Tweety, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tweety
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Plumhead
Home: South Africa
   My mother always wanted a Plumhead, but nowhere could we find a young, healthy little bird. We looked around for a few months, until we heard about two young(ish) little Plumheads. We never saw the two of them together, since we didn't have a choice of which one to pick (we wanted the youngest). So there he (the breeder said that he's 90% sure it's a male) was, bought on South Africa's second general election- day, 2 June 1999. We had a lot of suggestions on what to name him, but since it's my mother's she got to pick his name - and it didn't take her long to name him Tweety (after that cute little yellow bird on the TV). On that same afternoon I caught him - he didn't bite! Since then he only nibbles at me, but bites nobody else. He likes to play underneath our blankets early in the mornings and late in the evenings. Although he's my mother's the whole family plays with him - he's so adorable!

    He only eats Eggfood and apples and always gets grumpy when some cooked food is offered. While Glennie, our baby-Ringneck, gladly enjoys any cooked food, Tweety just growls and makes weird noises. He's a very sweet little bird that always enjoys getting attention and loves to be in the company of someone. He likes to get in under my mother's warm, cuddly jerseys and spends most of his time being 'heated-up' like that.
