Lucy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Lucy
Age: Fifteen months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Red-sided Eclectus
Home: Poughkeepsie, New York, USA
   Lucy is a red-sided eclectus. I live with her in her home in Poughkeepsie. Lucy is one of the smartest birds I have ever had the pleasure of being owned by. I truly believe she has a bond and is in touch with my mental health. It seems on days that have been extremely difficult at work, she wants to cuddle give kisses and play gently. On other days when the day had no challenges she tends to be a bit more feisty, which I love. We wrestle for a long portion of the time we spend together. She also seems to have picked up a great sense of humor, she will do something that she knows annoys me and then laugh a hardy laugh. When she does this I just can't do anything but have a hardy laugh with her. Let's not forget what a prima dona she is. When she eats while I am present, she waits for me to wipe her beak with a cloth napkin. She will not accept paper mind you. I also love the fact that she sings happy birthday to me every day!
