||Six months old|
bird Jake is very special. When I got him he was very untrusting and
I couldn't even walk up to his cage without him going wild. I slowly
gained his trust by taking him out of the cage and teaching him to "step
up" onto a perch every day. Now he is the most affectionate and amusing
little guy. He loves to be taken out of his cage and perch on anyone!
He will sit on my finger, shoulder, head, knee, or ponytail! He has two
cages. He has a big one for my room, and a small one so he can sit with
us when we eat. He usually just sits on top of the cage though!
When I practice my piano Jake squeaks along with me. Sometimes he wakes
me up in the morning so he can play with me! He comes with me to do my
chores, he sits on a perch in the bathroom when I am getting ready for
the day, and he starts to squeak when I leave the room. We even have to
leave the light and radio on when I go to school so he won't be lonely.
He loves it when I nuzzle him with my face, but he hates being petted!
I love him a lot and hope he is with me for a very long time.
