Cockatiel from Bettendorf, IA

He was the friendliest one at the pet store. He got along with everyone and he was the only lutino for sale. When I went to look at the cockatiels for sale, he just came right up to me and was friendly from the start. He was and is my only cockatiel. I had quit smoking several months before and Mateo was my "I'll never smoke again" bird (though we also had parakeets)..

Hi! My name is Mateo

I am a Cockatiel from Bettendorf, IA.

'Tao, foofy foofy, fluffy face, fuzzyface, butterball

10 years old   M

Cockatiel

Nutriberries, avi-cakes, eggs, crackers. Anything crunchy. Anything seed-based.

His swing by my desk and anywhere near a red piece of fleece. He's obsessed with blankets, towels, socks and fleece. If birds could legally marry fleece, Mateo would be a happily married bird.

Everything, LOL! He doesn't like the color blue, he doesn't like you near his cage, he hates parakeets and he hates bedtime. He's a moody little bugger, but we love him!

She spoils me, even thought I don't let her know how good I have it! She gives me kisses and skritches every day.

He hisses when we put him to bed. He also makes a kissing noise when I'm leaving for work each morning..

Thanks for the vote and note. I feel real good now because he did have to clean some yuk out of my nose and I can breathe so much better. And mom made us all scrambled eggs with millet. Had another friend say his mom did that for him. Boy they were so yummy. I liked them better than the hard boiled one she gave us today. Maybe your mom can fix it for your flock too. Even the finches loved them. --Dandy

Dandy again. Mom took me to vet and had me a well check. I'm doing great!! She found our I'm a big bird. Oh really I am. He said I had lots of muscle and should change my name to Arnold. HA as if I would after choosing my own name. But said I may have been a bit underweight when I moved here too. Boy did I ever get a good deal moving here!! And today we get strawberry and angel food cake!! Gotta fly. v4u

  Hey Mateo
Dandy here. Oh thanks for telling mom how good we look. Let me tell you how bad I was when I came. The people who gave me to her didn't like me because, get this, I was noisy and I bit!! Yeah, me, noisy. They said they wanted a big parrot. Mom told them to go to a bird store and hear what noise was!! AND they never gave me a bath. No dish in my cage or anything and my skin was so dry. Mom said I looked like I had dandruff. because my skin was so dry. She immediately started me in the shower. Which is such fun. And now I look like I do!! They also only gave me seed. I like apples and grapes now.
Here's a v4u and an invite to stop over again soon.

Thanks. Mom worked hard on all our avatars. Yours looks great too. Boy, Dandy will really be jealous when he sees your pic of you in flight. Mom keeps our wings trimmed. It's a great shot. Have a great one--v4u--Sly

  Hi Buddy!
You are a handsome guy! Mom said. :-) I LOVE nutriberries too ... only thing ... mom put me on a mini diet - thought I was gaining a little winter weight. Well, I don't like this diet thing. She only put one nutriberri in my treat cup with my fruit. I threw it on the floor in a tantrum fit. Then I said, "I love you" ... maybe buttering her up will change her mind. I'll keep you posted. Have a good day and here is a vote for being so cute! Your friend, Sam

  Hey there Mateo!
Glad you're making friends. This is a fun club, with some very kind and supportive people. I got put in time out yesterday for screaming at Moms' feet. She doesn't mind the play attacks, but she always gives me a time out for excessive screaming. I'm a lot better with that now, but those funny feet wandering around got me so excited! I hope you have a great day, and here's a vote for you!

You are so cute! I'm a 7 yer old tiel. I used to hate bedtime too, but now, if Mom doesn't get me to bed on time, I call to her to let her know. I like making kissy noises too! Mommy and I cuddle and kissy at each other a lot. Anyway, here's your first vote!!! and I'm glad to have you in the club. Feel free to fly by anytime and have a chat.
