Jasmine


I "adopted" my greencheek, Jasmine, January 17, 2000.  I live in Raleigh, 
North Carolina and bought her from a breeder in Wendell when she was just 10 
months old.


From the minute that I saw Jasmine, she took to me right away.  Her favorite 
place to be is (of course) on me.  Sometimes, I will walk by her cage and 
she will flutter her wings and shake because she wants me to hold her. 
Other times, I will walk by her cage, and she will quickly grab on to my 
shirt with her beak and hang off from my back.  I am, quite frankly, her 
personal taxi.

Jasmine is extremely quiet.  I took her to work with me one day and my 
co-workers were not aware that she was there until I said something to them. 
  She does not talk (that I know of) but loves to make kissy sounds to me 
and knows how to say ah-ah when she knows she is doing something she 
shouldn't be doing.

She is extremely spoiled.  She loves grapes, applesauce, yogurt, fruit bars, 
dates, baby food, cream of wheat, cream of rice, Chef Boyardee Spaghetti and 
Meatballs, and rice among other things.

She is a very good traveler.  We have taken car trips together and she will quietly hang on to the side  of her cage while she looks out for birds or airplanes.

I enjoy every day with her and will make sure that I keep her in the spoiled and pampered lifestyle that she has become accustomed to.  :-)
