TOP5 PETS HAS MOVED

Dreadful sorry about the intrusive Tripod ads. We have pulled up stakes and moved to an ad-free environment*.

Join us in our new space by closing the panel on the left then clicking this link:

http://coldwetnose.ws

If the unwanted sidebar window on the left opens up along with it, you can get rid of the offending portion by clicking the "x" in its upper right-hand corner. Click on the actual window on the left, not on the explanatory graphic below.

click on x to close Tripod window

 
* Ok, there are a few small ads at the bottom of the main page, BUT Top5 Pets directly benefits from them. We keep them unobtrusive.

                 The Top 8 Signs Your Parrot Was
                 Previously Owned By a Celebrity


 8> You come home from work one day and find all the crackers
    gone and the Betty Ford Clinic on speed dial.

 7> "*BRO-KAW*  Dan Rather sucks!  *BRO-KAW*"

 6> "What is: Polly wants a cracker?"

 5> It wears a multi-colored ribbon to promote French Moult 
    Awareness.

 4> "Dude, where's my cracker?"

 3> He doesn't SAY much, but he insists on wearing trunks and 
    you keep finding pieces of human ear in his cage.

 2> "When I say, 'Squawk,' I want you to hit it and quit!  
    Hit it and quit!  Ready?  SQUAWK!"


              and the Number 1 Sign Your Parrot Was
                Previously Owned By a Celebrity...


 1> Can recite the Ten Commandments, but they're oddly punctuated 
    by the sound of semi-automatic gunfire.
