Stumpy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Stumpy
Age: Four years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Budgie
Home: Queens, New York, USA
   Stumpy is a gray-wing budgie from Queens, New York. You might wonder about Stumpy's name, or perhaps you have already noticed she only has one foot! She was born in our neighbor's house next door, and before her feathers grew in, she had an accident. She got a bunch of wet cotton stuck to her body, and when the neighbor tried to clean it off of her, he accidently ripped off her foot! He took care of it, though, and applied Antibiotic cream to it every day and it healed nicely. Ever since then though, the playful moniker "Stumpy" just sort of stuck around with her.

    Stumpy doesn't let her handicap affect her life. Nowadays, she gets around even better than her two cagemates, who have both their feet intact, and she quickly became boss of the cage. She is very feisty and likes getting her own way.
