Neon, the Pet of the Day
Name: Neon
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parakeet
Home: Rochester, New York, USA
   Neon came into my life on January 2, 1999. I bought him as a present for my husband, who was very sad after the loss of his first parakeet, Mr. Cheepers. Neon is a wonderful pet and has filled our lives with joy. He has 25-30 word vocabulary, including phrases such as "Mommy's pretty bird," "How's my birdie," "Budgie bird," and "Hey birds." He shares a room in our Rochester, NY home with our four-year-old conure Kiwi, in addition to his team of plastic penguin friends.

    Neon enjoys spending time playing with his penguins, eating mashed potatoes and talking to his shadow. I've never met a bird quite like this, and we cherish every day with him!
