Luigi, the Pet of the Day
Name: Luigi
Age: Seven years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Umbrella Cockatoo
Home: Waldwick, New Jersey, USA
   Luigi, a.k.a. Lulu, is an umbrella cockatoo from Waldwick, NJ. He lives with his three human brothers and human mom and dad. What makes Lu special is that, until recently, his name was Lulu - it wasn't just a nickname - and he was called "she"! He was probably thinking that his family was wacky for the past seven years! Finally, the truth was discovered and now his family is trying very hard not to slip and say "good girl" any longer.

    Lu is very affectionate and requires that you pet him with both hands simultaneously, making it very difficult to accomplish anything other than petting Lu! He doesn't see this as a problem! What could be more important than petting him? He screams when he wants out of his cage. When that doesn't work, he says "hello" in a sweet voice. I guess he figures a different approach is worth trying.
