Should I Get A Conure With 4 Cats And A Dog In My Home?

Leahloveskittens writes

 

I am a teen in the process of saving up for a green cheeked conure while I’m still in school.

 

I have done a lot of research on them.

 

The problem is that my family also has 4 cats and a dog.

Hi Mitch

I’ve been enjoying your emails for some time now.

Would you be able to direct me in the right direction to find a good and safe branch for them?
