Jaffa, the Pet of the Day
Name: Jaffa
Age: Five months old
Gender: Male
Kind: Lutino cockatiel
Home: South Australia, Australia
   Quiet? Shy? No personality? Absolutely not! Jaffa, the five month old cockatiel is everything but quiet and shy. He is lively, entertaining, sociable and can be very demanding at times if he doesn't get his corn and carrots at the right time of day! Jaffa loves head scratches, any sort of attention- even if we are scolding him for tearing things up- and he loves to play all day long.

    Jaffa loves eating all sorts of fruits and veggies, nuts, egg and biscuit mix, and even his very own toys! His favorite toy is his duck chew toy which he's chewed so much it can't be recognized as a duck anymore. Jaffa's favorite time of day is when he gets to cruise around on my shoulder, or any other shoulder he can get hold of. Jaffa loves to play all sorts of games, including "find the pen under a heap of ribbon", "climb up the ladder", wolf whistle sing offs with me and he loves to play hide and seek. Jaffa also loves to climb around his jungle gym set and swing off ropes, performing acrobatics! He also loves to walk around the house and climb up anyone's legs, whenever he gets the chance. He loves my mirror and he loves to check himself out in it. Jaffa's mortal enemy is my mobile phone as I am often using it and he gets very jealous if I am paying more attention to it than to him!

    I bought Jaffa three months ago when he was just eight weeks old. I had wanted a cockatiel for a long time, and when I saw the young 'tiels all playing around their cage at the breeders, I just had to have one. It was Jaffa that caught my eye instantly, with his bright colors and placid nature, at the time. After I brought him home it has been endless fun and companionship with him! I love him so much and wouldn't trade him for the world.
