Mékhé, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mékhé
Age: Twelve weeks old
Gender: Male
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Oklahoma, USA
   This is Mékhé, he is a twelve week old Senegal Parrot and is the biggest clown I know! His name comes from a city in Senegal and we pronounce it MeeKee. In the short time we have had him he has captured our hearts and made each day brighter. I got him when he was six weeks old and he has successfully weaned himself. The picture is the "Please Mommy" pose he does when he wants to be held. He just learned to make kissy noises to get my attention. He loves to cuddle and preening his family and is quite the acrobat jumping, hanging and is not afraid of anything but an ear of corn! (silly bird!!) He has a handicapped sister named Mali and he is very loving and gentle to her and will share his food with her. But he can also be very bold and will try to attack my dog Scooter if he gets too close! He loves coming into my bed to play and likes to burrow his head in my husband's armpit to when he is ready for a nap! (eewww!) He also loves to "help" mommy type. He is a bundle of joy and energy and I can't imagine my life without him!
