My cat Dommie.

He thinks he is a dog.

He is also a back seat driver and giving me unsolicited advise where to go and how to drive.

Dommie will go into the ocean tide pool when I call out to him

Aww :o he's so pretty. Seeing those photos made me kinda sad because I used to have a little kitten called 'jesscat' and she looked exactly like him :(

Old Man Waffles and friends,

I think I am better known in the birdie forums. I thought what I done was done by all others. Allowing the birdie to fly about in the house.

And taking the birdie out on motorbikes.

Then I found not many others do that, even now. When I first started to write on what I was doing over 10 years ago, I was thrown out of a few forums for heresy and blasphemy.

Here is Tinkerbell when we were together in Taiwan.

A very rare shot of 3 of us below. My wife the camerawoman, myself and the birdie

30293297_9b1c8366b6_z.jpg

I had to leave her in Taiwan when I left that beautiful country in 2004. But I trained a friend and his family for a year before leaving Tinkerbell into their care. Since then, I flew into Taiwan almost on a yearly basis to spend 2-4 weeks with Tinkerbell.

More shots of her in this

Then we do have Riamfada, who was given into my care when we were in the Sultanate of Oman. Riamfada was a wild caught, and about 5 years old and bitey and fearful when she came to me.

In a year, she was flying freely in the open. Riamfada and Dommie were very good friends.

It was not just parrots that I seemed to be able to be friends with.

Birds that are classified as aviary birds seem to accept my friendship.

I have no idea just what is meant by aviary birds , so go google that yourself. Not that I think you get meaningful answers,

especially from those who defined aviary birds.

Such as Yingshiong below

80910841_7dd18427aa_z.jpg

Yingshiong above is a white rumped shama. A shama is a songbird. He was caught from the wild at about 3 years old. He was given into my charge at about 5 years old. He flew to me on cue within a month of coming to me. Breeders of shamas told me even their breed shamas , some they hand raised, never ever landed on them. They told me above was the first ever they seen of a male shama landing on a human.

5717933554_82ed7121a6_z.jpg

Libai is a Greater Greenleaf song bird. Caught from the wild and probably about 3 years old or so when he came to me.

Even wild caught and old birds can be so easily trained and bonded if you know how.

Here below is Jackie, a Greater Indian Hill Mynah.

Understanding them is the first and most important step that can be taken.

That is the most fundamental truth in looking after birds.

Birdies or beasties, this is the same.

I'm being terrorized by a cockatoo!

And all those birds are beautiful :)

I had a beautiful "pet" bird once, but he/she's gone now :cry:

I can never have him/her back.

I named him Tensho.

She's quite tame, and doesn't take off from me. Hopefully, she'll become a good pet.

There are a few other cats at my parents' house, where I'm staying. And I've told them to get the cats neutered!

To Mnemomix who is terrorised by his cockatoo, and Knight of Shadows and friends,

Regardless if you have birdies , or beasties, what I wrote here apply equally.

You might even get your kitty to walk with you in the ocean, or respond immediately to you when you called to them such as

Sieben coming to me

When I decided YS is to go back into his flightroom so Ivan the cat can be out, I just signal with my hand

and tell YS ' go back'. You can see this sequence here, where YS flew back to his flight room and into his cage at my

cue. You can see in other associated videos YS flying to me. But I think thats quite mundane as compared to him flying back to his cage.

Yingshiong flies back into cage

[media=]

The secret, if I can call that a secret, is understanding them and seeing their world from their eyeballs instead of your eyeballs.

Allowing yourself to be the trainee of your birdie and beasties instead of smugly thinking you are the trainer.

Do try to find the time to read

My father's pet lovebird, actually. The only picture I have of him.

He isn't around anymore.

He was very bitey... and didn't like going back into his cage.

My father also had another pet bird, but was killed by a civet cat.

There's also a cockatoo, but he's another story...

Here's my father's pet killer cockatoo.

I'm giving him scratches.

8226567339_ca37fd0708.jpg

I haven't been feeling too good lately... :(

And waiting for Snow to recover, he's at the vet's.

Just trying to take my mind off things.

Hello, all.

Here's another photo of one of the cats at my parents' house. I thought I'd get a photo of each of them.

Here's Das. I don't really like him, because it's very difficult to get close to him. He's the older brother of the white kitten here.

8232064918_03f3bd81ab.jpg

He's been here for months and he's still scared of people. Thankfully his sister became tame fairly quickly. She's a lot more friendly than her brother.

He's slowly getting slightly more tame, though, but at a very slow rate. It's still a long way until he's as tame as his sister, as far as I can tell.

Anyway, he isn't a cat that I like very much, not much to say about him...

Any suggestions?

He comes when there's food, but only when the other cats are around.

This is his sister, I can't help posting her pictures because she's just too cute.

8232116802_95b5c31b46.jpg

Here, she's courageously exploring the dense Malaysian jungle. Where will her next adventure take place?

Whoever said cats were evil needs their head examining.

They might be timid,breed like rabbits and are generally flea-ridden.

Mind you that's down to nurture than nature.

However they are much cuter than the more approachable dogs.

One picture of a muggy is worth a thousand of a dog.

She's nice. I'm not too keen on dogs, though.

Maya was a name suggestion for my new kitten.

Kira again, if you like kittens :)

8274455035_5f77cc2076.jpg

She's a kitten at my parents' house that was found. She was skinny and her mother was nowhere in sight for two days. So I took her in, and am taking care of her until she grows up.

She's going to grow into a fine cat.

She's been to the vet's. The vet guessed she's about a month old.

She likes sleeping on my lap and likes attention.
