Indy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Indy
Age: Five years old
Gender: Female
Kind: White-bellied Caique
Home: Dayton, Ohio, USA
   This is Indy. She's five years old, and loves to take showers under the faucet. We took her into our home after the family that had her the first few years decided she was too large a responsibility for them. She has a scar on her beak from an old sore that was not treated, and her nostril is completely closed on that side. She doesn't mind; it makes it even more fun to take showers, since no water will go in her nostril on that side!

    One of Indy's favorite games is hide-and-seek. She'll pull newspaper over her body and lay still for a while, only peeping quietly if you call her name. She loves to bounce up and down on her large sisal rope, and will bounce and chirp along with you if you sing. She "plays dead" in the palm of your hand, and will hang upside down from your finger like a bat. What a show-off! We love this little clown!
