Basil, the Pet of the Day
Name: Basil
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Budgie (Parakeet)
Home: Brisbane, Queensland, Australia
   This is name is Basil. He is four-year-old budgie (parakeet) and lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. I got Basil when he was about two months old from a pet store. Basil was my first budgie and since that first encounter in the pet store, we have become great mates :-)

    So what makes my Basil special? Being a very sociable bird, he loves company. His favorite people in the world are me, and my mother. Basil will sit for hours talking to himself saying things like, Hello Basil Time to put the washing out Its hot today Zoe's coming home today How about some food? My flatmates taught him to swear when he was younger, though now, like all teenagers, he has grown out of that stage :-) Recently I have acquired three guinea pigs which are kept near his cage. Guinea pigs like to squeak a lot, especially when they are hungry, and Basil has started to imitate this squeak now :-) Basil also loves to sit on the couch with me and either watch tv or listen to music. His favorite artists are easy listening type artists, he hates anything heavy metal. As you can see, Basil is a very special bird.
