Contiki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Contiki
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
   This is my beautiful little boy and best buddy, Contiki (Tiki for short). Tiki shares his home with his human family, his big sister, Pandora, who is an African Grey, his little brother, Horus, a Blue Headed Pionus and his favorite kitty, Talichat, who is a purebred Birman. Tiki is the little entertainer in our family. He loves to sway back and forth to music and even makes a feeble attempt at singing. He enjoys going for rides in the car and is happy sitting on my shoulder while he listens to the radio.

    During the nice weather, he likes to visit his "Uncle Mommy" who hand fed him as a baby at the pet store. Tiki and his siblings went on their first camping trip this past summer to a Summer Star Party and were the center of attraction. Tiki has a good appetite and loves his morning oatmeal and soy milk. He loves to play with his toys, sometimes laying on his back while he does and loves to sleep in his birdie hammock at night. His favourite snack is almonds in a shell which also help to keep his beak in good shape.

    Tiki has a small vocabulary and will say "Tiki, bye bye, step up, no, night night and hello". It's true what they say about conures being loud, but Tiki is so cute and has so much personality, you can't help but love him.
