Contractors dismantle porch to rescue trapped rabbit

Jim and Brian are construction contractors with big hearts for animals. When they were hired for a job at a house near Peterborough, Ontario, they arrived to begin the extension of a porch. What they didn't expect is that they would discover something under the existing section of porch. They could hear a scratching noise and the squeal of a frantic animal. Jim and Brian removed the deck to find an old cold cellar beneath that had been constructed many years before. It now sat unused, but a wild rabbit had fallen into the 6 foot deep hole and was trapped. The rabbit made repeated leaps at the wall and scrambled to claw its way out. The well was too deep for the terrified creature to make the leap to freedom. Rabbits are not known for being aggressive or vicious, but they do have large, razor sharp teeth and are capable of cutting a person's hand to the bone. Jim knew that this rabbit was too panicked to handle. Thinking quickly, he put a ladder down the hole and climbed in with a metal bucket. Brian got out his phone to record the dramatic rescue and he stood above the cold cellar to provide encouragement and moral support for Jim. Jim made several attempts to scoop the rabbit into the bucket but the rabbit wasn't fond of the idea. Jim is no slouch, but he's not nearly as quick as a rabbit on the move and it becomes very entertaining to watch him try to keep up. Eventually, Jim gets the bucket under the rabbit and hoists it high enough to make the leap over the wall. Jim was obviously nervous as the rabbit bounced around in the confined space, narrowly missing his face as it scrambles to keep away from his bucket. His laugh at the end is partially due to the feeling of triumph and partially relief at having not been bitten by the poor creature. Jim is an animal lover and owns a small farm with an assortment of animals. He also feeds wild turkeys and deer on his property. The animals have become so used to Jim that he can walk among them with a feed bucket and they don't bat an eye. He has a real way with animals and will do anything to help a creature in need. Jim and Brian truly are contractors with heart!

Parrot decides to court kitchen spoon

It's spring and love is in the air! Einstein the parrot is no exception. Einstein has found a spoon on the kitchen counter and has decided to get amorous with it. With a cute little wave he makes his introduction. Then he tries to stand on the spoon, which is typical of the male bird standing on the female. The spoon isn't very sturdy so he decides to just tap it on the counter. Einstein is regurgitating little amounts of food. The male parrot will feed the female during the mating session. The posture he is displaying is typical as well. The male parrot will drape his wings completely over the female. At one point, Einstein looks as if he is no longer interested, and walks away. However, he returns and continues his courtship, the spoon is just too beautiful! In the end, he pushes the spoon off the counter and waves good-bye. Parting is such sweet sorrow! This behavior is temporary and sometimes parrots become very aggressive during this time of year. For this reason it is important not to reinforce this kind of behavior and remove any toys or objects that the parrot might take a liking to. Einstein is a 20 year old male parrot and has no mate. One might think that is sad, but in reality it is a positive thing that his owners has chosen not to mate him. Parrots live a very long time. Fifty years is the average lifespan. Hence, there are far too many parrots in captivity and parrot rescue organizations are very overcrowded with parrots that need forever homes. Most parrots are abandoned or abused from neglect after just 2 years. People do not realize the commitment and the training that is involved to live with a parrot. In addition, it is more difficult to breed a parrot. It is not like breeding dogs or cats. The two parrots have to like one another and not attack the other. Then, the pair must be left alone to gain each others trust and form a bond. This can be a long process and there can't be very much human interaction. If a bond is formed, then a nest box is provided. (For a parrot like Einstein who has a strong attachment with his owner he might never bond with another parrot.) If you are considering parrot ownership, please adopt. There are many wonderful, older parrots in need of homes. Einstein the Talking Texan Parrot is a silly, smart, and popular parrot who loves to talk and entertain! He likes to have conversations with his owners, talking and acting silly, and doing animal sound imitations. Watch him sing and dance in his video compilations!

Einstein parrot is also famous for some of his silly quotes and sayings. Online, Einstein the talking parrot is popular across many social media platforms. Einstein's favorite places to talk at home is perched on the shower wall, in the kitchen on his drawer, and on his screened in back porch. Living with a parrot is a big commitment. Parrots live a very long time. They require a lot of care, proper nutrition, training, time and patience. Parrots need a lot of attention and lots of toys and activities to keep from being bored. Parrots are also expensive. It is often said, Having a parrot is much like raising a 2 or 3 year old child for the rest of your life!
