Star, the Pet of the Day
Name: Star
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Budgie
Home: New Jersey, USA
   Star is a four-year-old albino parakeet. I got her in the summer of 2003 and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made. Star is the light of my life. Every time I walk into the room she bursts out into chirps. She's such a little sweetheart. She has bonded with me the most out of everyone in my family. Although she doesn't come out of her cage, I can easily pet her and hand feed her. She will not except anyone hand-feeding her except me and she refuses to take it. She trusts me the most out of everyone in the house and she's always so cheerful.

    Star certainly has a lot of personality. She is very funny when she wants to, and also very smart. She changes moods very quickly. One minute, she is making angry budgie sounds and when you say "Star" she'll chirp happily at you. She enjoys hearing birds outside in the morning and when she hears them she goes nuts. Star knows her name, and often tries to talk. She has not succeeded yet in doing so, but she might soon. She also knows how to open the cage door, and anytime you hear the clanking you know exactly what it is. Star opening the door. She can't open fully but she's smart so she may find out how to one day. She is also very hammy. If you take out the camera she gets all excited because she knows what's to come. A photo shoot, of course!

    A lot of people are fascinated by her color, I've been told countlessly how rare she is. They think that's the reason I picked her out. In all honestly, I don't care about her color. It may be nice to have a rare colored bird sometimes, but I love her more for her personality. She's the cutest and funniest bird I've ever had the honor of owning. She is my heart bird, and I wouldn't trade her for anything.
