My animal housemates (part 1 of 4)

For this post, I shall introduce you to the other animals I share my house with. First up is Blacko.

As you can see, he's a parrot, a Red-Headed Lory to be exact. He's not a talking parrot though. All he does is make noise. Lots of it.

He was born on 4th July 1997. That's yesterday. He's 10 years old now.

He's got a little red friend that lives with him on his perch. It's the thing beside him.

Now, that bird could talk. Haha. It was battery operated. Blacko loves rocking that bird and he gets very very angry if anyone thouches it.

He is one fierce bird. When the cats came one by one, they were naturally interested in what was up on the high perch. But, after some unplesant expriences of bites from him, they stay away from this feriocious beast.

Before he was put outside, he used to be in the living room. He loved watching tv. Whenever anyone was watching tv, Blacko would stare at the screen. Sometimes he'd get so carried away that he'll fall off the perch.

He is also very picky and demanding. He always has bread with kaya and milo in the morning. And, he only likes one particular brand of kaya. He'll throw out any other brand. Plus, he has to have a bath every morning, otherwise he'll get cranky. He'll make so much of noise till he gets his bath.

Oh well, that's about all about Blacko.

Hmm....I hear a kid barking at me now. I better go bark back and scare away the human.
