Commando, the Pet of the Day
Name: Commando
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Miligold Macaw
Home: Pacifica, California, USA
   This is Commando. He is our nine year old (two years to us) miligold macaw (cross between a military macaw and a blue and gold macaw). He has moved around the country for a couple of years and here is his story:

    He was hatched then put in a Petco for sale (in Florida) when a couple bought him and moved to somewhere in California. They then had a couple of kids and Commando was left out of things and became a little aggressive (but who wouldn't be if you were locked in a cage all day!). They couldn't handle him and so Commando was donated to the local Humane Society. After his being there for six months, I came across his picture as I was looking at dogs with my friend. I knew I had to see him and one week later he was ours and loving his new fun-filled home!

    He now pursues singing to his favorite "big kid show", Wonder Pets. He loves fruit, like melons and oranges, and wants a bite of whatever you're having. He loves to play "blankie" where he is on a blanket and I will take a big spoon from the kitchen and preen his feathers. Any trusting bird should love this because it makes them less itchy and a lot calmer so the new feathers can grow in. I love my Commando!
