When you are small, round, and cute with grey feathers, you quickly become well-versed in the “Psychology of Perching.”
Where you choose to perch says everything about your place in the household pecking order – which is at the very top, of course. And nothing says “top” like “high.”
Here, if you cannot secure a very high movable perch (such as the Tall Tree) the next best thing is a high immovable perch.
That way you can select the activities you want to participate in and easily avoid the ones you don’t prefer (such as your quarterly trip to the V.E.T.)
