So I'm sitting here, looking at knitted shark covers for beer cans of all things...

Sister's parrot: squawk
Me: ...
Sister's parrot: squawk
Me: ...
Sister's parrot: squawk

Me: So who's pinching your butt?!?

Sister's parrot immediately shoots back in the same tone of voice I just used, "Get out of here!"

LOL!

Uhm..maybe you had to be there.

One of the vendors here has a pet parrot that she adopted from a neglectful family.

The parrot says the most disturbing shit.

It screams, a lot. It also says things like "No please" and "don't want to!" I've heard recordings, it's something out of a horror movie.

She actually ended up calling social services to make sure things were legit and this kid was OK.

This parrot, in addition to saying: "Give me a kiss!" with a loud smooching sound is fond of repertoire of negativity: "Stop it! Shut up! Aaaant don't do it! Be quiet!" and occasionally "No no no!" oh and then there's the maniacal laughter and mimicking coughing and sneezing.

Apparently I got really sick when I was just a little too young to be speaking while conscious. However I sleep-spoke perfect English just for the one night. Most of what I said was things like "No" "Stop" and every time mom would try to tell this story she'd trail off with a slightly haunted look in lieu of going into more detail.

Just one of the (surprisingly plentiful) ways I freaked out my parents while growing up.

I don't know why I needed to share this in the pet thread. LOOK, THEY'RE CUDDLING:

I love this guy, he's he sweetest in the world.

But he's so fuzzy.

As a result of the changing seasons and me not having enough money for the groomer, my entire house is covered in golden fuzz.

Every day I sweep, I vacuum (corners, couches, mat AND dog), I use tape to unstick dog hair from my pants, I have every kind of hair removing brush, he gets weekly baths and almost-daily brushings.

And still... the damn golden fuzz... it's EVERYWHERE

What are your dog fuzz management tactics?

Own a short-haired breed. Razz
Put bed sheets down on the furniture, wash them regularly. Also good for car seats (which I find extremely difficult to clean with just a vacuum).
I'm betting that just one grooming session will help a lot, even if you can't afford regular trips.

Probably the only sane option.

As long as you don't mind creating an environment where your dog suddenly develops Romulan-like cloaking abilities.
