Chandra, the Pet of the Day
Name: Chandra
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Red Lorikeet
Home: Toronto, Ontario, Canada
   Chandra is a seven-year-old red lory. She's been with me since she was three months old, and has been a wonderful, affectionate, entertaining and loyal friend all these years. She has been with me through many changes, and even seems to embrace change, as new circumstances and environments stimulate her. She is bonded to an eight-year-old dusky lory named Spunky, and was very gracious about allowing him to share her territory when he joined our family approximately six years ago.

    Chandra and Spunky have occasional arguments and often try to end a fight by yelling, "Stop! Just Stop!" at each other. Although they know several phrases, speaking is not their best talent. Most outstanding is their intelligence, playfulness and sense of humour. Both birds spend a great deal of time running around the living room, pushing small balls around in a game of "lory soccer."
