All kidding aside I love my Kiwi. He loves for me to scratch his head, he cries when we leave the room, he loves to sit on my shoulder or to hide in my bathrobe when it is cold, he repeatedly says "I want some" whenever I am eating, regardless of what it is and he LOVES to shower in the sink (he'll shower in the shower too but he prefers the sink!) All in all he has been such a wonderful bird who is playful, cute, and really not high maintenance (unless you consider the fact that you can't do dishes without him flying over to you and trying to jump into the sink high maintenance lol). We decided to let his feathers grow so that he can fly. And he actually has learned to figure out which room in the house we are in and can fly to us and land on our shoulder which can catch you by surprise if you didn't remember you left the cage open!
This is a picture of Kiwi the day we got him (11/17/2006)

|Happy 5th Birthday Kiwi! :)|
The "perch" is a bread crust
The cupcake was cheese that I cut with a small cookie cutter and then decorated it with food safe markers.
"Kiwi" was cut out with cheese with alphabet cutters
I added some raspberries and blueberries for the border
This lunch was fun to do and Eliana loved it! Next time I try to make a sandwich like Kiwi I may want to try to add more colorful tail feathers, but for a first try I was really happy with it.
