Skittles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Skittles
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: White-Bellied Caique
Home: High Ridge, Missouri, USA
   My name is Skittles. My owners are Brandy & Patrick. I love to play all the time. I have lots of toys in my cage and enjoy lots of healthy and tasty fruits. My favorite food is sunflower seeds, but my owners don't like to give them to me all the time because I got fat, but lost the weight, which is unhealthy. I always love attention because I require it. I am losing the black feathers on my head. I hope I don't go bald! Just joking, it is natural!

    Skittles is a White-Bellied Caique. These unique birds are from South America. They are very active and very playful. Owners must give attention to these birds at least daily. They love to drink and eat everything in sight but require fruits in their diet. Skittles received his name because of his exotic colors. Skittles is very special to us and we don't know what we would do without him. They are so friendly and love to have their belly rubbed.
