Squiggey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Squiggey
Age: Seven and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Hoboken, New Jersey, USA
   Squiggey is a playful, lovable sun conure. He was actually hatched in Florida but has lived most of his life in New York City and Hoboken, NJ. He is a character and quite the urban little guy. He enjoys screaming when he wants attention, taking showers, playing with all his toys, eating pellets, seeds, fruit and vegetables, preening, snuggling and being tickled. If you're lucky, he'll even tickle you back and preen your hair. He blows kisses and says "hello". One of his favorite things is to jump in my terrycloth robe every night before he goes to bed. He stays in there for an hour until we tuck him into his hut. He just can't stop blowing kisses and grinding his beak. He can be territorial around his cage with strangers but he's just a lump of feathers in our hands elsewhere. People may think he's spoiled but he more than makes up for it by making us smile. He's just the best!
