Elsa is our Lesser Citron Cockatoo. She's 20 yrs old now- this species of cockatoo lives 50-80 yrs.
I didn't realize birds could live that long. Elsa is a sweetie. I like that second photo of her looking out the window.
There are basically 3 different species of yellow-crested Cockatoos... The most common and largest are the Sulfur-crested Cockatoos (17.5-19.5 inches (45-50 cm)) which are found throughout Australia....Ken, I've never seen a Citron (I think because we have the Sulfur-Crested everywhere here in Aus). Galahs and Cockatoo's are LOUD How are the Citron different to the Sulfur? ...
They'll be no stopping her now Satira...so cute!My five month old kitten discovered today she can leap from the kitchen counters to the top of the kitchen cabinets. I wouldn't have believed if I hadn't been standing in the kitchen when she lept from the counter to the top of the cabinets! I couldn't figure out how she was getting there since I had coolers on top of the refrigerator, but now I'm at a loss as to how on earth I can keep her from the top of the cabinets. Guess it's time to invest in something that's a stronger deterrent for her jumping onto the counters in the first place. The plastic containers lining the edge of the counter no longer spooks her when she knocks them off, and the citrus spray on paper towels scent fades too quickly to discourage her from stalking the counter top.
He's a cutie Hornet and that hide and seek photo is a crack up...Our present pet is a Lurcher from a rescue center and is pictured in my avatar. He is normally quite quick to learn things but as you can see he has not quite got the idea of hide and seek
They do live a long time and can be very noisy. Growing up my next door neighbour had one...it used to say things like Cocky's a good boy....and the traditional Cocky wants a cracker...it was very affectionate with their dad but we needed to be careful with fingers and not poking them through the cage.Elsa is our Lesser Citron Cockatoo.

It took him a while to trust us but then he was a working dog and I think they kept him starved in the belief it made him a better hunter. He was barely twenty kilos when found and you could clearly see everyone of his ribs and backbone. These days he hits the scales at twenty five which the vet says is about right. I can understand the fear of broken bones particularity when you see how fast and agile they are when they run. Lurchers, and I assume Greyhounds, also have a very thin skin so he often picks up the odd scratch when running in the woods and I suspect it is not helped by the fact he is smooth haired. For all that, like I guess almost all dog a cat owners, we would not change him.Sweet kitty Satira (I love her face, she looks all innocent up there )
Hornet, that's how my Chilli sleeps too It means they are content and trust you completely and don't have a care in the world (especially in Greyhounds).
Before we got Chills, I was trying to get a Whippet but my hubby thought they looked like they'd break to easy so he veto'd that. Greyhounds are the only dogs that can run faster than Chilli, but only for a short time and he can out corner them (Vet said his heart rate is like that of a Marathon runner, he's very fit and tires all the dogs at the dog park, gets home rest for about 10mins then wants to go again).
