster cage mounted on the salon table. I tied it up in such a way that it would hold still when we heel over. 

This was well and fine, but Maddie is not fond of the mess Sammy makes when she eats. We are now in the process of finding a new place to mount Sammy's cage, but space on a sailboat is limited, so the search for the right spot is on!
