Hello, everyone! I'm waiting on my vape kit (a Riva) and had asked in the Newbie Forum about vaping and parrots. Angelique very kindly pointed me in the direction of this awesome group! Those of us owned by parrots know that they have a very delicate and unique respiratory system, one which is very, VERY sensitive to fumes and odors. Scented candles, air fresheners, aerosols, Teflon (any type of non-stick), and analog smoke are absolute no-no's. In fact, one of the reasons for my checking out vaping is due to the analog smoke and the parrots. My concern is the effect vaping might have. My avian vet is more concerned about any potential fumes, detectable or non-detectable, coming from an overheated atty or cart. So how many of you are parrot owners? Tell me your experiences and suggestions when vaping in the vicinity of a parrot. Have your vets expressed concern about vaping around your birds? As for me, I have Charlie and Moses (both African Greys, 2 and 11, respectively), Poe (an Umbie 'Too, 3 1/2 years old), and Gertie (a sassy little Spectacled 'Zon, 3 years old). The only problem I expect is from Charlie, who is a pen/pencil/electronic gadget freak and is insistent that I not be too far out of his sightline. He's going to see that Riva and insist on chewing it, or, at least "touching it". I may have to make him his own little pseudo-vape out of an empty ballpoint pen housing. lol I've got a parrot-resistant container ready to go when my supplies arrive so that curious beaks don't decide to "touch" any juice containers or batts. Great to "meet" all of you. Looking forward to the chat.
