Picasso, the Pet of the Day
Name: Picasso
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Missouri, USA
   A friend of mine owned a Quaker named Buddy and he just talked up a storm. When I met Buddy I knew it was all over I had to have one of these beautiful creatures. I already owned two budgies and one cockatiel. I got Picasso almost five years ago. Her hatchday is April 9th. My parents and I went to a bird fair. And I saw a lady there who was selling these awesome birds. And I asked my dad if I could get one. He allowed it. Then the lady picked up this little green devil, and told me to pick her up. I promptly got bitten. I shook my hand a little hard and the bird fluttered to the floor. I went to pick her up and got bitten again. So my dad picked up the bird and she bit through his calluses. This was the bird I wanted and so we took her home. I named her Picasso after Pablo Picasso and also because she dunked her colored pellets in her water. Since her water looked like paint. It took me a month to tame down the little she devil. But when I did, I was rewarded with a bird beyond my wildest dreams! She's fierce loyal, quite hilarious, and amazingly sweet. She says: Pretty girl, Hi Paulie, Hello, Kiss Kiss. Laughs like a human. Makes numerous cockatiel and budgies because she listens to her roommates too much. She's been working on some new words. We are trying to learn Momma's Girl. Picasso has four other bird brothers and sisters. Peaches and Pedro (the budgies) and Paulie and Hedwig (the cockatiels). One doggie sister, Baby. And one fishie brother my male betta Fishie.
