Krickett, the Pet of the Day
Name: Krickett
Age: Five and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: College Park, Maryland, USA
   We got Krickett as a small baby, only a few months old. He's a great bird, always ready to play and have fun. He talks a little and says, "Krickett are you wicked?" "Give me a kiss" and "I love you." He also likes to whistle and mimic the cat. Krickett eats a variety of food which includes fresh fruits and vegetables. He loves corn on the cob the best!

    Krickett shares his cage with Thumper, a female Quaker parrot. It's really unusual for two different types of birds like Krickett and Thumper to live together but they are so in love, always kissing and calling to each other. If I take Thumper out of the cage for play time Krickett has to come too! They can't stand to be away from each other at all. Senegal parrots make great pets. They are quiet and very intelligent. Krickett never screams like some of the larger parrots and always has a very soft voice and he likes to snuggle, too.
