2 bedroom; Close to MUNI; NO Dogs; 21 Birds OK

Anyone who lives in the city knows it can be difficult to find a pet-friendly apartment. My landlord ok’d my dog, since he is “smaller than a cat”. Personally, as a lover of animals, I think landlords should be more lenient. However, a neighbor of mine is probably a good example of “pushing it to the limits”.

It’s hard to take a picture in the sunlight, but on a nice day with the shades are open, you can see a few of my neighbor’s feathered friends. (A few of the flock pictured below) I’ve counted up to about 21 medium-sized, tropical birds with free reign of the front room.

I can’t see too far into the apartment because it’s on the second floor; but in my mind, the rest of the room is decorated with hanging vines and leaves. Maybe a jungle sound effects CD is playing in the background? The windows are definitely decorated… with something else.

    Remember the chicken scene in Pink Flamingos? Be very afraid. Maybe that isn’t bird droppings on the window.

    that must be really nice for birds to have free reign in the front room like that! i just can’t imagine what the cleanup must be like!

    Shit… I used to live with a guy who had birds. Scroll back to the first word in my comment.
