About Us
Sweetie and Willow, the Pet of the Day
Name: Sweetie, Willow
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Toronto, Canada
   This is Sweetie and Willow. Sweetie is a 'Normal' male cockatiel who is five years old. Willow is a 'White Face' male cockatiel also five years old. They are absolutely the greatest and a big part of our family. They both sing a lot of songs, whistle tunes, talk and even recite Hickory Dickory Dock, the birdy went up the clock! Run the house and us...partaking in everything we do, plus sharing our meals, watching TV, going to bed and Must check out my grocery bags when coming home. In this picture I found them wandering through my Christmas Village having a Dandy time.

    Sweetie was born here, a surprise arrival...on our Anniversary. He has a flaw in his right cheek patch and it landed up looking like a heart...thus the name Sweetheart. He was not faring well and we started hand feeding him a few days later. During this time a friend had a baby whiteface born who also was not doing well and I decided to feed him as well and the two were raised together in a basket. Since they needed extra care and warmth they were with us 24 hours a day. Very quickly they became so attached to humans that in no time at all they both picked up the talking and singing. To this day they love to lay down with us and have a nap or even do housework...ha Never a shopping trip ends without the two having to go through all our parcels. The one amusing thing is, one of them likes to suck a favorite little toy...sort of like a pacifier, and will fall asleep and continue to suck.
