||One year old|
||Congo African Grey Parrot|
||Johannesburg, South Africa|
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.
