    You really can't teach her to stay away from them. And a stand won't protect them when you're not around. She can jump on top of it and hurt them through the bars (or give them a heart attack). It's a sticky situation.

    thank u for your response....you're right.....when im not home i put the cage in a room with door shut.....i read that even if the cat accidentally claws the bird it can be fatal....thanks

    I have two parakeets as well and when we got my kitty, Tasha, I hung the bird's cage up HIGH in a room with absolutly nothing around that she could jump on to try and get to the cage. She has (somewhat) lost interest in them, but still lays there and watches them from time to time:)
