Buddy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Buddy
Age: Four and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Red Sided Eclectus
Home: Pretoria, Gauteng, South Africa
   Hi, my name is Buddy. I live with my parents Egmont and Corlea! My dad bought me when I was just five weeks old, and when I met him, I knew that I was going to be the happiest parrot alive! He bought me during winter, so my favorite time was snuggling with him while we watch TV!

    Two years after my daddy bought me, he met my mom, Corlea. At first she was so scared to touch me, but I realized that she was scared, so I slowly but surely snuggled up to her and before she could blink, we were buddies! Now she can't get enough of me!

    I love singing and talking and sometimes I can hear my mom say: "Wow, I think he swallowed a tape recorder!" I love swimming and I shower with my dad every night. I actually never knew that I was a bird, until I heard someone saying, Oh he's a pretty bird! Then I realized I was not human! I always thought I was human because I walk around the house like I own it, I sleep with my parents, I shower with them! But that's okay, I don't mind being a bird, because I'm the luckiest bird alive!

    What makes me so special? I bring happiness and love to our house, and we are after all, part of God's creatures!
