Acquired: Pet store
Posted Jul 07, 2014
Since my mother is scared of dogs and my brother's only wish for his birthday was to get a pet the compromise was that we would get a parrot. When Ari arrived he was very young and small and also very scared. However, he quickly got used to his surroundings and started singing beautifully within a few days. At first he was scared to fly and didn't have confidence but after a while he explored every room in our home. He didn't learn how to speak any words but when you repeated something to him he would try to imitate you. He was very smart and when you called his name and pointed to the shoulder he would fly and stay there. Keeping him was fairly easy, although my only advice would be to close every window because they are curious and might escape outside.
