||Four years old|
||Orange Park, Florida, USA|
is my cockatiel Piper. I got her when she was ten weeks old back in
2006, so she will be five years old this year. She loves to cuddle and have
her head scratched, and is by far the sweetest bird I have ever had. She
likes to watch TV with me, and just sit quietly enjoying the company. I feed
her a meal of warm veggies and grains every night and this is our bonding
time where we share the love. This is a very special little soul.
PIper is an extremely sweet and affectionate bird, but only with me. She is a
bit shy around strangers, and only barely tolerates my husband. She does not
talk and is only vocal when she wants something, like to be taken back to her
cage or to be let out of her cage! But I can hold and cuddle her and do what
I want with her while others have to win her over very slowly. She loves to
get and give kisses, and will hang in the corner of her cage with her beak
through the bars each morning before I leave for work, hoping for head
scratches and kisses. My husband says she will stay there for a long time
after I'm gone, hoping I'll come back. So you can say we are very close.
