First time pet owner
I’m looking at getting a small bird, likely a cockatiel, once I finish my schooling. Our family owns a cat so the only places that would be safe for it would be in a cage either outside the house, but close and in constant view, or in my room. I’ve read that it is bad for birds to be left alone in a room, as they feel isolated, so would having a bird in either of these spaces be bad for it? Would it still be happy or should I wait until I have my own space, with no cat, to purchase a new pet?
