Mika's owners were moving and didn't want her anymore. We took her in, not knowing hardly anything about parrot ownership.
She likes to bite me, and it took me a long time to accept that (especially when she rolls over in my dad's fingers).
But now that I have, she runs to the front of her cage to greet me whenever I come near, says my name, and "beeps" at me. It's fun just to let her out of her cage to play around, and find toys that she actually likes to play with.
We are pretty sure Mika has been through at least 3 homes before ours, depending on what her previous owners told us... we also think that their kids jabbed at her with pencils, because when we first got here, she went into a flapping panic at the sight of any pencil, pen, stick, long carrot, ect.
Wherever she's been, whatever she's been through, though, she's officially home, never to join that not-so-merry-go- -round of discarded parrot ownership ever again.

Hi! My name is Mika "Thanks ALL for 2/17 BOTD!"

I am from Marysville, WA.

Meek-a-meek, Mika-bird

24 years old   F



Apple slices, nutriberries and popcorn are some of her definate favorites!

The top of her cage. Or, even more fun - the top of Cayenne the sun conure's cage. There she is queen of the world!

She screams and flaps her wings and angrily attacks her bell whenever the kids or the dogs are making too much noise. "Knock off that racket!" she says. (okay... so she can't really talk like that)

She likes to make soup sometimes. Mostly, if she is upset about anything, she will attack her bell. I leave her bell in there at all times for this reason, so she doesn't decide to attack something else!
She also has learned to say my name, and will whisper it in her creepy Talky Tina voice whenever she spots me eating something she might want, or preparing her food.

Oh, she wouldn't play with toys for the longest time, but I finally found that she loves destroying those cup-holders you get at fast-food joints, like McDonalds and Wendy's.

  Hi ya Mika
I'm was really glad to hear from you! Hope all is well. We know about finals around here cause brother just finished his on Thursday. He kept coming out and geting on my puter cause that's where the printer is. I don't mind helping the skin kid out cause I know it's important to him! He tell me all about his classes, but I have no idea what he's talking about! He is studying puters and the only thing I know about puters is that if you push the mouse thingy around things happen on the screen. You can yank the keys off the keyboard with you beak too! Cool!!
Hope the finals went well and that everyone can relax for a while and enjoy this wonderful northwest summer--ok so it hasn't really hit summer yet, but it will!!
See ya soon!

  Hi Mika--
Gosh, I've never written to a magazine pin-up before! Well, you know you're gorgeous, so I don't have to tell you that....I have to admit, I'm a little tongue-tied, and that's unusual for me!

Anyhow, I'm out here politicking for BOTD...just stopped by to shake primaries, kiss any available babies, and drop off these pamphlets full of gross exaggerations and lies about why you should vote for me. I'm running on Wednesday, and I'd sure like to see your pretty little beak pushing my vote button, so stop by if you can---and if you can't make it Wednesday, well stop by any time and we'll have a nice squawk!

  Hi Mika
Oh, I bet when those puppies start struggling to walk and romp you will get lots of laughs. Mom said she bets they are adorable. We have been thinking of another puppy for our yorkie "Babi". She would like to see what they look like. Maybe your Mom will take pics and post them. Mom said when Babi was 1 week old she picked her up and cuddled her, then breathed into her nostrils. Then again 2 weeks later. When they picked her up to come home, Babi never cried or whimpered for her Mom, cause as far as she was concerned - Mom was her mother. She was so tiny and I wanted to cuddle her but mom was afraid I would hurt her. She still is afraid I will aim for an eye but I have never tried to bite the fur ball - I just want to be friends. But Mom says its best to be cautious - so we are thoroughly supervised.
Have a great day and enjoy those puppies.

There will be exhibitions of Irish dance by our very own milonga troupe (and hopefully all the birdies will want to join in too). Lizzie will be preparing an Irish feast from corned beef and cabbage to delightful green treats. So come and join us. You will have a wonderful time, and the luck of the Irish will follow you home.

  HI Mika
I am curious. Has your dog had the puppies yet? How many and what kind? Bet you would like to cuddle. I know I like our dog and when she was a puppy I wanted to cuddle to her but MOM was too cautious. Now she pretty much shies away from me cause she doesn't know how sweet I can be. I groom her hair every chance I get. Here is a vote for you.

  Congratulations Queen Mika!!
Shhhh!! It's Ellie! I snuck out of the bird room while Zebers was taking a nap and stole the puter! Tehehe! Mommy always called me the little terrorista...though I'm not sure why. Hmmmm....

Anyway, I gotta tell you something CRAZY. Mommy got a call from the Humane Society today saying that they had two sun conures that just got dropped off and they didn't have the facilities or the knowledge to take care of them so they asked if mommy could find them new homes. Of course mommy said yes, so now we have THREE screaming yellow buggers in this house!! Geez!! Thankfully the other two are in quarantine, so it's not THAT loud! Sheesh! And the other two both have two legs and don't live in a fish tank. Tehehe! I know I shouldn't tease my poor frother. I really do love him very much, but what are big fisters for if not to tease the younger ones? Anyway, speaking of the one-legged yellow screamer, he's doing great. Still taking his meds like a trooper. Mommy said that he has to stay in the fish tank until he goes to see Doc Melissa again which is on Thursday. So if the doc says he can be back in his cage full time, that's what mommy will do. Huey is hoping so much that's what the doc will say that he even has his toes crossed (literally!!! BWAHAHAHA!!! Ahem...sorry Huey.) But I really gotta fly before Zebers wakes up and finds me on this here 'puter. Boy I'd really be in trouble then! Thanks for all your BOTM votes for my screaming yellow frother!!! Love you! ~Ellie, the little Terrorista
