Tut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Tut
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Amazon Blue Fronted Parrot
Home: Sao Paulo, Sao Paulo, Brazil
   My parrot is special because he is one in a million. He was abused and was almost killed by his previous owner. A friend saw a man hitting the cage with a branch and asked him to stop, he said he was only going to stop when the bird was quiet. well, to make a long story short my friend offered some money to buy him and the man said ok. Later that day she said she had a special gift for me and when I arrived her house my precious Tut was there waiting for me! He changed my life.

    He is now a happy, healthy bird. He loves female singers and sings with them. As for food, he loves fruits and corn - as you can see him enjoying corn in his picture.

    He loves classical music and seems to sing following the rhythm. It is adorable to see, I have a video on Youtube (unfortunately he is scared of my camera and didn't sing as much as he usually sings). He learned to call my dog "Kramer," and it is very funny to listen that little bird saying a name so clear and with the same intonation I use.

    His personality is adorable, absolutely friendly but ... he only loves me, his Mom (not his Dad! LOL!) He is affectionate and I just don't know how he feels when I am going to leave home. When I am going to leave home, he almost goes crazy and this is the only time he screams. He changed my life because he is my companion, since I stay at home most of the day we are always together. And as I don't have human children, he is my baby!!
