Welcome my friends to SPOTLIGHT THURSDAY. This is the time that I will introduce you to one of my fellow anipals so you can get to know them better. Some of them, you may already know. We hope that you enjoy this series!

What were your first thoughts when you met your new parents? I wondered if I would be allowed to grow out my feathers and fly. I was so excited to learn that I could! I was ready to leave my previous home and go with the new family. I figured I had nothing to lose!
What was the defining moment when you knew you were in your forever home? Probably when my new parents got so concerned that I was too bored and lonely that they installed cable and gave me a TV! I was so excited – they must really love me! I like watching TV all day; I learn lots of new sounds and words.
What has been your biggest “Oh no, now I’ve done it” moment so far in your home? I can’t think of anything. I’m going to let Sugar answer that one next week; he has LOTS of those moments. I’m a good girl and don’t do that sort of thing (*bending over to preen a little*)
Who do you have wrapped around your paws more – mom or dad – and why? Dad! We watch movies together sometimes, and he hangs out with me a lot. Talons down, it’s DAD!
What’s the biggest misconception that humans think about you? I hate it when people think that I’m just babbling and don’t know what I’m saying. Sure, there are times I just like to play around with new sounds and roll them off my tongue, but if I’m talking to someone, then I mean what I say. We’re not just some sort of a recording device. We know what our words mean. Well, mostly.
Hope you enjoyed meeting my friend – check back next week for another Spotlight edition!
