"Pepito, a Tampa photographer, decided to buy one of these Citron birds. He or she was about 6 weeks old. We are currently feeding him via squeezing liquid food down the throat - what a job that has been. We found out he might need to be fed for the next 6 months. I've actually gotten very attached to him now and he sits with me daily as I try getting paperwork done in the studio. On top of my regular paperwork, he creates another huge pile of paperwork by shredding up documents, orders and everything else you can imagine. In addition he thinks my shoulder is now the place to sleep. He tries plucking my eyebrows and climbing up to top of my head by using my reading glasses as his private ladder. Once on top he's gets ahold of my hair (very long hair) and he slides up and down until he's so tangled up I can hardly get him back out of my hair. It takes Pepito pulling him off of me to get him back in line. I actually love this bird, but had no idea what a full time job he actually could be. He isn't a bird - he truly thinks he's a real person and demands real attention. Now I am thinking of taking him on trips with me making sure he's always got company. I've never wanted kids...I think I might have one now. Although Pepito bought him and is the real owner, I feel like I'm his mother. Pepe, yes, that's his name, loves to kiss and there's no hope for me wearing lipstick anymore - it's gone once he gets ahold of me. He kisses endlessly and it's a hopeless case...he's only 10 weeks old - can you imagine the future?!"
