Don't Use Cloth Bird Carriers With Zippers on Both Ends
(Santa Clara, CA)
This is just a warning to people who use the cloth bird carriers with zippers on both ends. They are a nice, light cage especially when taking your bird to the vet. I loved mine until I was taking my lovebird to the vet and halfway to the car the zipper broke and the end of the cage was wide open. I almost had a heart attack.
I pressed the open end next to my chest which was hard to do as there were still gaps where my bird could get out. Somehow I made it back into the hallway of my apartment with my beloved love bird still inside. Zippers are not safe and can give way at any moment. I don't want anyone else to go through what I went through. It still upsets me when I think about almost losing my beloved little bird and watching him fly away.
