Peanut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Peanut
Age: Two years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cinnamon-Pied Cockatiel
Home: Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is my cockatiel, his name is Peanut. He is such a loveable pet. He loves to give me kisses and thank me for them. His one and only word that he knows is "thank you." When he was about four months old, I always thanked him for his kisses. So from that point on thats all he says.

    Peanut is extremely curious about his surrounding. If you call him "prettybird," he thanks you. But if you call him prettybird too many times, he hangs upside down (Like a bat) with his wings out on his perch just to show everyone how much of a prettybird he is. He refuses to go to sleep at night until I give him at least three goodnight kisses, which he gives in return. And in the morning when I uncover him, The first thing he wants is his kisses. He also loves to play Peek-a-Boo.

    He is very affectionate but to me only. And he is also very protective of me. When my daughter pretends to tap me on my arm, he hisses and lunges at her. When he wants to be taken out of his cage, he rings his bell. He is a fun, loveable pet!
