Shula came to me through a local ad in a bargain hunter magazine 9 years ago. He was in a home with two little boys who poked him constantly with sticks.
He is now 17 years old and is a total clown. His favorite song to sing is "I Love You" by Barney. His favorite dance is the Mexican Hat dance, (well kind of, it's his favorite song to dance to) He loves to sit on my shoulder and play with my hair. He's mommy's boy all the way, he'll go to anyone, loves everyone, but he is all mine.
Cockatoos tend to mate for life and since he and Angel (my female Umbrella) do not like each other, only tolerate each other, I have been chosen as his mate.
His favorite treat is Cheeze-its, which he loves to share with anyone who will take it from him. He loves to destroy rope and wood toys and loves toys with loud bells, he will ring them until he just about makes you crazy. He's a sweetheart who loves to clown around, hang upside down and sing and dance until you make him stop.....he would seriously go all night if you let him.
He loves to be scratched on top of his head and under his wings and will sit and cuddle with you for hours.
Without further ado, here is my baby boy Shula:
