Parrot Brushing His Beak

Comments (4)

By Michael Sazhin

Wednesday February 1st, 2012

I heard that February is National Pet Dental Health Month so I bought a toothbrush for Kili and Truman to brush their beaks with. I knew that Kili wouldn't care but that Truman would go bonkers for it. I took Truman to the pharmacy with me and picked out the cheapest/simplest toothbrush they had. Truman was already wide eyed over the selection so you can only imagine how he felt when he could get his beak on one!

I didn't even have to open the package, Truman lost no time figuring out this toy within a toy! With exquisite dexterity, Truman eagerly chewed the package open and got his prized toothbrush out. I showed Truman how to brush his beak but he grabbed the toothbrush away from me to do it his own way. He felt the bristles with his tongue and chewed the toothbrush from all sides. This must be the greatest one dollar parrot toy he has ever played with!

That is so cute. I have a fetish about my toothbrushes so I get a new one every month. I put the old ones in the dishwasher and reuse them for scrubby jobs. I gave Myrtle one right out of the dishwasher and she played with it all day.
