Avo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Avo
Age: Five years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lutino Cockatiel
Home: San Diego, California, USA
   I adopted Avo in January from another family. This family had found him five years ago in an avocado tree, this is how Avo got his name. The family searched for Avo's owners but no one claimed him so they kept him. The family decided after five years they could no longer keep Avo so I adopted him.

    He's a sweet guy, loves to sit on my shoulder or on the back of the couch while we watch TV. His favorite thing to do though is sing! and sing loudly. He loves it even better if I will whistle with him. We have a game I call "Dueling Whistles", kinda like dueling banjo's. Avo will whistle his little tune, then I will do mine, then Avo will try to out do me, then I whistle again, and so on. He just loves it when I play that game with him. Avo also very much enjoys having his head rubbed and will move his head side to side making sure I don't miss a spot. Avo also likes to chew on wood and is currently doing his best to whittle down his wood play gym.

    Avo is such a character, and I feel so fortunate that he came into my life. He's definitely made things more interesting around here.
