I have had Pokey thru the best & worst times of the prime years of my life 14-44. He was shy in his younger years but once we connected it has been a bond til his last breath. Pokey ate breakfast, lunch , dinner & snacks by my side. Always worked out with me, played, watched TV & especially movies where his favorite pastime being petted for 2 1/2 hours or more. He was the PRINCE of his PALACE taunting our poodle & other parrots while flying past their cages and back to his home which was a fluffy rope high above the rest. CHEWING everything , when i didnt come home quick enough for him, cabinets, ceilings, pictures, books, clothes, & nice fluffy spa blankets was his highest revenge. I’ll miss my best friend, faithful sidekick, true-greenest companion & Ultimate SUPERHERO who gave me the happiest years of our lives, who loved me like no-other. I wish to fly with him in SuperHero heaven one day. AMEN and peace be with you my loveable Prince!
