I know this is an older thread, but need to reply in case anyone else has this situation or Loveygirl is still around. Not trying to be smart, just save someone possible heartache. Never,never, never let cats get too close to pet birds. They may be the best of friends, but if the cat even accidentaly scratches the bird, it could die Very quickly! Cats have bacteria under their claws that is/can be deadly to birds. Especially with Parakeets, they are so small and their metabolism so fast. that the bacteria acts real fast.
Birds imported from the wild are often frightened and high-strung, and both hand-raised and wild-caught birds often become neurotic, pulling out feathers and mutilating themselves, sometimes to the point of death. When ready to breed, many species naturally pluck some feathers to prepare for nest-building and egg-sitting, but when humans interfere with their natural behaviors and disrupt biological and instinctual cycles by imprisoning birds, plucking becomes a destructive compulsion. Plucking can also be caused by physical problems, such as malnutrition or allergies.
