Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Eleven months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Parrotlet
Home: Canada
   Buddy is our handsome Parrotlet. I never thought I would become so attached to "a bird." We bought Buddy from a breeder at four months old so he was already tame and well socialized. He makes our family laugh every day and I'm so amazed how smart this little guy is, after all he is a Parrot. We love Buddy so much and I couldn't imagine life without him. Buddy loves to come out of his cage and be with "The Flock" (me,my husband and our daughters.) He loves having his head scratched and will turn his head towards your fingers so you get "just the right spot'. Buddy can give kisses and makes the kiss sound at the same time, he will laugh when I laugh and we're teaching him to dance. The girls really get him going making funny sounds and he chirps a mile a minute as he runs after them its so cute.

    Buddy loves to join us in the morning for breakfast but his rule is Buddy must sample everybody else's breakfast too. He starts off our day right, that's for sure. Buddy also loves his cage and toys. Whenever he does something funny or acrobatic in his cage we all laugh and make a big deal out of it. Well, Buddy remembers the reaction from us so does his little tricks again and again and again. Buddy will also snuggle close to your face and lay down with you. Don't ever think birds don't cuddle. Buddy is bringing us so much joy and love.
