Max, the Pet of the Day
Name: Max
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Congo African Grey Parrot
Home: Johannesburg, South Africa
   I am pleased to meet you, my name is Max. I moved in with my mommy Michelle when I was two months old, and now at one year old we are having a blast. I love to roam around the flat - I hate the cage, I am forever trying to escape when my mommy puts me to bed.

    I know all the tricks to soften her heart - I say words very clearly and I roar when given water out of a glass - we have lots of laughs. I mimic her laughter, sneeze and cough. I love to wolf whistle and make kissing sounds early in the morning after waking up.

    I love to eat popcorn while watching TV and when I get tired, mommy puts me under the blanket with her and I sleep with my legs kicked to the side until it is bedtime.

    To make my day, give me monkey nuts hidden in a toy. Rooibos tea is my favorite drink, I put my whole head inside the mug and gulp it quick-quick. The beep beeps of the microwave and the kettle boiling is like music to my ears - it always means food is on the way.

    When I am very excited I flap my wings, screams and say every word I know for attention! This is me in an nutshell, I am living the life.
