handsome little guy is Horus. I never thought a parakeet would have
as much personality as he does. He's a little clown, who loves attention.
When we have company over he chatters constantly, sometimes in a low,
mumbling voice, like he wants to be part of the conversation. He also
attacks the toys in his cage, as if he's trying to show people how tough he is.
Horus loves millet and will come out of his cage to get some. He also
loves treat sticks, and will ignore his food if one is hanging in his
cage. He lives with another parakeet, Boomer, and gets jealous if we talk
to her and not him. He'll preen our hair and play with my jewelry if I'm
wearing any. Horus is a great pet, he's small, clean, friendly and
adorable. I can't imagine not having him around.
