||Twenty years old|
||Mississauga, Ontario, Canada|
is a male Cockatiel who is over 20 years old. Zeppy is
considered a senior citizen since a cockatiel's lifespan is 15-25
years old. Zeppy is definitely set in his ways; he wants his head
scratched first thing in the morning and around 9pm he starts getting
tired and lets us know that he wants to go to sleep by screaming.
Once we cover him he starts telling us what a pretty bird he is. When
we sit down to eat, he bangs on his cage for food - he wants table
scraps like any dog. The vet says he's very ornery and a very
difficult to handle so we've stopped clipping his nails. This makes
it hard on me when he sits in his favorite spot in the entire world -
on top of my head, because his nails dig into my skull. Zeppy's
really a very good boy and we love him very much.
