    @irene bird: personality at 1/500 the weight of a cat. No allergies, completely odorless. Flies around. Affectionate and likes scritches. Hangs out on shoulder alternating between purring and chirping. Costs 2 days of cat food to feed a bird for a year. Lives up to 20+ years. They have a completely different body language so it takes time to understand them.

    cat: processes precious bird into feathered turd

    @irene hmm, cats and dogs are natural for us to read right? It’s obvious when a cat is threatening you.

    I didn’t get into birds till couple years ago, and it took me a while to learn their body language. It’s wasn’t obvious to me whether a bird is being playful or in attack mode.

    For example, cats/dogs splay out exposing their bellies when they want to play fight. Birds take a upright stance and open their mouths (vs low head position, body sprung in strike mode).

    Huge birds still scare me, like hyacinth macaws. They’re literally the size of my torso, and can bend steel bars. I met an owner playing with one, and it was making the scariest noises and what seemed to me to be aggressive beaking. I asked him how he could tell if the macaw was being playful. Answer: macaw hasn’t crushed his arms off.

    Part of the reason why it’s so hard to read them: we don’t get any facial expression cues or even basic pupil cues.

    @toriyuno cats aren't natural to read at all. Dogs are just simple minded creatures overall. Cats are more complex in general. I feel like interacting with little human with cats. But with dogs it feels like a silly algorithm in a meat bag.

    Cats don't actually have facial expressions as well. Just the most basic: calm, aggresive (cheeks pulled up, whiskers standing, showing teeth).

    @toriyuno @irene My guess would be that cats and dogs are considered fairly easy to read because you kind of learn it as you grow up. You know, when happy cats purr and dogs wag their tail, when upset or scared cats hiss while dogs might tuck their tail between their legs and keep their head low.

    In the meantime you don't learn too much about how to read birds unless you happen to grow up with them.

    Sidenote; As someone who's never owned a bird, don't they poop everywhere? Or do you just kind of gets used to it? (Like getting peed on by rats...)

    @Navigatr they do poop.
  • 0
    @irene Well, I know that they poop, obviously. :P I just had the impression that you'd have bird poop all over the place. Like I said, I've never had birds myself.

    @Navigatr they do poop everywhere. I've had parakeets too. 😑

    @irene They're so damn cute though.

    @Navigatr cats are cuter for me. 🙃

    @irene I'm unbiased, I find almost all animals cute. :P I've had cats most of my life, currently live with just one.

    She woke me up rudely this morning, coming into the bedroom and screaming at me because hubby was in the shower. She's got some sort of issue with us showering. I don't know if she thinks we're drowning ourselves or something.

    @Navigatr they poop in certain places. Bigger parrots are smart enough to not poop on you. Conures can be trained to fly to a trash can, poop, and fly back. Some potty train themselves.

    Parakeet poop are little dots, and they dry fast, like tiny dippin dots. Absolutely no odor at all.

    Cats will completely ruin a room with their smell. Even replacing the flooring isn’t enough. I don’t know if it’s their urine or musk glands, it’s very permanent. I’m pretty sensitive to odors, and I can pick out cat people as they pass by.

    @Navigatr they poop like a smol bean every hour or so but they won't poop while they sleep. Which is the reason a bird takes a huge (compared to their sizing) dump when they wake up.

    @melezorus34 "smol bean" 😆

    @toriyuno try reading a snakes body language ;-). Most of the time it was a "touch them in the middle of the body and watch their reaction" type of thing.
  • 2
    @toriyuno I'll never argue with that cats are smelly, there's a reason that the term "nuclear cat ass" has become a thing at home.

    @Navigatr does it have any relation to this?

    @Navigatr but they aren't that smelly. Not like ferrets at least.
  • 0
    @ftyross Unfortunately not. :P Our cat is just a weapon of mass destruction.

    @irene I find ferrets and cats to be on par in terms of odor. You're just used to their scent nee-san
