Smokey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Smokey
Age: Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Beverly, Massachusetts, USA
   This is Smokey, he is a four-year-old cockatiel and a joy to be around. Together we live in Beverly Massachusetts. Smokey is special for many reasons, but most importantly I am in a wheelchair and Smokey makes me have to get out of bed, into his room, take him out of the cage and play. This is good for him, yes, but even better for me as it makes me use muscles in my arms and upper body that would not normally be used.

    Smokey has an attitude all his own, he makes me work for his respect, and I work hard for it. But to hear him whistle, or howl, or say "I Love You" makes it all worthwhile! He is not just another pretty face - though he is a beauty - Smokey is my bird, and my friend.
