    Evil Fluffy Cuteness

    Cockatiels are the best pets.

    Mine is over 10 years old and acts like a little dog. She "barks" when she hears me come home and follows me while I walk around my house. They are better than dogs or cats because they live longer and are cheaper to maintain. Cockatiels rule!
