I’ve always wanted to get a pet since I was a kid, but my parents wouldn’t let me have one. They didn’t think I was responsible enough to have one, and they thought that a pet would be too expensive for us to have. I would always look at other people with their dogs and cats and would be jealous and sad because I couldn’t be like them. Since I became an adult, I’ve gotten a pet, but it’s not a cat or a dog. I saw some exotic birds on a website one day, and I fell in love with them.
I love that exotic birds are just so colorful. Their feathers have a lot of variety in them and look a lot better than the fur that cats and dogs have. You also don’t have to worry about birds shedding fur, because they don’t have any fur. Birds molt, but I’d rather have that than trying to brush bits of fur out of my furniture. Birds have a more pleasant sound than other pets as well. I love waking up to the sound of my own exotic bird. I’d probably be annoyed if I had to listen to barking and meowing all the time.
My exotic bird always gets excited then it’s time for him to eat. It has the cutest look on its face whenever I put the food near it, and it looks so satisfied as it’s chewing on the food. I guess it was a good thing that my parents didn’t let me have a pet when I was a kid. I would probably have a preference for cats or dogs and wouldn’t have discovered just how great exotic birds can be as pets. I wonder if my parents would like to have one as a present.
