Polly Jo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Polly Jo
Age: Six years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Alexandrine Parakeet
Home: Columbus, Ohio, USA
   This is PJ, which is short for Polly Jo, an Alexandrine Parakeet who loves to eat when we eat! Her favorites are mashed potatoes, spaghetti, and corn. Also a french fry will never make it out of our house alive!

    PJ is the boss of the house. She loves to take a bath in the pie pan on top of her cage while I run the vacuum. I don't know why, but the sound just makes her want a bath!! She is mainly my bird. She wants to be with me everywhere I go, and eat or drink whatever I am. Her favorite is soda pop, straight out of the bottle. She also loves wine! One evening she drank a little too much, and had a little difficulty getting back to her cage. Needless to say, I haven't let her have wine since then.

    Polly Jo doesn't really play any games, except that she does play with the cat. She goes to the bottom of the cage, and he stretches up to her, and they play back and forth.
