    Relax puddytat. If they get out of the cage with that attitude, you’re in for a tasty snack.

    We cannot afford to line the bird cage with newspaper which now costs a whole lot more for a whole lot less. Nowadays, we read the “paper” online.

    Totally irrelevant fact for the day — mammals evolved before dinosaurs. Some proto-mammals were as big as cattle. Even at the height of dinosaurian supremacy, fox-sized mammals were feeding on baby dinosaurs.

    So hang in there folks; we come from tough stock.

    Saying that birds evolved from dinosaurs is not the same thing as saying that birds evolved from large dinosaurs. I don’t know if they did or not. The most famous dinosaurs were not the ancestors of birds.

    Most dinosaurs were not any larger than today’s house pets.

    I used to put my cats’ litter boxes on newspaper pages with certain politicians’ pictures in them.

    Prices for my local newspaper went from $35 to about $105 per three months in just over a year, and that was just for Sunday delivery. Online or nothing are the only options now.

    Cat is thinking it’s ancestor was of saber tooths. Might give little dinos a run for their money, or whatever was valuable to them.

    I line the bottom of my bird’s cage with an old iPad. He can read whatever paper he wants and if it gets dirty, I just hose it off.

    Last year in a park, I saw what looked like a small dinosaur skeleton. I thought it was probably a plastic model toy that some kid got from the Museum of Natural History. Then I realized it was a long dead bird.

    Meanwhile, there’s a “museum” in Kentucky with exhibits that claim dinosaurs were on Noah’s Ark.

    I am thinking of what those birds might look like if their cage was lined with political news or, worse yet, with repeats of Buttercups twitterpated Twitter rants. One probably would be singing Forty Miles of Bad Road over and over, while swinging upside down. The other would be trying to drown itself in the water dish.

    Is it only me, or does the dog in the first panel look like the Hell Hound from “Good Omens”? You know, before Adam named him Dog. . .

    You don’t want to line the birdcage with your tablet. They might find some bird porn site.

    I think the cat has a good point , but the political section would be more appropriate.

    Lining the bird’s cage with the Business section of the paper is o.k. – even the Political & Op-Ed sections are acceptable … but never use the Comics!!

    I had a cardinal who had feather mites so bad that he was bald-headed. The lizard/dinosaur roots were so obvious and ugly.

    Buy the local newspapers to support the local economy and keep the local politicians in check. I still get the local newspaper in paper. There’s a digital version, but it’s part of the paper price. You can’t get digital by itself.

    Many years ago, I had a golden retriever puppy, and my method for house-training her in her room was to cover the whole floor in newspapers. As she settled into pooping and peeing in one spot, the newspapers became less and less until she was paper-trained naturally. The room was large enough that I was running out of newspaper so I made a few withdrawals from the neighborhood newspaper recycling bins. My mom’s friends thought that was funny and started giving her their newspapers to stop my life of crime.

    A majority of coelurosaur groups became extinct in the Cretaceous–Paleogene extinction event, including the Tyrannosauroidea, Ornithomimosauria, Oviraptorosauria, Deinonychosauria, Enantiornithes, and Hesperornithes. Only the Neornithes (modern birds) survived, and continued to diversify after the extinction of the other dinosaurs into the numerous forms found today.

    Why couldn’t the cage be lined with the Op-Ed and Letters to the Editor pages, which for many newspapers in this country would be their highest and best use.

    The business section is already too full of poop to be used for lining bird cages.
