Suction Cup Plant Hanger as a Pet Bird Perch.

A few years ago I was looking for a way to put a perch in my shower so my parrotlet could hang out when I was in there. The pet shop perches that had suction cups to stick to smooth surfaces were expensive and huge. I eventually found plant hangers with suction cups that worked perfect!

Birds: My Parrotlet!

Last updated September 12, 2008. More pictures added.

I am owned by a parrotet (and cats). His name is Bucky. If you are unfamiliar with parrotlets you are missing out. Generally I do not recommend birds to most people because they are deceptively high maintenance and the novelty can wear off fast. Having said that, if you are wanting a parrot type bird but cannot have a large one and can have the guy out for at least an hour (or more!) a day, then you may want to study up on parrotlest. They give you much of what a large parrot gives you but in a small package and they are a little more forgiving. You will not have the noise and destruction that goes along with large birds. They are not a bird to keep in a cage like a canary and watch, which unfortunately that often happens because of their size or they are not given the time needed to bond (get a well handled young one from a breeder). Get them out like the parrot they are and have fun!
