Inca, the Pet of the Day
Name: Inca
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Blue Front Amazon Parrot
Home: Los Angeles, California, USA
   Inca is special because she can call me by my name when she wants me! Inca is a show off. As soon as a friend comes over she clicks into actress mode and starts to swing from chains, call out "Up up?" and "Hi! Hello!" She likes to tempt people she doesn't know into coming over to pick her up by saying, "Up?" but then acts like she's going to bite them when they reach out. She's a tease. She also knows how to say "You're such a good girl" but is very lazy--she knows she'll get her way just by starting "You're such..." in the right tone--and she knows I'll finish the phrase for her.

    She loves the bells and whistles on the computer. Whenever a sound effect goes off on the computer she'll imitate it. She loves the boat horn sound on icq. She also imitates crows and blue jays perfectly. She is now learning to sing along with the children's song "I Had a Rooster." She's learned to imitate the animal sounds (well, she's still learning, but she's got the duck and the pig down pretty well!). She definitely loves to sing and will join in with any female singers (especially Celtic songs!). It's pretty funny when she tries to join in and belt out the tune! Her favorite game is stealing my pens or taking a toy from my hand and unceremoniously tossing it to the floor, then waiting for me to pick it up and give it back to her. Brat!
