    The Adventures of Kiki the Kakariki! (Pics Update Aug 4!)

    Well Kiki just gets herself into the weirdest places...

    The other day the heat register...

    So I decided to do a little log of all of her adventures!

    Tonight Kiki disappeared and I could hear ruffeling, SO I took a look around and what do I see! Kiki playing!









    She likes anywhere she can hide! Which I have learned can be dangerous! When she is out we shuffle our feet everywhere, cause you never know where she is hiding...

    Stay tuned for her next adventure! lol...

    Oh Kiki you make me laugh!



    A Previous Adventure from June 2 2008!!:



    I let her run around to kill some energy at night and tonight I could hear something... tick tick tick then it would stop and start again... It took me 10 minutes to figure it out and when I did a crapped my pants...





    Yep you guessed it, KIKI got into the heater... it wasnt on thank god, but none the less, I was cleaning it yesterday and I guess she seen me... She is fine but I wasnt I had a heart attack...I seriously thought you were kidding Shaz when you said she would be into everything...

    My lord... She is more of a handful then all 9 of my tiels... Oy what did I get myself into...

    Omg, this is a killer thread. Hey, you should put a rehash post in this thread about the register. So it's all together. Like say "let us review lololol" or something, and then put the pictures and story in. I'd love it to be all together to show friends.

    Haha she sure is a female!!!

    I will recap and put it all into one thread tonight, im at work, 'working' lol.

    I have no idea if they like to hide, I guess she does! I would love to know more about her but there isnt alot of info on pet kakarikis out there.

    Re: The Adventures of Kiki the Kakariki!

    For those interested in K's, I found some little tidbits on YouTube:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-eiUKp-w-U -- To hear a talking voice. Click on the users other videos as they've taken a bunch of movies of Cricket.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YLpK2sL2gcs

    They must be peaceful, because I've run into lots of movies that have them best friends or even living with everything from a parrotlet to a canary. And so active, omg. They make me twitch! LOL. They're like a warbler is to the US wild song birds ... not still for a single second. They do a lot of busy nothings. Like exploring, wandering, looking at things. I'd like to see more movies up of how they interact with humans and how they play. I found one video of one flitting all over some guy but it was taken with a phone camera and it's barely visable. Maybe you could make Kiki a YT account, or someone else could make their Kaki one. lol. Start making a fan site. That would be funny, and it looks like it's really needed.

    Looks like an ordinary parrot with a good dose of curiosity, and the speed settings have been set from 'medium' to 'super fast'. I could not believe how fast they are when I saw those videos!

    Re: The Adventures of Kiki the Kakariki!

    SO miss Kiki's adventure today was the book case. And I didnt realize how dirty it was until I took the pictures, so that will be cleaned this weekend.







    Yeah so that is being cleaned this weekend... but until then we blocked her out of there...

    And some one mentioned about how quick they move... here is a video of kiki on the floor.

    Re: The Adventures of Kiki the Kakariki! (Pics Update june 4!)

    Oh my gosh, like I said "electric". I'd chalk them up to being one of the more interesting pet birds I've ever seen. Not to mention one of the most beautiful.

    Puh-puh-puh lease add the first photos and story to this too!

    Yeah she Hops EVERYWHERE unless she is climbing something.... then she is hanging up side down.

    She was hand raised but she isnt big into cuddling and stepping up, she is VERY independent, if you havent noticed yet. lol. She wont step up because she just wants to go but if you can catch her she will let you cuddle and scratch her for a couple minutes - no struggling she will lay in your hand - kinda like Kito (brandons) Lovie Oliver, if you have seen the picture - then she will leave and hop away when she has had enough. She is a little skittish though. but she is getting much better now!

    That exactly what i said when I first seen her hop, I said 'ha ha she like a little feathered bunny!' I bet Shaz's Wally hops too though, at least I hope so...

    The mess isnt just her's! on top of the book case there is a wood hut for the birds to play with and chew up, up until last night we thought they didnt ever touch it... someone is obviously chewing it up!

    She is so funny to watch... she is just go go go... all the time.

    Cheryl, I think Kiki and Skittles could A) Be twins and B) are secretly related.

    ADORABLE photos and I definitely know what you mean with getting into EVERYTHING!
