Ziggy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ziggy
Age: Eight years old
Gender: Male
Kind: White Eyed Conure
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   Ziggy was adopted when he was three years old. His previous owners did not want him anymore. :( Ziggy was very lonely and mistreated. In his new home, he found the love and attention he so desperately needed! Ziggy is very happy now and has lots of friends to play with. Ziggy can say "Hi!", "Hello!", "What?!", "Cracker!", "Sharon!" (That's his Mom's name), "Uh-oh!" and "I love you!" When someone eats a crunchy, noisy food (such as an apple) Ziggy will mimic the biting and crunching noise, just like a cartoon! When he hears his Dad, John, brush and floss his teeth in the morning, he mimics that noise too! If you snap your fingers to a beat, he will dance and make a clicking sound just like it. Ziggy loves to be sung to! If you sing to him, he will dance for you! At night, he sleeps in a large cage upstairs near his parents' bedroom. At the bottom of his cage, he has a carpet covered kitty condo, which he uses as a night-time nest! Before we gave it to Ziggy, we had it out on the living room floor for our cats. Since the cats didn't use it, and Ziggy loved to play in it, we gave it to her instead! Conure owners should try this! Ziggy even has his own web site! Here, you can see more pictures, hear his talk and even watch a video clip!
