This is my brother, Tiger. Well, I say he is my brother because Tiger is like a son to my father since my step-mother passed away last summer. Tiger is an African Grey Parrot. He is extremely smart and talks a lot, but not when you want him to (performing under pressure is not his thing). I got to meet Tiger for the first time last month and he was really beautiful. He does have one bad habit – he will destroy a pair of shoes in a heartbeat if you aren’t watching him. I know, he chewed up my flip flops before I even knew he was under the table.
