Mikki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mikki
Age: Twelve years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blue Fronted Amazon Parrot
Home: Cologne, Germany
   Mikki was actually born in South Africa, where I previously lived. He then joined me in my new place of residence, in Germany. He lives together with myself and my boyfriend. Although he is my pet, he absolutely loves my boyfriend best. When he is around, I get demoted to a persona non grata! But, nevertheless, he is a very special pet. He does not talk too much. He says: "hello," "bye-bye," "mom" and calls my boyfriend by his name. He loves to eat junk food, but only gets it on very special occasions. He is a very well-mannered bird. He would never poop on your shoulder. When he needs to go, he gets very edgy, and indicates that it's time to take him off one's shoulder and only when he is off will he do his "business." He is a very special bird to me.
