I’m sure we could go on about the results of this study for days, but I’d be interested in a different kind of study: how happy are people with pets versus people without pets, and does it vary with type of pet? I can tell you one thing for sure; bird owners are probably the happiest people around. And why not? We’re so cheerful and friendly. How can you be sad with feathered companions to brighten your day? We’re intelligent, too. Parrots have the intelligence of a 2-5 year old child, so we can learn fast and keep you on your toes in ways that canine and feline companions can’t. Table scraps? Bah! We’ll eat it off your plate, thank you very much! We always have the “what am I up to now?” game going, and anything can be a toy. Absolutely anything …
Well, our online friends seem happy enough anyway. Mommy’s all over the Internet with her writing, and she says that the friends that Zack and I are happier than all the rest. It’s not scientific, but it’s enough to convince me that we’re a cheerful bunch. Why shouldn’t we be? We’re birds. Birds are great. Birds make everything better because we’re awesome. I do believe that birds are the keys to happiness!
That’s all today. Keep smiling my fine friends, and have a great rest of the week!
