Though creatures living in this Earth are diverse, you cannot deny the fact that there are separate rules between preys and predators. Despite their being able to exist side by side in nature and in a particular kind of environment, they still have certain traits that allow them to survive in competition with each other.
For example, predators highly depend on their preys for their source of food. On the other hand, the preys are given some characteristics that allow them to protect themselves better from these predators. Even so, when an intelligent being of nature goes into the picture, that is the human being, for sure, the natural cycle of things will be perturbed in more ways than one.
The same scenario is expected when you will be taking care of different pets all under the same roof with you. One example will be buying parrots to live together with your cats and dogs. Despite your many efforts of grooming your fur pets to ensure that they can be as gentle as they can ever be, they easily become wild when they see any prey right in front of them, most especially living with them. This wild behavior sometimes becomes too uncontrolled that they could end up eating or killing your newly bought bird.
For sure, you have seen your dogs go chasing around some birds on your garden thinking that they can catch them. In addition, you might have also caught glimpses with your cat hunting on the trees in your garden for some birds. Just thinking of these two things, have you ever wondered what it would be like to bring into your home two creatures that are exactly opposite in nature? How can your birds and other pets live in harmony?
Here are a few tips that you can apply to keep both your winged and furry pets together.
Ensure to keep your pets in regular contact. Do not think for a fact that it would be a good idea to separate your pet birds and your dogs or cats wholly in your home just so you can prevent the occurrences of having your pet bird attacked. This is wrong. Since pet birds love to be talked to on a daily basis, your cat or dog will develop a more positive attitude towards them if they are able to see your pet bird daily. Nevertheless, this needs a lot of practice. And such practice could involve maintaining a healthy distance at first between the both of them. You can still keep your pet birds on a durable cage that you can hung securely in one area of your home. Be sure to get a cage that is strong and just big enough for bigger pets such as your cats or dogs to attack them.
Guarantee the security of your pet birds. Aside from putting your birds in cage that is big and durable, you also make to make sure to really place them in an area in your home that would be challenging to attack. Do not forget to ensure to hang them securely to prevent it from being knocked down and falling down.
Do not leave multiple pets together unattended. Never forget the laws of nature among opposite natured pets. There are times that your pet bird could become easily annoyed by your cat or dog. At the same time, your cat or dog could end up attacking your pet bird if they find it reasonable no matter how they have acted friendly to them in the past.
