Fred, the Pet of the Day
Name: Fred
Age: 40 years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Red-lored Amazon
Home: Athens, Alabama, USA
   Fred is quite a character! She can talk, (Yes, Fred is a girl), saying things like "Hey Fred!" "Hey Pretty Girl" "Hello Fred" and she can whistle the Andy Griffith song, do wolf whistles, and many other whistles. Fred will also bark when she is mad!

    Fred was a wild-caught bird and then was a pet and then a breeder so she hasn't had an easy life and has been passed around. But Fred and I have bonded like crazy (she doesn't care much for men though but she tolerates my husband (Daddy) nicely) and she is now in her forever home where she is spoiled and loved daily.

    Fred will ride around on my shoulder all day if I let her and loves to ride in the car. She also loves the vacuum, and will do just about anything for a peanut. Fred lives in Athens, Alabama with four other parrots, two dogs, and her Mommy and Daddy.
