Romeo, the Pet of the Day
Name: Romeo
Age: Deceased, Four years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Budgie
Home: Kettleby, Canada
   I would like to honor my little budgie Romeo. Unfortunately Romeo died at the young age of four. We aren't sure why, but our vet said most likely a heart attack while he was sleeping, and there was nothing we could have done. I have two other budgies Boo and Gigi, but neither compared to my sweet Romeo. He was the prettiest sky-blue color, as you can see in the picture. We got him from a breeder; he was hand raised and such a cutie pie!

    On the way home in the car, he sat on my finger and looked out the window the whole way! Once home, I'd open the door to his cage and he'd hop onto my finger so he could get some head scratchies. He'd sit on my shoulder for hours on end, playing with my earrings or necklace. He loved taking baths in the sink; he'd slide in from the side, then drink and splash around in the water. His favorite treat was spray millet; I've never seen a bird consume something so fast! I truly loved that bird and I'll never forget him.
