Timber, the Pet of the Day
Name: Timber
Age: Three years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Pacific Parrotlet
Home: New Hampshire, USA
   This is my little friend, Timber. He is a male pacific parrotlet, and is three years old. He was given to me by a very caring person, after another bird of mine passed away. I was devastated, and little Timber came along and helped so much to ease my pain.

    When Timber first came to me, he was seven months old, and was struggling with a neurological disorder. He would easily lose his balance and fall, and had a poor grip in his right foot. He is also missing a toenail on one of his toes. No one knows why he had this problem, but it didn't matter to me. He was the sweetest, gentlest parrotlet I'd ever met. I fell in love with him instantly. Now, three years later, his problem is nearly gone. He never falls anymore, and although he is cautious and careful in how he moves, he has no other signs of his neuro issue at all. He is just a perfect little bird. And he is so tiny and adorable!

    Timber loves to sit really close to my face and cuddle. He loves to have his head and cheeks rubbed. He is very friendly with everyone, and even says "pretty pretty" when he is feeling chatty. Timber is a very special little guy, and I adore him. And I will always be thankful to the kind person who gave him to me, just when I needed him. He was the perfect gift to heal a broken heart.
