Opal, the Pet of the Day
Name: Opal
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Moluccan Cockatoo
Home: Ark, Virginia, USA
   Opal is a six year old female Moluccan Cockatoo. She is one of the flock at Rescue Me, an Avian Sanctuary. Although she has been a chest plucker since a year before her arrival in 1998, Opal has enough personality for a flock of birds. She runs loose through the offices, turns the music up louder, rearranges all of the paperwork and helps herself to various snack treats. She displays all of her feathers and "preaches" to anyone who will listen (and everyone has to listen!). Opal is also loving and caring. Her best friend is the sanctuary's Basenji. We are all very lucky and grateful that Opal has touched our lives.
