Kahless, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kahless
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Lilac-Crowned Amazon
Home: Silver Spring, Maryland, USA
   Kahless spent a few months at a pet store before we brought her home. She was very shy and cautious when we met her there. But she kept doing this cute little trick that made us adopt her- she would scratch her head with her foot and then forget what she was doing and just sit there with her foot hanging in the air. Maybe you had to be there, but it was adorable! Kahless lives at home with Echo and Tera, the conures. They don't play together alone quite yet - I think Kahless is a bit afraid of the little guys! She's still warming up to us, but she's come a long way. She's learning to play with toys and climb on her cage bars (she was in an acrylic cage without bars or toys at the shop). For about an hour each evening she talks up a storm even though the only real word she knows is "Hi." She's very sweet and I fall in love with her every time she puts her beak on her toes and asks me to pet the back of her neck.
