Jenday Conure Weedohn

Weedohn is my four year old Jenday conure who honestly believes the world revolves around her. She is truly fearless, and she'll do anything to get what she wants. She's a very sweet bird and smarter than any other pet I've ever owned.


Weedohn picks victims to take out her anger on sometimes. Her favourite is my 15lb 3 year old black and white male cat Pikun. Whenever my boyfriend and I are carrying a fresh load of clean laundry into the bedroom to fold and put away, that is when Weedohn decides it is time to plan another Pikun attack. She jumps on top of the clean pile of laundry, and puffs herself up, and starts doing a freaky little dance meant to scare Pikun. She has special things to say whenever this happens too. "Fridick, pridict, fridick, pridick..." and she just keeps on repeating herself. Once she gets to the bed, if Pikun is actually there and she's feeling confident, she'll run up to him squawking and then try to bite his face, feet, or tail. Many a time, she'll chase him right off the bed and then start laughing. Weedohn finds herself VERY amusing which just makes it even funnier to watch her at work.

Weedohn also has days when she's all talk or squawk as you may have it. On these days, once she's put down on the bed with the laundry, she'll be right in front of Pikun, look at me like a scared little girl, and then run over to me and climb up onto my shirt. That is when I ask her "Oh, we're not feeling like a tough girl today? What happened to attacking your brother? Huh?" She obviously doesn't find my line of questioning entertaining, because then she doesn't laugh. :)

Supervised Play

Thank you Tracie. We supervise our monsters very closely around here since we've got a lot of big personalities running around. Weedohn knows how to inflict injuries on the cat, so we make sure that everyone involved is safe and sound. Both Pikun and Weedohn are also well aware that they'll be in BIG trouble if they hurt each other. They know that we've got "playing regulations" in place. :)

Jenday bossing cat
by: Tracie

You have a beautiful bird! Thanks for sharing so many pictures. :-)

I really must warn you, that some day your cat may accidentally kill your bird. Your bird may startle the cat when it is sleeping or not paying attention and it's natural response is to attack. Your bird has hollow bones that break easily and the saliva of your cat is lethal to birds.

As cute as it may seem, it is best that you keep your cat in another room when your bird is out.
