||Wells, Maine, USA|
P is a Maroon Bellied Conure. She lives in the lovely coastal town
of Wells, Maine and is a very special pet indeed. Kewtie P has the
intelligence of a kindergartner and is the Schnauzer of the parrot family.
She doesn't mimick or imitate our language, she speaks it! She understands
and associates with me, my son and our two cats. Kewtie P is our watchdog...
she shrieks and alerts us whenever anyone comes near and she often
scolds and teases the cats by yelling..."Get down...get down you bad cat!!!"
In the morning, as soon as she hears us move about, she whispers from
under her night cover, "Good morning, time to get up." At night she says,
"Good night" and will sing, with a vibrato, "Beautiful Dreamer." She loves
to be courted and will coo, "I love you." She croons and moans softly and
almost purrs if you blow on her belly. She tries to whistle when we
whistle and tries to match the notes. When given a food treat, she will
say, "MMMM, delicious... good piece... mmmm, good." And yes, Kewtie P
loves to sip TAB from her mistress's cold and frosty can. She also loves a
taste of watermelon on the 4th of July and often will lick a spoonful of
raspberry sherbert with her little tongue.
Kewtie P is a biter and believes that when she is on my shoulder, that she
owns it and that my head has no place there... her bites have persuaded me
that either she or my head my leave must my shoulder. LOL. Kewtie P shares
her home with two cats and two cockatiels. She is a beloved family member.
Thank you for letting me share my sweet little buddy with all of you.
