Subject:Re: leaving birds home alone
Message:I am very sorry to hear about your friend. Leaving overnight is usually OK, if you take care of them in the morning and then come back next day/evening. I've done this a few times myself. It would be better though if you could get a friend or relative to come by and check up on them, just to make sure they are OK. Sometimes they'll throw food, or tip a water cup. You don't want them to go without food or water for a day. Also, before you leave, go over all their toys and make sure there's no possible way for them to get caught or hurt on anything. They can get very creative when stuck in the cage all day without attention.

Good Luck
