Mikki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mikki
Age: Thirteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Blue Fronted Amazon
Home: Dar Es Salaam, Tanzania
   Hello, my name is Mikki. I am a world traveler! I was born in South Africa, then my mummy and daddy moved to Germany for two years, and now we live in Dar Es Salaam Tanzania. It is very, very hot here, so I love to take a bath to cool off a bit. I must say, I really do prefer living in Africa. Europe was a little too cold for my liking. I love to eat banana and other fruit. I can also talk a little bit. I say "hello," "who's there" "naughty" and I can bark like a dog - fooled the neighbors once or twice!

    My favorite person is my daddy. I love to sit on his shoulder while he is reading, and then I try to groom him.

    Mikki is very affectionate to my husband, but not really to me. When my husband comes home from work, he hears him in the driveway, and says to our dog: "Emma, who's there" and then they both run to the door to great him.

    Personality-wise, he is very patient with little children. He would never bite them. And he loves Emma our little Jack Russell. The both sit on my husbands lap, and Mikki sometimes gives Emma a good grooming.
