Joey, the Pet of the Day
Name: Joey
Age: 30 years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Amazon Parrot
Home: Edmonton, Alberta, Canada
   Joey is such a beautiful shy boy. It took over a year before he would accept us into his life. He still only accepts his mummy. The rest of the people in his life, he tolerates. His vocabulary needs work, he must be the exception for Amazon Parrots. When he does talk, all you hear is "Hello" forever and ever. Bubble baths in the sink make his day ... showers will do if really necessary but he's a bath boy. His biggest thrill is playing with the Cat...and the cat tolerates it. He's been a real treasure in our home, we are so lucky to have him.

    Our little sweetheart does not like being by himself, one day I was in bed with a migraine, when I woke up he was laying beside me in the bed making his contented noises. He had walked all the way up the staircase to the second floor and into the master bedroom.

    For some strange reason he never flies. He walks around the house regularly. He plays with the cat but never flies at him. Another odd thing he loves to do is sit on the edge of our whirlpool bathtub. He loves the vibration of the water/motor; he is tempted to go in but hasn't done so as yet. We have a rain type shower head in the shower, now that interests him, he must think he is in the Amazon rain forest. He is a treasure to behold.
