everybody, I am the Howie bird, also known as Fufu the Wonder Bat,
or Fufu the Hanging Rat. I am a Moluccan Cockatoo and aren't I the most
beautiful bird you have ever seen? (I am a little bit of a braggart).
But don't let my beauty fool you, I do not make a very good pet for most
people. I am demanding, noisy, loud, very dusty and can be very
territorial! I don't mean to, but I have bitten people when they get too
close to my mommy, I'm real sorry after, but that's the way I am. I have
to protect her.
I have lived with the same family all my life and I have my own room and
all the toys one bird can chew up. When those toys are gone, mommy buys me
more. I can't begin to tell you how much I love sweet potatoes and
pasta, and my mommie (bless her heart, cooks them for me) and I have
juice and toast, most everyday for breakfast, and then my dish is full
of good birdie pellets. (Even my diet is demanding.)
I live with two cats and they just run and hide when I get near as I love
to drag them around by their tails. I hope I don't sound like to much of
a meanie, I love to snuggle with my mommie, and I am precious but I am a
handful, but my mommie loves me and we will be together for the next 50
years and least!
P.S. I forgot to tell you I even have my own special vet, all she sees
Hi from the Howie bird!!!
