My name is Chi-Chi, and I am a blissful Sun Conure. My favorite thing to
do is to call out (scream) to my owners to get their attention every minute of
the day. I share my home with Hemi (a big dog), Oscar (Blue Fronted Amazon)
and Satyr (cat) - but I rule the house. When I take a break from screaming
for attention, I like to cuddle in my bird buddy (that's a bird tent). I am
very attached to one person even though there are two people in my household.
I freak-out when I see a broom, a vacuum cleaner, paper towels or a feather
duster. Even though I like a clean house and cage, I have to scream at these
items to make it clear to my owners that I do not like these things. I do not
talk, but I can blow kisses. I also enjoy taking baths in the sink or the
shower. I have trained myself not to poop on my owners. My favorite treats
are oranges, pine nuts and peanuts. My owners try to sneak in vegetables in
my treats, but I throw them in the bottom of my cage. My other favorite
activity is to cuddle with my owners in their fleece blanket. I get so cozy
and warm, and sometimes I take a nap nestled in the blanket. I have adopted
my owners as part of my flock. We have become very dependent on each other
and I don't know what I would do without them.
