||Washington, DC, USA|
is "Pretty Pigeon" who I found standing all puffed up and cold in a
parking space in the Safeway parking lot early one cold morning over a
year ago. The vet and the local pigeon rescue group decided he was not
raised wild and thus could not be released, so I decided to keep him. He
lives in our apartment with my family. He technically has a cage but
prefers to perch on the closet door at night. Needless to say, he is very
spoiled since he is so cute! His age unknown (vet says he's young) and we
think he may possibly be a roller pigeon--does rolling stunts in the air
from time to time!
What makes him special is that he is very family oriented, sitting on our
heads whenever we watch TV. He loves to play, particularly hide and seek
(I hide behind a wall and he peeks out, back and forth looking and hiding;
chase (I run around the room and he flies after me); and wrestling (peck,
peck, peck on my hand). He's very demanding of attention, but so cute it's
hard to deny him ever!
