This lovely little parakeet is staying at our house for a few weeks while his family is in Tasmania, a short term pet for us. Jeremiah agreed grudgingly, but Milo and I like him. He’s cheerful, in a noisy brassy way. He’s kind of like a cat in that he doesn’t seem to care if you’re there or not; I hear him chattering and whistling away when we aren’t in the room. What sunny optimism!
