Weetie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Weetie
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA
   This is my bird, Weetie. I actually named him Sweetie but somehow his name was shortened to Weetie and he actually looks like a Weetie. I love Weetie because he gives me unlimited entertainment daily. He is very loving and cuddly. I am amazed at his uncanny ability to copy what he hears. He has been talking since right after we got him. He talks to my other birds and calls them by name. He says "Hi Cookie," "Hi Hoover," "Mama," "I love you," "pretty bird," "hello," "what," "peek a boo" and many other things. His favorite two songs are "Itsy Bitsy Spider" and "Puttin on the Ritz." He likes to dance and to play get that birdiebutt (his stuffed bird toy). He would play for hours if we would play with him. I have taught him different bird parts. He know his wings, beak, tail and his feet which we call his feetoe. He can say and identify all of them. I consider him my baby and some people say that I spoil him rotten! I love him with all my heart and I know he loves me cause he says so! He likes to eat whatever I am eating and wants to do so off of my plate. He sits right next to my chair in the living room so he gets the most attention from me. We also have three cockatiels and two parakeets which I also love dearly, but Weetie is by far the most fun!
