Took, the Pet of the Day
Name: Took
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Timneh African Grey Parrot
Home: Tampa, Florida, USA
   Took is the light of my life. He came into my life when he was just a month old. He had yet to sprout feathers and needed hand feedings every few hours. Now, eleven months later, he sports blue-tinted grey feathers and a personality that is hard to keep up with. I had heard that parrots are like toddlers, but I had no idea how true that statement was until Took came into my life. If he is in a bad mood, he will ignore me and throw his toys across the room. When he is in a good mood, he is extremely affectionate and will run across the floor just to give me a quick kiss. He loves to sit on top of my head and preen my hair. He enjoys sitting with me while I'm watching television or on the computer. He is perfectly content just to be around me. My silky terrier, Charlotte, and Took love to chase each other all around the house. They have a love/hate relationship, and it's extremely amusing to watch them interact. His favorite thing to do is roll on his back and chew on bottle caps. I believe that his favorite food would have to be potatoes.
