I saw him at PetSmart, made friends and the rest is history. We just bonded. I always wanted a parrot. When I was a child, friends had two parrots Waha and Kona. It was then I decided I would have a parrot one day, they were fabulous! Thirty years passed before I fulfilled that wish. I am so happy I have Lou. Great bird.. Awards

Hi! My name is Sir Shakespeare Goffin a/k/a LOU

I am a Cockatoo from Bartlett, IL.

When I bought him they called him, "LuLu", however, because he is a boy, I shortened it to "Lou".

Lou sometimes says, "LuLu" and looks at me. Funny bird.

I also call him "Love Bucket" So funny.

12 years old   M


Lou loves a piece of hot dog. Unfortunately, he always trys to steal a sip of my margarita when I am not looking. Sneaky guy.

I am his favorie perch, but he loves to stand on the Loverbirds' cage and protect them.

He hates being in the cage. Throws temper tantrums when I put him away.

I am a victim of violent crime and ever since the home invasion Lou is a little insecure and doesn't like to be alone. He now sleeps on his favorite perch at night -- me!

She absolutely adores me and I know how to take advantage of that adoration!

He bites and is picky about his food. Loves human food..

Lou will be Lou..

  Hello Lou, hope we toos can be friends
It is nice to see another gofin as spoiled as i am.. I to sleep on my mommy. my name is peaches. my mom and dad got me from a petsmart to. people think when you come from a pet store you are going to be a bad bird but we are prood that is not true. I dont know about you , but i dont like to drink from a water bowl. I am spoiled and love to drink ice tea from mom glass. I once stole a sip of dads coffee. (it was luke warm) now i make mom get me my own coffee.( which she tricks me and puts warm water in a coffee cup , but i have to watch her get a bit of sugar from dads sugar bowl and put in it then ,and only then i will drink it)

I sure hope your family is ok after such a scary ordeal as a home invasion. Hopefully they caught the jerk. We have a pit bull that is suppose to scare off people when our parents are not home. he does ok. but most people are more scared of my cage mate Dazz. he is a hans macaw. everyone calls him the devil bird. anyone that comes near our cage that does not live here, he will fly on them and attack them. I love him because he checks out everything new put in our cage, (because i am scared of everthing)
Just a very warm welcome to the B.C. and stop by to visit us anytime.

Come visit me, Princess Gracie Thankyou for making me BOTD, Martha Speaks, Peaches & Dazz.
