Agador, the Pet of the Day
Name: Agador
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Mexican Red-Headed Amazon
Home: Arlington, Texas, USA
   Agador has learned how to say "What 'cha doin'?" "I'm a pretty bird," "Hello," and her name, "Agador." She loves it whenever someone begins whistling. She becomes excited and moves back and forth on her perch. Whenever I laugh, Agador laughs with me. She clucks to the pattern and beat to which I laugh. Sometimes when she sits on top of her cage or playpen, she'll hear me in another room. She'll fly to the ground and walk into the room that she hears me in. The floors are hardwood so you can hear her nails click with every step. She allows me to hold her on her back and she'll hang upside down off my finger. I first got Agador when she was only three months old; I was hand-feeding her at this point, so I'm her momma. Whenever she becomes scared, she'll fly to me, climb up on my shoulder, and sit as close to my head as possible. She feels safe there. She's very playful and very loving.
