Squirt, the Pet of the Day
Name: Squirt
Age: Two and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Peach-Fronted Conure
Home: Denver, Colorado, USA
   This is Squirt, my peach-fronted conure. I got him from a rescue group about a year ago. While birds aren't for everybody (loud noises and cleaning cages just sort of go with the territory) he is a pretty laid back bird. He can laugh, give kisses, say "Whatcha' Doin'?" and "I Love You". He also likes to dance.

    What makes Squirt so special is that he's just like a little kid. Some days he likes carrots - some days he doesn't. If he's talking up a storm and I put the phone up for him to talk into it he gets totally silent. He also doesn't like big nuts in his treat bowl, so if there are any in there he'll throw them out on the floor in a big commotion. He takes showers and shows off for new people. I'm not always sure that getting a bird was the best decision I've ever made, but now I love him enough that it doesn't really matter.
