Mrs P The Therapy Parrot: A Wholesome Adventure Towards Therapy Animal Certification

Parrots are amazing birds! Each individual parrot is unique in his own way. Their beautiful feather coats come in all sorts of color mixes and varieties. Parrots are often kept as affectionate pets and can also be found in nature. Their life expectancies vary from around 10 years to over 50 years depending on the specific parrot species!

Mrs P here is a very special parrot indeed. She was recently accepted into an animal therapy program at her local hospital. At over 40 years old, Mrs P knows a thing or two about making people happy.

You are probably wondering, how does an animal become a therapy animal? Well, it is different in every hospital but at Mrs. P's hospital the process went a little something like this. Mrs. P was first signed up for a screening evaluation where she was held, pet, and had to nicely take a treat. She did not have to be perfect for the screening process, but rather show that she had the capacity to deal with people and a suitable temperament. Her owner reports that she passed this screening with flying colors!

This video is a masterpiece. How we have never come across this video in the past is beyond us because this video is pure gold! Therapy is so important, to be able to talk to a non-biased person about your thoughts, problems, insecurities, it's so beneficial to talk to someone and have that weight lifted off you. 

Well, we figure cats should have the same opportunities to speak their minds and vent to a therapist as well! And thank goodness they did because they certainly have a lot to say. We wish nothing but the best for these kitties in therapy! 

If your cat was in therapy, what do you think they'd say?
