Paulie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Paulie
Age: Ten years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Illinois, USA
   Paulie came to me in a very special way, four days after my 9th birthday I was given a box with screens on each side. I opened the box and there was a baby cockatiel who was promptly named Paulie. Paulie connected with me almost instantly and we became inseparable. I love Paulie very much and he is a one of a kind bird. Paulie's favorite activities include eating Cheerios, nibbling on chips, and talking to himself in his mirror. Paulie can also knock on the bars of his cage on command, say "Hi birdie" and imitate the alarm system. Paulie and I have been together for ten years and I now consider him my little brother (with feathers of course!)

    Paulie can be affectionate when he wants to and is generally a very sweet bird. Paulie does not know any tricks but he can tell what kind of chips you are eating by the sound of the crackle of the bag. Lays potato chips are his favorite and if he sees you eating them he will stick his little bird beak out of one of the bars of his cage or start singing until you give him a tiny piece. Paulie also loves getting his picture taken and firmly believes that the vacuum cleaner is another bird because of the noise it makes.

   I love him very much.
