Bigboy, the Pet of the Day
Name: Bigboy
Age: Three and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pacific Parrotlet
Home: Bronx, New York, USA
   Introducing Bigboy, the three and a half year old Pacific Parrotlet. Bigboy is only 4" long, but he has the spirit and character of one much larger, so that is how he got his name. We never tire of his antics, and he never seems to tire of us. His greatest joy is to have the back of his neck scritched. He could sit still for hours with his eyes half closed just enjoying the spa treatment. He also loves tissues. Beware, in our house, if you have to sneeze. You must pass the "tissue guard" to get a tissue from "his" box. You must be brave. That sneeze could be very costly to your fingers. He will make sure we are all safe from those nasty, renegade tissues! Actually Bigboy is a very sweet birdie. We know this because he will tell us. He has a vocabulary of about 32 words. My favorite sayings of his are: "I'm so smart" which he says whenever he does something new!, and "Sweet Birdie" which he says whenever he is bored and wants attention. He used to say "Bigboy is a good boy", but now he only says "Bigboy is a..." I think he wants us to fill in the blank with a more interesting adjective. Whatever we fill the blank with, Bigboy is the love of our lives, and we are amazed at the affect one so small can have on all he meets. He is a real sweetheart, a "lovebird" in a small package!
