About Us
Louie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Louie
Age: One year old
Gender: Male
Kind: Quaker Parrot
Home: Cincinnati, Ohio, USA
   This is my Christmas bird, Louie. I call him that because last Christmas I had just lost my bearded dragon Gracie after seven years of loving her and I didn't think I could have ever wanted another pet for a long, long time. But my mom convinced me to go and look at some birds since I was thinking of getting one before Gracie died. We went to this one pet store and there was Louie sitting in his cage all alone. We got him out and he snuggled up to me and would not let go when we wanted to leave. After some prodding and pleading my mom agreed to buy Louie, so the day before Christmas we drove up there and got Louie before anybody could take him. And since then Louie has brought so much joy and laughter into my life.

    Even though we have had him for a year now Louie has learned so many tricks. He loves giving kisses and playing peek-a-boo. When I come home from school he runs to the edge of the cage and screams Hi Baby! while trying to lean over the side of the cage to get some love. He also loves saying Bye Bye and Don't bite over and over again. He has learned to call our other bird Pudgy by saying "Come here Pudgy" and learned to mimic Pudgy's calls and sayings. Louie loves cheering on football teams especially the Buckeyes and the Bengals. He hasn't quite got down the Go Buckeyes yet but loves saying Who Dey any chance he can get. Louie has learned to mimic our laughter and even our coughing which he loves to do when he hears us making those sounds. He loves eating human food especially yogurt and gets excited every time he sees the cup. He loves being scritched and even purrs when he likes it. I could go on and on about Louie and how happy he makes us and how much I love him. Louie is my crazy baby bird who I love so much.
