    Those big parrots have a bite like a can opener. Those cats are better off trained by voice command than by the beak of doom.

    Those cats must be well-fed if they haven’t eaten the bird yet.

      Beak Of Dooooom. Cockatoos have (per google) a mere 500 to 700 psi of force in those beaks (Macaws clock in at 500 to 2000 psi – still google). We had a smaller macaw that trained our kittens to Respect The Birdies. We got him a home with someone who was already deaf (!) and thrilled to get the bird but the kittens were already trained. When we received a temporary cockatiel, a winter stray that someone found, the kitten we kept was a full grown cat. He saw the new addition in the temporary bird room, froze, backed up and made himself look really small, then turned around and ran. He would not enter the room again until he was sure that bird was gone. Bonus, we didn’t need to get a safety cage for a bird that we had for three days.
      Beak of doom, it works.

    After touring a bird rescue that had plenty of exactly this kind of bird, and being informed that the one that seemed so friendly and welcoming would rip your face off, the woman who runs the place explained just why any of the big birds are terrible pets. She felt it was her penance for having once been a bird breeder. Cockatoos can be super friendly and easy to train, and then they reach sexual maturity and then bloody hell, with missing chunks of your flesh, breaks out.

  6. I have a friend that has a green wing macaw. He has a series of scars down his arm where the bird decided he needed more training….

    I wish one of those cats would have said, “Polly want a cracker?”
