Loki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Loki
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Maximillian Pionus
Home: USA
   Here is my bird, Loki. Loki is a Maximillian Pionus who joined my family in 2001. He is very social and always wants to know what's going on and where everyone is. It's always a pleasure to come home and hear his cheery "hello." He has learned many phrases such as pretty Loki, Loki Poki, Hi Baby, Hey Buddy, Whatayadoin', and Go Navy! He also likes to make sneezing noises to try to get attention when we're not in the room. Recently, since we moved in to a new place and there are new neighbors and noises, Loki has begun to bark. Yes, bark like a small dog. It's very funny.

    Before owning Loki, I never thought birds had any personality. Little did I know each one has its own personality and can be as affectionate as a dog. Loki likes to sit with us on the couch and have his head scratched and rubbed all the time.

    Loki is special because he is a strong little bird. He's lived in six different places with me in the last six years. We have moved from the North on the East Coast, to the Mid-Atlantic, to the West Coast. Each time, Loki has toughed it out, made new friends, and adapted to a new environment.
