Mango, the Pet of the Day
Name: Mango
Age: Eight months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Sun Conure
Home: Houston, Texas, USA
   Hello humans, I have a wonderful family of one dog, one fish, one cockatiel, and me, a sun conure named Mango. I'm going to tell you about my life. My mom will take me to shops to let me out of the cage, but with her on her shoulder or finger. I love going to the pet stores to see other birds. Everyone says something like "look at that bird!" Then my eleven-year-old mom will brag on and on about me. I wear a birddiaper from which is great for a hand fed bird like me. It keeps away poop from me and my mom that goes in a special pouch. So anyway I love to go shopping. Some tricks that my mom loves to show off that I can roll over on my back or hang up-side down by one leg. I can't talk yet but I'm trying to say "Mango" and "what you doin?" My mom repeats me words and tricks every day.

    Almost every night I go with mommy under the blanket and fall asleep (after I play) with my neck down on my mommy's tummy, making noises that mommy thinks are so cute. I love to be petted and cuddled! She says she loves summer so we can play non-stop instead of just some a day after school. I love fruit and my mommy, only. I can't wait until one day almost all my feathers will be yellow-orange instead of green mostly. I will have a happy life.
