Ace, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ace
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: Cromwell, Connecticut USA
   Ace was named after the famous "Ace Ventura, Pet Detective" but we played around with the name and came up with Ace Ventura, Pet Parakeet :). I asked a friend of mine who's in Japan what Ace's name translated to in Japanese and the best she could do was 'Ichi-ban' or 'the best.' Ace sure likes that name, because he considers himself 'the best'!!

    Ace will bite fingers if anyone invades his 'territory' in his cage, and believe me, he can be vicious when territorial! But, when you let him out of his cage, he knows that the area is "our" area, not his, and will be a sweet little thing. When you let him out for hours at a time, he will become unbelievably nice. He has let me rub my cheek against him and gives me birdie kisses :)

    His birthday was supposed to be sometime like late summer/early fall of '94; so, we took my mother's birthday, August 28, and that has become his official birthday at our house. Ace is definitely not photo shy! His pictures usually come out very well. Visit his website and be sure to visit Ace's costume shop :).
