Piccolo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Piccolo
Age: Two years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Parakeet
Home: South Carolina, USA
   Piccolo is a two year old parakeet. She has a constant companion, Angel. Piccolo doesn't socialize much with the human members of her flock but she surprises us sometimes. When we first got her, she wouldn't eat any kind of veggies. After more than a year she was moved next to our cockatiels, who love their veggies. She was definitely watching because soon after, she started chowing down on greens and corn cut off the cob. She absolutely loves carrots! Piccolo plays with them as much as she eats them. One of her favorite activities is to tear the carrot in little tiny pieces and fling them from the cage! I find carrot pieces on the walls, floor, windows and blinds. I don't mind too much because I know how much she enjoys playing with them.

    Just the other day I put my hand in her cage to give her veggies and she sat perfectly still and even took a tiny bite off of the carrot. Was I ever surprised! She's never let me get that close to her before! Maybe one day I'll get her to sit on my finger!
