GROOMING IS FOR THE BIRDS

For those of you who don’t know me (which surely numbers in the tens of thousands) I’m a female cockatoo who refuses to reveal her age. My owners purchased me in Hawaii when I was a young “chick” and had me shipped to Naples eons ago. For years they thought I was a boy. That’s why they gave me such a goofy name. And they revel in telling me stories about what a nice bird I used to be. I was affectionate and could be easily handled and never bit the hands that fed me. But with age I grew cranky and very obnoxious. Or so they say.

A Parrot Named Ted is a Hero

I need to tell you about how a parrot named “Ted” saved the life of a little girl’s pet iguana. I hear you! What a creepy, icky, scaly creature to call a “pet.”

Anyway, back to Ted. Our erstwhile head pet sitter - Karina - paid her usual daily visit to Ted and his cockatoo companion “Snowy” as well as the aforesaid iguana named “Pepper.” Karina’s usual MO was to unlock the front door, disarm the alarm, and start her duties in the back of the house where Pepper resides in an aquarium.
