Mango, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mango
Age: Four months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pied Cockatiel
Home: Atlanta, Georgia, USA
   This is my cockatiel, Mango. Mango is the sweetest, most loving bird money can buy. I volunteer at the Cherokee County Humane Society, and one day I saw this little bird at Haynes Pet Centre and immediately fell in love. We bonded right away and I insisted on buying him. After nagging my parents, they gave in to his adorable face and we bought him that weekend. He now shares my room with me, five parakeets, two frogs, and a fish.

    Mango spends most of his time practicing his whistling. The whistles aren't quite making out tunes yet, but it's getting there. If I am in my room and Mango isn't out with me, he will go crazy in his cage until I open his door and he is free. Mango is most content just sitting on my shoulder, playing in my hair, and giving me kisses. Mango is definitely a great companion and his personality is just like a little kid!
