Angus, the Pet of the Day
Name: Angus
Age: Fifteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lesser Sulfur Crested Cockatoo
Home: Nevada, USA
   This is Angus, my cockatoo. Angus is a special story. He came to us through a coworker's girlfriend who was unable to care for him anymore. Another Cockatoo beat Angus up pretty badly and he had developed a feather picking problem. He also was missing toes because when he was caught in the wild the captors used tar paper to capture him. At first, we were unsure of how long he was going to live. This was six years ago and now he is a healthy, happy, singing bird!

    His favorite thing to do now is watch CSI with my mom while he is being cuddled under the covers. He gives mom "hugs" with his wings and enjoys a good bath now and again (spraying us in the process, of course). We could not ask for a more loving and caring bird, although he is a bit unsure of strangers, but we don't blame him one bit for that.
