We currently own 2 dogs (1 small 1 medium), a siamese cat, a ferret, and a Nanday Conure.
Our Nanday (PITA) is in love with our cat. He purrs, meows, and grooms her. Unfortunately, our cat is 18 years old, and PITA is only 7 years old. We were concerned that when our cat (Molly) died, PITA would be despondent.
To make a long story short, yesterday, we brought home a beautiful yellow sided green cheek (as yet to be named). We have 2 separate cages for them, but would like to eventually move the 2 birds together.
So, the question is...what is the best way to slowly introduce the 2 of them, and hopefully start the bonding process? PITA is a big boy (compared to the green cheek)and obviously much louder, and can be kind of a bully. So we want to make sure that their introduction is nice and slow.
