About Us
Loki, the Pet of the Day
Name: Loki
Age: One and a half years old
Gender: Male
Kind: Green Cheek Conure
Home: Seattle, Washington, USA
   Loki is a Green Cheek Conure, he's almost two (he will be in August) and we've had him since October 2011. He is DNA-sexed Male, which was not surprising to us at all. Loki is special to me because he's the first bird that had ever chosen me (they usually choose my StepMom or my husband). He loves his towel time and his bedtime snuggles, which both my husband and I enjoy (he jumps between the two of us). I love the fact that he pretty much only talks to me, but only says something once (other than step up!) and never again. I love the happy little "purr" he makes when he's really happy for the food he's been given, whether it's pellets or fresh stuff. I also think that the constant kisses when he's happy to be with us are adorable!

    He had it rough his first year (pet store, bad home, back to pet store, not given good diet, attention, etc, until I came along) and I'm hoping the next 20+ make up for that. We had several rough months with Loki, major attacking and biting, not wanting to be handled or touched, to the point where Hubs was talking of rehoming, but I said absolutely not! Luckily, he settled down around the 4th month and he's been really awesome since. He is bossy, a bit bipolar, a little clown who makes us laugh often and just a whole lot of bird packed into a tiny little package! Gosh, I love him!
