Hootie, the Pet of the Day
Name: Hootie
Age: Nine years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Cockatiel
Home: Anaheim, California, USA
   Hootie stole my heart nine years ago when I walked into a pet shop that featured fish, but had a cockatiel in the back of the store... Hootie. Hootie put himself between a big piece of driftwood and the glass so he could get as close to me as possible. I took him out to hold him and he was so sweet I decided to adopt him. I had another cockatiel at home and the two of them became quick friends!

    Because Hootie was not hand fed he doesn't like hands, but likes to sit on my finger and have me rub his head with my "beak" (nose). I can't even remember how that got started, but every night I hold hootie and rub his head and he gives me kisses. He does, however, love my toes, and will sit on my foot and serenade them. He also loves to wolf whistle and rattle around in a paper bag. As you can see by the photo he also likes to supervise me when I iron! I didn't put him there... he kept flying over. He likes to be involved in whatever you are doing. The sweetest thing he does is to sit on my chest and fall asleep, and snooze to his heart's content :)

    I can't imagine my life without Hootie. He's such a special little guy... and fills my life with laughter and joy!
