Funny Pet Behaviors

Posted by

At Martha Stewart Living Radio, we love our pets and all animals in general. Martha's very own Frenchies, Francesca and Sharkey, have their own blog too. The dogs are quite fiesty -- and fun! Another cool pets perk we have here: a pets newsletter than you can sign up for! It will keep you up-to-date on all the latest pet news on health, nutrition, and behavior.

Speaking of behaviors, here's my African Grey Parrot Dusty showing off a behavior he taught himself.

What is Dusty doing with that feather?

Dusty Head Scratch I

Looks like he's sharpening it with his beak...

Dusty Head Scratch II

to use it as his very own back scratcher!

Dusty Head Scratch III

Do your pets have a funny behavior too? Do tell!

  • He needs a little red cap to match his beautiful red tail!

  • What an amazingly beautiful bird, Mario! And inventive, too- I'm surprised he doesn't have you trained to scratch his back for him!

  • Here's a funny behavior for you - my cat comes running the second you open a bottle of wine or champagne and he will claw you to pull your hand down so he can get in a few sips. He's indifferent to what the drink is - wine, champagne, bllody mary, margarita, beer, etc - if it has alcohol, he wants it. He also knows when to cut himself off!

  • Thanks for all your comments!!! I will check with Isaac Mizrahi to see if he can create a cap for Dusty!!! LOL
    And Phyllis, he already has me scratching his head.. Becky, Dusty, and Forrest totally run the show at my house!!!

  • Too cute, thanks for sharing the pics!
