Huh? I have only been a member for a month or so, and I have had my cockatoos and cats for quite awhile. Yes, I was told by the breeder that a cat's saliva can kill a bird, and that is why I monitor the situation closely. When I am gone my cockatoos stay in their cages. I am not getting rid of my cats, they are also rescues who were thrown away by human beings. One, I found in weather of three degrees above.
