Phoebe, Beebee, the Pet of the Day
Name: Phoebe, Beebee
Age: 1.5 years, Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: WhiteFace Cockatiel, Parakeet
Home: Orange, California, USA
   My boyfriend and I first bought our Whiteface Cockatiel, Phoebe, when she was about eight months old. She caught our eye at the pet store because of her unusual color. She has since become a member of our family and is very special to us. Phoebe flies to us from her cage and absolutely loves to pound her little beak into the computer keyboard when my boyfriend is hard at work as if to say he's paying too much attention to his machine and not enough to her. Phoebe loves to be cuddled and loves getting kisses on her head, cheeks and wings. Phoebe loves popcorn and the hard shells from japanese peanuts, she also loves to bath in her water container!! She has yet to say any words but she can whistle up a storm if you're talking in front of her.

    Beebee is the adorable parakeet we bought to keep our little Phoebe company and she is the cutest little inquisitive parakeet ever!! Beebee hangs and climbs on anything and is the first to play with new toys in the cage. She loves millet spray and jumping into the water container following Phoebe. BeeBee also loves to preen the top of Phoebe's head and chirps when she is happy and when Phoebe is away from her. Phoebe and Beebee get along wonderfully and cry to each other when they are separated. At times, we have even caught Phoebe feeding Beebee the tougher seeds her little beak can't break. They are the sweetest pair of birds and they bring so much joy to our lives!
