I have parrots. As far as I can tell, they are utterly useless.

They have other uses for it.

Cool! The gray is reputed to be amongst the best of "talkers", so watch your language in his/her proximity! :lol:

I've always enjoyed the Blue and Gold Macaw.

Are they like kids- pick up on a bad word at the first utterance, while ignoring all others?

I was thinking that they talk back and make a mess for you to clean up, like kids!

Everclear is the noted remedy that drives the kidneys to work harder. Caution is needed as they have a low tolerance for this systemic poison. Glycols have the same effect on humans damaging the renal organs to shutdown. There is a new medicinal available to vets, MK4 but it must be administered within 12 hours to be effective, otherwise survival is poor. treatment with ethanol is less effective because of its innate toxic effects.

I would have to have words with a person that does deliberate poisoning of a house animal, to institute a slow death. While difficult, the laws are clear both for control of an animal, and cruel removal.

The first issue is damage. Most people cannot come up with a damage claim, so they look stupid if pursued to court to explain their actions of removing a animal that urinates. Fox smell like skunk and mark their territory. I use vinegar, and diluted Clorox to destroy the smell. Ammonia is the base chemical you smell, so whatever knocks that out for you, Good luck.

I have cats (11) and have the piddle battle all the time. Some males are worse than others. All of mine are de-sexed.

I am a lover of animals, tis true, but a friends African Grey tried to sever a finger for me at our first meating, so I am not big on those birds.

Had a hawk grab a half sized kitten here, it returned with a head tilt from muscle damage on its neck. He did not live long, and became one of our lost souls to cat diseases. Right now, we have both a fox and coyote threat. Only one outside cat now.

Do you use the same vinegar Clorox on the feline territorial markers? Does it work well? And what ratio of vinegar to bleach?

Not mixed together. But a bit of dawn diluted 10-1 or so with a blurp of vinegar or Clorox to kill the ammonia. (Careful measure you see?) Outsdie, you can get a challenge spot going for dogs and cats by marking a tree base yourself. It will tend to draw the others as a territorial marker. (Drove my Great Dane nuts for days trying to figure that one out!) :mrgreen:
