Petey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Petey
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green-cheeked Conure
Home: Livingston, New Jersey, USA
   This is Petey, my spoiled Green-cheeked Conure, who has undoubtedly become part of my family! I bought Petey at a Florida flea market when he was only six weeks old. I hand fed him when he was a baby and that definitely hasn't changed! Petey does everything with me from taking a shower to house cleaning to running quick errands in the car. (He loves to sight-see!)

    Getting Petey to go to sleep has become a challenge in itself. If he's not ready for bed, he'll definitely let you know first by asking politely, in a calm little voice, "Petey... step up," but if you choose not to respond to him "Petey step up" will get louder and louder, turning into a pitiful cry of desperation. I love my little man to death and he's the best thing that's happened to me!
