George is 4 years old and a sulphur crested cockatoo.He is the constant companion of Bob and goes to work with him each day to deliver the mail.He talks a little ,he is stll learning.He has a life expectancy of 90 years.He is a good boy and is very spoilt,this shot is him patiently waiting while Bob sorts the mail. At home he has his own favourite spindle chair and sits beside Bob as they watch TV or he is on Bobs arm when they water the garden,where one is you find the other. he loves Mum and I too but we are more the ones that pat and coddle him lol.He gently picks up your hand and places it in the place he wants to be stroked or patted,his head or under his chin or under his wings. He has us in fits of laughter at times with his funny antics. He is a great pet, he has a cage in the garden it is a 2 story cage and he has his favourite toys in it,he loves Barbie dolls but of course he chewed her fingers and toes off long ago,another favourite is empty drink cans he throws them and rolls them,he finds fun in anything he can get.His worst habit is biro pens.He takes the little stubb out of the end pulls the nib and tube out,demiolishes the plastic casing and then struts off like an olympian leaving chaos behind him and an awful mess.
