Hypnos, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hypnos
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: American Parakeet
Home: Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA
   Hypnos is the sweetest little parakeet ever! He likes to chatter into bells. He gives kisses on command--if he feels like it. He likes to sing along to U2's Joshua Tree--but that's the only CD he really likes. He surprised me one day when I was sitting back to relax, all the birds were chirping and making joyful noises. I heard someone talking--I thought it was one of the baby greys that I was feeding at the time, but it was Hyppie. Hi. Hey baby. Pretty bird. What'cha doing? Whatz up? Hello pretty bird. HIYA! Hey there pretty baby!

    Makes any Mom proud.

    When I come into the room, usually the first thing I do is greet everyone with Hi, how are you? Sometimes, What'cha doing? Both greetings, Hypnos has learned. Then of course, since he's such a pretty bird, I tell him so. What I suspect he did, was teach himself how to talk listening to himself in a bell. He sticks his head in the bell at the bottom of one of his toys and chatters to himself.
