Can a Cat and Bird Live Together?

Tuesday, August 19, 2014
posted by Jim Murphy

cat birdMillie loves to look at birds. When she sees them, she jumps and runs back and forth as if she wanted to catch something . So, can birds and cats live together in the same house?  The answer is “yes” if you take the proper precautions.  If your cat shows an interest in hunting your bird (which no doubt, he or she will at some point) spritz the cat with water. Most of the time, this will be enough to curb your cats predatory behavior after awhile. Birds are able to catch certain diseases from cats and direct contact to your cats fur through biting can increase the likelihood that your bird will catch something.  Always try to avoid physical contact between your bird and cat.  With consistent training the two should get along and not harm each other. Give your kitty lots of exercise by playing with her cat toys. This way she will not want to play with your bird!

Remember, your pets count.
