||Three and a half years old|

is Holly, our Quaker parrot. She is a wonderful pet. She is very
busy all the time with her toys, including a few pieces of dowel we had
cut for some perches. She carries them around and pokes them between
the cage bars until she gets them just where she wants them, then, moves
them again to another spot. She also has a group of four plastic rings
that are hung from her swing and she grabs the end one and hooks it to a
side of her cage, then unhooks it and moves it to another side.
She loves to dance and sings when music is played. She especially loves
Kenney Chesney. When my husband comes home from work she say "Hello
cutie" if I come home I just get the standard "Hello". When we leave
the house through the front door she says "Bye Bye."
She says "what are you doing?" until you tell her and if you ask her
what she's doing she says "I don't know". She calls the kitty then
meows, she barks and also coughs to get attention because my husband
coughs from having asthma. Once I stayed with my mom after a surgery
and I when I came home from a doctor visit, she said "Your bird is so sick,
she has been coughing since you left."
She is very funny and sweet, she tells the dogs to "Get down" and "Stop
it" She has learned many whistles including the wolf whistle. We have only
had her about three and a half years and she began talking immediately.
Recently she even asked me "What are you thinking about?"
I never thought a bird would have so much personality, but she says the
right things at the right times and amazes us daily.
