The Hardest Bite To Date!

Nani has bit me in the past for various reasons and even drawn blood once or twice but today's bite takes the cake! The only consolation is that the bite wasn't meant for me.

You see, she hates the cat. When I say hate I mean it's all out WAR. The cat is deathly afraid of Nani (and Piper but he seems to know that Nani is the one that means business). Well tonight when I got home I let the birds out and was playing with them on the living room floor. The cat wanted my attention too but didn't dare get too close. Since Nani was preoccupied with a toy I called the cat over for a scratch (my bad). As I was petting the cat Nani ran over and attacked him. Unfortunately for me what she latched onto was my hand! As soon as I lifted my hand it Was like she realised it was me and let go. But her lower mandible dug in so far it will not stop bleeding! It hurts SO BAD. I wasn't upset with her because I know she didn't mean to get me but wow! In a weird way I see her former bites as not so bad knowing now that she could have done far more damage if she really wanted to.

I would never suggest you get rid of your cat. Instead, I suggest you send Nani to me. Problem solved!!!

It's pretty much completely healed now, but is still sore (like bruised) to touch. The cate is back in his home now so Nani has no one to murder...for now.

I had a Timineh African Grey, Sisco who was just the the sweetest. Sometimes even with your best parrots something tells them to bite. We gave her the best bird food, the best bird toys and he spent a lot of time out of his cage but every once in a while: CHOMP. I think his top and bottom beaks would meet in the middle somewhere under my skin. It would hurt like ***** but after a little cursing I would forgive him.
