Paulie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Paulie
Age: Nine months old
Gender: Female
Kind: Senegal Parrot
Home: Los Angeles, California, USA
 
   Paulie is a beautiful nine-month old Senegal Parrot full of charm, love, and playfulness. Ever since, I saw her at the pet store she won me over with her charm, she greeted me with a whistle and some cute clicking noises to get my attention. I whistled to her and she responded back to me so I asked the pet store attendant about her and she said that she was tame and friendly. She took her out so I could pet her and hold her, and when I had her in my hands, Paulie began bobbing her head up and down, whistling, and made kissing sounds, so right there and then I knew that she was going to be a wonderful addition to my family. That day, without thinking twice, I decided that she had to go home with me.

    As you can see, Paulie does not have any nails because they were bit off by her parent birds when she was just a hatchling. Not having nails does not stop her clownish personality in any way, she is still the same way as if she had them. She enjoys being held on her back for a good belly rub and scratch, she likes to be upside down, gives kisses, whistles, loves being around people, adores head scratches and of course, being the center of attention. This is why she is very special to my family and I. She brightens our day every day and I wouldn't change her for anything, and I thank God that I came across her that day.
