Crackers, the Pet of the Day
Name: Crackers
Age: Ten months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lovebird
Home: Agoura Hills, California, USA
   Crackers is an adorable Lovebird. He is very very spoiled. He has a cage that was made for an African Gray Parrot. He has toys that would over stimulate a dog. He is the most spoiled Lovebird I know. He has a whitish face with a little pink on the very top. He has a green back with a gorgeous blue tail. He has a very light blue stomach. We bought him from a pet shop (or mostly a bird shop!) called Pets Stop. My friend Annaliese bought her Lovebird Peepers there, too. The funniest thing is, they're siblings!!!

    Every day he wakes me up (If I forget to cover his cage) and I take him out. He climbs right onto my hand... well okay, not exactly. I have to catch him first. Then he jumps on my hand, walks up my arm, and just sits there on my shoulder. The more you move around the more he just sits there.

    Crackers' favorite foods are apples, millets, grapes, walnuts, and beans and pasta. When you say, "Give me a kiss," he leans forward and opens his beak slightly and licks your cheek. Crackers lives in my room and loves to tweet. I let him fly around sometimes and he stops and looks at the mirror. He tweets and tweets as if to say, "Who are you, Peepers or something?" He is so adorable that no one can resist the face he gives you when he wants to be taken out of his 'luxurious prison.' He is so cute and he is the best bird ever!!!
