O.K. so I'm wondering if any of your more experienced Too owners could tell me what it is that drives my Too crazy about the vaccume cleaner. I know I've read on the forum that quite a few of the Toos seem to love it. It stirs them up. LOL. Everytime I turn the vaccume on my Boo starts displaying, yelling hello, then tossing the ball and the rest of her toys down to the Yorkies to run after. She prances and dances all over the place yelling and playing. So how about it guys any clue as to why they love the vaccume. Elaine

Two of my 3 indoor U2's go nuts--and I remove water bowls BEFORE I plug in the vacuum! (Unless I'm in the mood to be on my knees wiping up water spills. <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" /> )

That's pretty funny. Seems all the TOOS share the have the same thing in common. They just love the vaccume. LOL. At first when she was doing it - going crazy with the vaccume, I thought that maybe the person that had her played with her or let her ride around on their shoulder when they were vaccuming. Guess, not, guess they just love the noise. LOL. or the fact we have to clean up after them. Hee hee. Boo also loves the heat from my laptop. She sits on the side of the sofa when I'm on the laptop and she squeals when the hot breeze comes out from the side. Although, I do discourage that just due to general saftey concerns. Elaine

I was told the vacuum makes the same "vibes" as a thunderstorm. This will get them to bathing. The first time I saw it was at the zoo. Then my U2 started doing it. She will stand on her bowl and kick all the water out.

Choo Choo starts to disply while I blow dry my hair in the morning! He seems to get a real kick out of it.

The vacuum and the blow dryer make Salvador go nuts. He'll display, throw anything he can get his beak on, splash in water, scream, whatever. I love it, he loves it.

I've never heard of the thunderstorm theory. We don't get many thunderstorms in the Bay Area so I won't get to see for myself.

My Sammi always screams "HELP!" when I first start the vacuum and then alternates between "WOW" and barking along with my dogs for the duration.

Jazz LOVES the vacuum too! If he's in his cage, he'll dance around and splash in his water dish. The other day he was on his play stand while I was vacuuming under it. He jumped off and started chasing it! I had taken the metal tube out of the motorized roller thing so it was just the tube. I found he loved to bite the end of it and let it suck his beak into the tube! He was so funny strutting around, bobbing his head, chasing the metal tube, running away and then running after it again!

The thunderstorm concept is interesting. If that's it it must be the vibrations. I have nature tapes which include thunderstorms. Jazz shows no reactions to the thunderstorms. But he seems to like the jungle sounds which is interesting because I don't think cockatoos are found in jungles, right?

Hmmm....I just gotta say something stupid here....

I really don't think it's the vibration or even the sound that causes birds to react to a vacuum cleaner.....

If you stop to consider how sensitive parrots are to changes in barometric pressure, it seems more likely that by running a vacuum cleaner inside a house, a small change in the air pressure is probably created. The bird senses the change and instinct takes over from there....

Boy I guess Casper is a weird Too. He usually does not make any noise when I vacuum. Sometimes he will scream when I first turn it on but never gets in the water or throws things at me when I vacuum. That is "too" funny.

Pash ignores the vacum but
she hates it when I go into the kitchen.

It's been like that since I got her.
And it could be anyone in the kitchen.
She starts screaming as if someone is in mortal danger.

I've tried moving her cage and everything.
The only time of the day i can go into the kitchen
is in the morning....or with her majesty on my shoulder.

You ARE in mortal danger! eek You might eat something without her assistance, which would be a tragic thing (from her point of view.) <img border="0" alt="[laughing]" title="" src="graemlins/laugh[1].gif" />
Or you might try to PREPARE food without her supervision: Oh NO!!!! :rolleyes:
Sounds like you call her the same thing my parents used for a cat they had, and for the same reason. "Her Majesty" lost whatever other name she once had, and we're talking about an entire family of people with extremely retentive memory banks! She lived for over 20 years, after she adopted them, and she was not young when she did that.
