Hi Krista, I have a Senegal, Zoey, that I just love. The only
bad thing that I can say about her is that she loves me and
only me, and God help anyone else. One night I was sitting on
the floor with the dog and my husband was sitting in a chair
reading the paper. The dog and I were close to Zoey's cage
and my husband was about 10 feet from us. That silly bird
went down the side of her cage like a fireman on a pole.
Waddled around the dog and I, and headed toward my husband. I
have to admit that I had a grin on my face when she ended up
at one of his toes and latched on. She did this for no reason
other than he was in the room. Now like what I said
she loves me. I can hold her, pet, cuddle, kiss and do what
ever I want. She will even roll down the front of my shirt,
flip upside down on my hand, and take a nap on my arm when
I'm reading. She never, never, acts nasty to me. I
just love her to death. She makes me laugh with the sounds
she copies and saying "hi-hi" when I walk in the room. I
enjoy the beautiful green and orange colors of her feathers.
And those eyes! She has yellow eyes that watch everything.
Her and I have connected and I am very happy. I'm an at home
Mom who has older kids now, and Zoey is my 3 year old that
will never grow up.
