Mandy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mandy
Age: Four and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Catalina Macaw
Home: Kansas, USA
   Mandy is a Catalina Macaw. That is a hybrid breed resulting from the pairing of a Blue and Gold macaw and a Scarlet macaw. She is a very vivid orange red color on her breast feathers and a turquoise blue on her back. The undersides are a gold, and she is stunning!

    She has a large vocabulary and can ask for certain foods by name. She also tells us when she wants to "go for a walk." Although she is large and looks intimidating, she is very friendly and lovable. She likes to go outside with us when the weather is nice and yes, she is very spoiled! Things are never the same, once you get a macaw, but, they require much attention and are not for everyone.
