Skittles, the Pet of the Day
Name: Skittles
Age: Three years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Peach-Faced Lovebird
Home: Copiague, New York, USA
   This is a picture of my lovebird Skittles. I chose that name for her because she has so many different colors. She is very tame and very affectionate. Every morning when I wake up, I call out to her and she wakes right up and starts chirping before I even uncover her cage. She loves to chew on paper towel rolls and occasionally hang out on the bottom of her cage for a quick nap. She was a gift from someone very special to make me feel better about losing another very much loved pet and she sure did that job. Although she can't take the place of that other pet, I love her very much and she's one of the best things I've ever had. Every time I try to show her off to people, she gets very shy and cuddles up by my neck and tries to hide. She loves cameras though, and isn't afraid of them at all, which is why I at least have great pictures I can use to show off of my sweet little bird.
