Rappy can be so cute!

Raptor may be temperamental and aggressive, but he can also be oh-so-cute.

I rarely get good in-cage shots of Raptor because the office, where his cage is, doesn't have as much natural light flowing in as the bedroom does (where Mika's cage is).  Even when he's on the Java stand, right next to the window, the light still isn't that great because of the next stack of condos blocking the sun.  Today we had to move his cage into the bedroom temporarily for a few days while we do stuff in the office, so that meant nice lighting! :D 

He spent a good amount of time just hanging out on his boing, looking fluffed up and baby-ish!!

After his nap, he spent quite a while playing with his Grey Feather Toys MegaFone.  I really enjoyed watching him play with the chain and washers - he was really going at it!  Unfortunately, most of the pictures came out very blurry because he was moving around so much. 

So cute.  :)


  1. Adorable!
    Question - has Rappy been DNA'd male?

  2. I really like the yellow on Meyers heads, makes them look so unusual in a very beautiful way

    1. That's funny because the one thing both my bf and I didn't like about Meyer's is the yellow on the forehead! LOL We always thought it looked so out of place. My bf hated it while I just thought it looked weird. When we first adopted Raptor when he was 1 1/2, he didn't have the yellow patch AT ALL. Little did we know, since there wasn't any online research on it, that they develop the yellow patch as they get older - around 3 and up! Little by little, the yellow started showing up. LOL But it had developed so slowly that it's given us lots of time to get used to it. I don't even notice anymore. No matter what, yellow patch or not, we love him though! Hehe.
