room. What? Did you think I was REALLY vacuuming my little darling birds up? These birds are seriously LOONY. I mean the HAND that feeds them is a scary monster. But, I take a little Dirt Devil in yesterday and they paid no attention, even when it was right by their cages. So, tonight in went the shop vac. I started with it outside the door of the room, with just the hose in the room. That was freaking cold, though. Their door opens up to the outdoors. I have a thick curtain over it, but still it was cold. So, I took the shop vac all the way into the room and vacuumed away. They didn't pay a bit of attention. Not one bit. In fact, when I turned OFF the shop vac, I realized they were singing even louder than usual, as if to try to be heard over it. I will no longer be stuck just sweeping the carpet in there with a broom. Now I can really keep it cleaner in there. I can even vacuum the tops of their cages with it. They don't care at all.
