Keeping me warm

My new carer is worried that I might catch cold. I say, not likely at the moment... it is really hot here! But she is worried and so she posted a question on Yahoo Answers to see if anyone had a pattern for knitting me a jumper.

No-one does, apparently, but someone had a good idea that I think I might like even more than a jumper. This is what they said:

"I think it would be very hard to keep a sweater on a bird. Your best bet is to wrap your bird in a blanket when you transport it in the cold and while it is sedated. I have seen birds do quite well without body feathers. I am sure you know to keep it out of drafts. I would also have an area in the cage that is sort of boxed in for the bird to go into and snuggle. There are many tents available but also easy to make. Make it just a little larger than the bird so it can go in and have the cloth sides snuggle against the birds sides to keep it warm. I forget the names of these tent things but you will see what I mean."

Thank you Yahoo Answers person. I am looking forward to having one of these tents. :-)
