Your Basic Bird is a really cute pet store located on College Avenue in Berkeley. They have the usual array of cat, dog and bird food, and they also have live small pets for sale.
They almost always have cute kittens or bunnies in the window, and the back of the store hosts a myriad of squawking birds. It is fun to visit them, especially the larger parrots.
I rated Your Basic Bird as "good" because they hardly have any cat items available. They have a lot of dog toys and food, but not much for our feline friends.
I do like to browse the store however, and they have rats, mice, guinea pigs and chinchillas to look at.
