Rainbow Exotics, a whole sale bird breeder for Petsmart has confirmed cases of psittacosis. This sign is in Ohio, but they supply the entire US.

If you have purchased a bird from Petsmart please bring them to a vet. Psittacosis is a highly contagious zoonotic disease that can kill your bird and create flu-like symptoms in humans. It is treatable with antibiotics for your birds if caught early. It is generally not serious in people, although if left untreated it can be.

If you have bought toys or cages from Petsmart please disinfect them before giving them to your birds! Or return them. Psittacosis can live in feather dust and droppings for months.

Please share. And consider adopting your next bird from a rescue.

Not enough of you reblogged this. Please, signal boost!

He perks up at the sound of her voice. “Fae, sweetheart, s’been a long time!”

"And you do a rather good job at it," he says, back to his rather chipper mood. Looks like his moment of being down didn’t last at all. But, then again, his dour moods never stick around, anyway. "Y’never met Dainan? He’s such a sweetheart! I go huntin’ with him. I’m a falconist by nature, and I’ve trained him to do so much. I should let’cha try throwin’ stuff for him to retrieve. He loves playin’ fetch, heh."

"That’s darling!" She giggled at the thought of a bird of prey playing fetch. "You know I bet my boston terrier Bingley and him will get along. He loves birds, he plays with my friends murder. I actually saw the crows carrying him and flying off with him once."

"It’s good for exercise," he explained. "That, and it helps train him. He thinks it’s a target, somethin’ fleeing. Wot I do is I take his hood off seconds before I throw, and he hunts it down. It’s bloody magnificent to see him spread his wings and take off!"

He tries to imagine a dog and a hawk getting along. It could work. Dainan looked intimidating and rather harsh, but he really wasn’t. He was a softie. 

"Could very well work," he concluded. "I could s—-wait, wot? They flew off with him?"

Good. And I hope it bloody well stays that way. The last thing I want to hear is that you’ve gone and bothered her again.

Ah, so he’s one of those kind, eh? Hopin’ the fiancée knows at least. If not, eesh. I can’t imagine wot that’ll be like.

[He scrunches his nose, listening as she continues on. Her father? Damn. Let’s hope he’s not as crazy as she was. That’s the last thing he needed, to have a new person running around causing chaos]

…It does constitute as gettin’ better. Let’s hope the count drops to zero and stays like that. Forever.

Not for a lack of trying. She has friends now, and one of them is not even remotely close to human. He’s like a hybrid, except less animal and more walking cesspool of disease.

*Quite disgusting, actually. Eve has not the foggiest idea what Sheila sees in the thing she refers to as her brother.*

That would be boring. I have to make a living somehow, tu sais. You think singing rakes in enough dough to pay the bills? Hardly.

A hybrid…? Huh. Wot kind? And were they made be an experiment gone wrong or somethin’? Poor bloke. He sounds… sickly. But, hey, who am I to judge. Is he at least a’right? Or is he suffering?

Feh, these days it’s hard to actually find a job that pays good. Well, this job does, but there’s always the risk of a faulty Respawn or some fuckin’ RED quack choppin’ you up to pieces and using you as some fucked up walkin’ experiment.

[Ooooh, bitterness. It was so there]

"Half the man I am, eh? Is that flattery I sense?" He playfully flexes, jovial and lighthearted in everything he did. He was a really cheery man when you got down to it, a real card. He loved to make others laugh. "Actually, that’s not a bad idea. Have yeh ever met Dainan properly? He’s such a good boy."

"hey I’m a woman..flattering men is part of my job." She gave him a sly smile and chuckled. She had missed talking to Dom. She had missed Dom period. She wouldn’t admit it at the moment, but it felt really nice to have him back. "I don’t think I have actually, why don’t you bring the whole gang and we’ll have a good time." 

"And you do a rather good job at it," he says, back to his rather chipper mood. Looks like his moment of being down didn’t last at all. But, then again, his dour moods never stick around, anyway.

Bah. Y’know, people can act a certain way just to avoid shit in life, yeah? Keep people from questionin’ what you’re thinkin’ of, what you’re doing. There’s always more than meets the eye ‘round here.

[He gives her a look as if to say, 'you did what?']

Yeah, back to your ol’ tricks again. Shit, I bet’cha did murder, or at least hurt someone. Who did you get this time?

I hope by “gettin’ better” you mean you’re not goin’ to hurt people anymore, but I know that’s too way far there in wishin’.

Actually, I am sure you will be pleased to know I haven’t tormented Sheila since she defected from Coldfront. That was over a year ago.

Jean, my cousin, finally married his insufferable fiancée. They have a son now. Mind you, his ball and chain have not stopped his…. extramarital affairs.

*She smiles wide.* Interpret that how you will.

And my father! Finally released from prison after twenty-one years! Imagine that.

So, yes, my body count has been significantly lower this past year.
That constitutes as getting better, does it not.

Good. And I hope it bloody well stays that way. The last thing I want to hear is that you’ve gone and bothered her again.

Good to see you back. It's been awful quiet around here lately.

Asked by pocketdoktor

pocketdoktor:

"Ha, you actually enjoy me bein’ back? I’d imagine a lot of people would have enjoyed the peace and quiet. Y’know, not havin’ Dainan squawkin’ when I take him out to hunt." He beams at his words, though. He’s happy to hear that people actually enjoy having him around. "Missed you too, Doc. You’re one of the good ones on RED these days. Unlike that quack."

The compliment made him smile, just a bit, through the tired look on his face.
"Haven’t heard from zat ‘quack’ in a while zough… funny enough, I saw a picture zat reminded me of him just last night. Would you like to see?"

"Heh, this outta be good." He nods, though. He’s curious. He knows Alexei likes the ‘quack’ in question, and Alexei was a friend of his, but… hell, Aldous was a fucking nutcase.

You typically are sarcastic with what you do and say. That, or downright sadistic. But, yeh know.

Back from the dead? Hardly. Didn’t die, just had to find myself. Go on a lit’l soul searchin’ per say. Not my time yet. But wot about you, huh? Still hanging in there?

You? An existential crisis? Birds and Tim Tams not cutting it for you anymore?

*Wrinkles her nose* More or less. Haven’t murdered anyone recently, although some people would beg to differ.

Getting better.

I was being sarcastic.

Regardless, I am surprised to see you have returned from the dead.

Back from the dead? Hardly. Didn’t die, just had to find myself. Went on a lit’l soul searchin’ hiking trip, per say. Not my time yet. But wot about you, huh? Still hanging in there?
