Tweety, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tweety
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lutino Parakeet
Home: Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA
   My bird Tweety is special because he has a vocabulary that has so many words we lose count. He is coming up with more everyday, and most of the time, says them for no reason at all. Sometimes, he can associate "Hi Tweety!" with entering a room and "Bye Tweety!" with leaving. He lives like a human, in the way that he has a stuffed animal. In one picture, you can see that his stuffed animal is a pig named Babe. He treats it like his baby, defending it and feeding it. He will not leave the cage unless the pig is with him. Since we keep his wings trimmed, he has never learned how to fly. When we do clip them, he takes off and crashes into everything because he doesn't know how to apply his brakes, stop, or even how to turn! He is a great company in the morning for my mom, when he talks to her as she drinks her coffee. When ever he hears a car pull into the garage or my bus go past the house, he will scream at the top of his little lungs until someone comes into the room. He really does have a lot of character and is a wonderful bird. The small picture is of Tweety and his pig, Babe.
