Anyone that has birds knows that they can make such a mess with the their seeds and such. We have our bird cage hanging over an empty corner behind our sectional sofa making it a pain to get behind and vacuum. Although, our Boston Terrier is fond of eating the seed that falls onto the couch Cheesy the mess drives me crazy. I've seen seed catchers in the store, but they're usually the ugly mesh kind. I made my mother-in-law one for Christmas w/ matching cage cover and decided we needed a seed catcher too. I like this one much better the fabric is much more to my liking. Ok, enough rambling on to the pics.

I added a hole in the cover to accommodate the water bottle too Grin

ohh man!  I seriously need this...my birds are sooooooo messy!  I've been trolling around in my brain to trying to figure out to do it....did you use velcro?  and do the little turkey butts chew on the fabric?

yes, I used velcro Smiley Haven't had a problem with them chewing the fabric, then again the birds don't seem to bother with the fabric on the cage cover either.

omg I love it!

I left my birds behind when I moved out of the house with my BF but now my mom is threatening to sell them (separately) if I dont take them soon. I have 8 tiels in 2 big cages. Im looking for either 1 really big cage to shove them all in or a cage that splits to separate the boys and girls because I really DONT need any more! The seed mess was the biggest issue with me and my BF b/c moms house has tile floors but my apt is carpet.

This could work!! Grin
