    Evil Fluffy Cuteness

    My cockatiel absolutely loves to watch television. I think the bright colorful lights and sounds excite him. He is especially crazy, however, when it's a very emotional, climatic scene, and the best is when it's a very sad one: The characters are crying, I'm bawling and grabbing...

    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!
