The Same Artist That Created The ‘Good Boy’ And ‘Black Cat’ Comics Is Back With A New Comic About A Parrot
Jenny Jinya is a freelance illustrator and animal rights activist from Germany whose name you should probably recognize if you frequent our website. The artist regularly creates heartbreaking comics that draw attention to various animal rights issues and this time she’s back with a comic about a pet parrot.
In her latest comic, Jenny tries to explain why budgies, and parrots in general, are very misunderstood pets – and how these misunderstandings often lead to their abandonment. As always, the artist provides some useful information and facts in the last panel, further explaining why you should do some serious research before choosing a parrot as a pet.

The artist went on to explain why parrots are some of the most misunderstood pets
Jenny explained that unlike cats and dogs, parrots are not domesticated animals, therefore they require lots of freedom and can be pretty loud and disruptive as that’s the same way they act in the wild. Some inexperienced owners might find this behavior hard or even impossible to tolerate, leading to the pets being placed in closets, garages, or other environments where they wouldn’t be heard. According to the artist, a majority of captive parrots eventually end up in at least five homes and often die prematurely. “Do your research before you decide to get an exotic pet!” concluded Jenny – and the same thing goes for any other pet you’re planning to get.
