Cali, the Pet of the Day
Name: Cali
Age: 15 months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Indian Ringneck Parakeet
Home: Keizer, Oregon, USA
   This is Cali, an Indian Ringneck Parakeet. She is a blue mutation, 15 months old. Cali is the light of my life. She is loving, funny, intelligent, beautiful, and says "I love you" and sings "Happy Bird Day." She wants to be with me all the time and cuddles up at night when we watch television. She is a very special bird and brings me much joy.

    I saw her at a bird show just over a year ago. She was sitting on top of the cage and I "knew" she was my baby right then and there. I bought her at nine weeks of age. Her clutchmates were the normal green color. Blue mutations are not as rare as they used to be, but you still don't see a whole lot of them. I'd never had a ringneck before and had only seen one other blue one in a bird store. Other than parakeets and one tiel years ago, I've never had parrots before. They are something else!! And far more intelligent than I'd ever imagined!
