Merv, the Pet of the Day
Name: Merv
Age: Fourteen months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Indian Ringneck Parrot
Home: Christchurch, New Zealand
   This is my Indian Ringneck Parrot, Merv. He is very cheeky, but very cuddly and cute. The past few months he has learned some new sayings, and his vocabulary now includes: "Hello Mervyn," "What are you doing?," "Pretty Boy," "No!" and "Ow!" - guess why he can say that?

    He also laughs and "kisses." This first picture was one of a series of "Christmas" pictures we tried to take. He wasn't too impressed with posing! The second is of Merv and Hank the cat, his best friend.
