Kramer, the Pet of the Day
Name: Kramer
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Cheek Conure
Home: Butler, Pennsylvania, USA
   This is our green cheek conure Kramer. He's been with us for six months now. He shares our home with his dog and cat buddies. Kramer is our first bird. We wanted something small, rather quiet, and very friendly. Kramer fits the bill perfectly! When Kramer hears the door open when we get home from work he starts squawking until we come see him. When he knows we can see him he rolls onto his back so we'll come pet him. He even sleeps in his tent on his back! He always wants to be around his people. I say "his" people, because he is very weary of strangers. He gives strange people a little nip when he feels uncomfortable. Kramer is also a big shower fan. He sits on his shower perch and just preens away. I was very surprised to see how well this little bird handles himself. If our 90-pound Doberman gets a little rough with him, he'll just chase him and nip at his nose! We get a good laugh out of that. We're very happy that we adopted Kramer!
