Can an ESA Parrot Provide Emotional Assistance
Do you want an emotional support animal letter and are stuck between two or three common choices?
Can you only think of dogs or cats because they are familiar territory?
Well, let us pop this bubble for you because birds are highly superior than four-legged friends and after reading this post, you will be completely convinced about the beauty of a bird as an emotional support animal.
Parrots can make excellent ESAs as they show extremely high levels of empathy and can also learn some specific words, phrases, or sentences that are mood-boosters and can improve the general environment simply by their presence.
Are you moving to a posh neighborhood and your landlord is not allowing you to keep your parrot?
Know the laws regarding keeping your feathery ESAs with you wherever you are! For this purpose, you can also find a sample of an ESA letter for housing online which would give you a clear idea!
In order to qualify for keeping a parrot as an ESA, you must know about the numerous benefits these beautiful and talkative birdies have in store for you.
And yes! They can prove to be highly instrumental if you are seeking emotional support from these wondrous creatures.
Here’s how. . .
Over the last many years, parrots have been used as emotional support animals owing to their unique abilities of mimicking a vast spectrum of interesting voices and uncanny phrases. All those people who suffer from varying levels of anxiety and other psychological problems have reported that being in close proximity of a parrot is very helpful and calms their senses in minutes.
Here’s something! They know what you are going through mentally. . .
It is believed that parrots are inherently aware of human emotion and can judge if their owners are going through some emotional difficulties. If you are agitated, there’s a greater chance that your ESA parrot would come to your assistance and soothe you. Parrots can also sense any emotional triggers and help their owners by calming them down before they experience a dangerous emotional episode.
Tantrums? Rarely, and that too due to specific causes. . .
Parrots also don’t show any aggressive behavior unless they are annoyed by a stranger or are not fed properly. They only act unusually if there’s a lack of mental stimulation or other issues related to dominance or breeding. If you use proper tactics, your parrot will prove to be the most cheerful presence and fill your life with love and entertainment.
A relationship with your ESA letter parrot would be an intensely rewarding experience. . .
The natural abilities of parrots to bond with humans and charm strangers with humor can be highly surprising at times. Some people also train their parrots to sing and dance with them, which is a whole new experience in itself.
Worried about your ESA parrot’s accommodation and maintenance?
People can have an easier time when it comes to their housing and travel as they are really low-maintenance. Unlike dogs and cats, parrots do not require long-walks or evening strolls with their owners and their cages don’t require a lot of space as well. Their cleaning and excretory activities can also take place inside their cages.
Tip: A wonderful idea is to install play pedestals for your ESA parrots so that these beautiful and cheeky birds can keep you engaged!
Here’s to a friendly and positive long-term relationship with your new feathery and fun-loving ESA!
