Raju, the Pet of the Day
Name: Raju
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Ringneck Parrot
Home: Rawalpindi, Punjab, Pakistan
   Raju is a very clever bird. He can speak 50 to 60 words in Urdu. He is allowed to fly freely in open, and he always comes back on my call. He is smart and never eats anything from strangers. Loves to go riding, but only with me, on a bike.

    My pet Raju is very loving and loves to be my family, he mostly loves to play with my son who is almost of same age. Sometimes he steals my kid's toys and leaves him crying. Raju can speak only memorized sentences so far, but he understands everything.

    I have been taking care of Raju since he was only five days old. His parents live with me as well. There were four chicks, but the parents were inexperienced and not feeding them properly, so this siblings died. I then took Raju out from nest and handfed him. So he is very bonded to me, as well as being a big, handsome bird now.
