Pretty But Not For Me

Posted Nov 20, 2014

I had one of these while growing up. They are very pretty and interesting to watch though I didn't like the smell or having to clean the cage so it just wasn't the pet for me. I also would rather have a dog or cat that likes to cuddle and is more affectionate and one that is more interacting with me. I also love that dogs can go with you places which isn't really easy to do with a bird. So what I found out from this experience is that it wasn't the right animal for me. It never picked up on vocal mimics as some do. Would make it's own sounds but that is it.
