Mindy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mindy
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Pacific Parrotlet
Home: Port Moody, British Columbia, Canada
   I would like to introduce Mindy (one Animaniac for sure), a Pacific Parrotlet, the smallest kind of parrot in the world. This creature stole my heart from the moment I saw her at the pet store. I bought her in spite of my hubby's tantrum not to bring another pet in the house. You should have seen how he melted after ... now Mindy is Daddy's girl and the love is mutual. Her biggest problem are the sudden mood swings 'cause she can bite like crazy. We cannot discipline her ... how the heck can you discipline 20 grams of green feathers.

    She loves car rides, visiting friends and seeing new places. Mindy hides in my hair and pokes her little head out from time to time only to get the location. Her feet are so small that she can barely hold on to your fingers, that's why pinkies are the best for a perch.

    Don't think that she doesn't have enemies ... and those are ... The yellow plastic gloves. There must have been some kind of an incident in her past involving yellow gloves because she simply goes nuts. She is convinced they are evil.

    Mindy is small, green, bossy, bully and we are crazy for her.
