Ginger and Fred, the Pet of the Day
Name: Ginger, Fred
Age: Eighteen months old
Gender: Female, Male
Kind: Lovebirds
Home: Lisbon, Portugal
   Ginger and Fred were born in Netherlands, but they have lived in Lisbon, Portugal, for one year now. One of the things that fascinated me when I first saw them was the fact that they were always very close to each other, never wanted to be separated. So, I've brought them home and let them fly and play for their happiness.

    Ginger is more aggressive. She doesn't appreciate hands and fingers around her very much. But Fred is very sweet. He comes to our finger, let us hold him and scratch him. He stays very still and he is very smooth. One of the recently acquired abilities is the fact that Ginger can open the cage gate with her beak, put a foot on one side holding the gate, let him out and then, cautiously, move her head under the gate and get out. And they also can get back in too, although they prefer to mess around in the kitchen!
