Juju, the Pet of the Day
Name: Juju
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peach-faced lovebird
Home: British Columbia, Canada
   My dad first brought Juju home, and since my sister already had a hamster, Juju became mine. Juju can be sooo cute, but also very annoying. He loves chewing on things, and likes playing with soft, furry things. When he's sleepy, he sometimes goes to sleep hidden inside your hair, or, in my case, on my hand. I have a special way to hold him in my hand, so that he fits right in. I'm the only person he'll allow to do that.

    Anyone could tell that Juju trusts me a lot. My mom says that if I'm not home, he'll search for me, and listen for my voice. He's a very smart bird. He knows that he's not allowed on the kitchen table, so he waits 'till my mom isn't looking and flies onto the table. If my little sister, (who can be kind of mean to him sometimes), reaches out for him, he'll become very aggressive. It's not very possible to sneak up on him, though.

    But what is really annoying to other people are the bird droppings. A while back, he used to jump onto the garbage can, and poop in there, but not anymore. There have been times where Juju flies onto someone who has been mean to him, poops, and then fly away again. I know he's very smart, despite what my sister thinks!
