    I have all those same questions, did any one ever answer you on another site?

    We care for and love many wild birds in our garden as well as 2 roaming indoor/outdoor cats and 1 lab who all cohabitat and get along. How we determine the cats and dogs wont stress the bird? Is the cage type/hieght as important as I think? As small parrot wants to be out of the cage so will that be an issue?

    We care for and love many wild birds in our garden as well as 2 roaming indoor/outdoor cats and 3 long hair chihuahuas who all cohabitat and get along. I had paraketts as a child and have always dreamed of a small parrot. How we determine the cats and dogs wont stress the bird? Is the cage type/hieght as important as I think? As small parrot wants to be out of the cage so will that be an issue? Im also able to have an outdoor cage, will this a good thing with so many wild bird? Appreciate any advice for a southern Ca birder.
