Meeting Naboo, our August Pet of the Month, sure was an entertaining experience. Cockatoos are emotionally intelligent creatures and, at only two years of age, Naboo is already a very unique personality. Upon our arrival she managed to climb to the highest perch on her 4 storey cage – previously uncharted territory. Although she was poopin’ herself at having strangers in her home, she couldn’t hide the fact that she was chuffed with her efforts. We were instantly won over.
Like most toddlers Naboo loves attention but pretends not to. While chatting with Michelle, Naboo looked on coyly from her perch, refusing to come down despite her obvious discomfort. Playing along with young Naboo we went and hid, pretending to leave, so that she could hop down without losing face. When you approach animals it’s easy to forget that they pick up on your fear – Krystal managed to win Naboo over with her assured ways. After years of hangin’ out with Eckles she has a knack!
