Prettyboy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Prettyboy
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Budgie
Home: Bradford, New York, USA
   Hi there, my name is Prettyboy. I live in a large family of seven. I've got my mom, her boyfriend, then my oldest sister Jessica, then my oldest brother, Michael, next you got my next older sister Megan, then my younger newborn sister and brother - they're twins.

    I live in a small quite little town, but when you're inside my home its buzzing with activity. It has been really busy since my mom had her twins, I was a little confused and scared at first, because they looked nothing like me! After a while I got used to them, but their crying sometimes kept me up past my bedtime, so I would start squawking to let my mom know.

    In my year and a half that I've lived with my new family I've learned to say some words like, Prettyboy, Prettybird, and Pretty Prettybird. As you can tell I think I'm very pretty, and so does my family. My mom often calls me noisy bird, but I just tell her I'm singing a song.

    Right now my big sister took my favorite mirror away because I was biting really hard. I told her that I was protecting my girlfriend who is, I shall say, very pretty, just like me! I keep squawking to let her know I'm mad, but she}s typing on the computer. I know that if I be good that she'll give it back, then I'll be happy again.

    My most favorite thing to do is go in my sister's bedroom with her and fly around. I love to go and perch on the windows in the summer when she has the screen in. Then I can chirp to all the birds outside. It's really exciting when they fly past the window!

    But I'll never forget one day when my sister had me in her room flying, and I got out. I flew around in the dinning room and in the kitchen, then out the door! At first I was excited, but then I was afraid when I saw all the other birds, so I flew to a tree right next to my house, and chirped really loud. After a little while my big sister Jess found me. They checked me all over to make sure I was all right, and of course I was. I won't do that again!

    Well I've got to go now, it's supper time, and grandma's over. Bye.
