Finally Free said: about his cockatoo
Yup. Rocco even likes to slip me some tongue now and then.
We have a cockatiel. My daughter taught it to take out her teeth retainer. The bird will work it out, and drop it in her hand. It also likes to cuddle, and put her head under your chin, and have you massage her teeny tiny neck, and she purrs like a cat.
If you ask for a kiss, (If she is in the mood), she will meet you beak to lips. If she isn't in the mood, she just turns her head, like a stuck up snob.
She has a different relationship with husband, daughter and I. My husband just pets her a little, and lets her peck at wiskers, play with buttons, and just relax.
Me, lots of petting, she gets pissed when you stop, and me trying to teach her to do things.
My daughter, they fight. She torments this bird. Scaring her with her fingers, petting her where she hates to be petted, Lots of hissing, (both of them) LOL, Daughter also kisses her. She also stickes out her tongue, and the bird bites it, several times each time. (Lightly) and screams.
So when we take her out of the cage, we put her on the back of the couch, and we wait to see what kind of mood she is in, who she goes to. So, yes I do kiss my pet. But not french kiss it like my daughter and Finally Free do.
