Tom-Tom, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tom-Tom
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Buenos Aires, Argentina
   This is our Tom-Tom, a playful and funny bird who lives a spoiled and pampered life. He enjoys all kind of foods, and being kissed constantly, time after time. But he also has a distinct personality, he chooses who will be allowed to play with him. If he doesn't like you, you could be severely injured with this strong beak! But if he loves you, he will be the sweetest pet you can imagine.

    Tom-Tom loves to eat, and eat, and eat... (like you can see in the picture), and whistle a lot of tunes, like Argentinian tangos and national songs. He is a really patriotic bird, since he also enjoys sharing "mate" (an argentinian infusion made with herbs and hot water in a special cup). He gets really angry if he's ignored during the "mate sessions"! He is a really special pet bird, that's why we think he deserves to be honored.
