Do you have a pet?
I do and her name is Kismet, an Indian Ringneck parrot. Here’s a picture of Kismet when she was too young to go home with us. That was almost four years ago. You can see the terrier attitude she has; she showed it even then. They had to get a bird to replace Boomerang who was a yellow cockatiel. “Boomer” was also my pet. I spotted Boomer flying outside and gave out the alarm. He walked outside to see what I was trying to point out and Boomer flew on to his shoulder. This startled Him so much that he flinched and Boomer flew away but only return to the shoulder in a couple of seconds. They tried and tried to find the peep who would be missing Boomer but no luck. They bought Boomer a palace of a cage and Kismet occupies it now. Boomer was with us for five years until They came home one day and Boomer was on the bottom of the cage and crossed the bridge. There was no apparent reason, We think it was old age with no idea of Boomer’s age. I was really upset and used to stay by the cage, hoping something would happen. I knew Boomer was dead; They showed the body to me. Finally, They got the message and got Kismet-I’m a happy camper again. Kismet got her name because it was unisex-we didn’t know she was female until the time passed when males got a very distinct black band around the neck. She named her but He wanted to wait and now would have named her Campbell. She thinks it is great sport to take food and put it in her water-thereby making soup. She can take a 12 pack cardboard refrigerator container for soda and shred it in a day. They have a good source of supply for these empty containers.
