Howie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Howie
Age: Sixteen years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Moluccan Cockatoo
Home: International Falls, Minnesota, USA
   Hello 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 is birdies.

   Hi from the Howie bird!!!
