Coconut, the Pet of the Day
Name: Coconut
Age: Eleven years old
Gender: Female
Kind: Goffins Cockatoo
Home: Ronkonkoma, New York, USA
   Coconut lives with me and my other birds in our home in Ronkonkoma, NY. I adopted Coconut from my moms cousin Jimmy, he was dying of throat cancer and couldn't give her as much attention. He gave her to me because he knew that I could take care of her. She was a feather plucker and was missing feathers on her legs, chest, and back. I took her home and she bonded to me immediately. Now eighteen months later, the feathers have grown back and she is still such a joy.

    Her favorite activity is dancing, yes she dances. She will dance to any song, and has her own style, she will also dance when she is taking a bath in her water dish. If she sees someone new she walks around her cage strutting, like she's all tough. She loves to go outside and play in our peach trees, I'm there to supervise of course. She will also play catch with you, she will throw a ball to you and you throw it back to her. She is such a bundle of energy, always ready to play. Don't let that picture fool you, she rarely stops moving. I love her so much she is such a joy in my life now that I can't imagine it without her.
