So earlier summer 2017 both my wife and I lost our jobs. Before that when we were working he spent the day in his cage (8-5ish) with no problems. I started working again in August, and my wife started up again in November. It seems the time that we started working again, I don't know exactly when, he began to get destructive in his cage, or escaping his cage when we are gone. This doesn't happen all the time, but it's happened enough where I had to replace the curtain rods a couple of times.
