Everyone treats their pets like babies, in the eyes of the owners of pets they are like childs. And this love is even better when they act like babies too, like Smokey the African Grey Parrot who acts like a little baby with his owner having a wonderful time being spoiled and loved.
The African Grey Parrots are natives of equatorial Africa who have nests that both parents take care until the squabs get out of the eggs. They are notorious for mimicking noises around their environment and using them tirelessly. While they are highly intelligent birds, they need enrichment and attention in captivity or they can become distressed.
African greys are also highly intelligent, having been shown to perform at the cognitive level of a 4 to 6 year old child in some tasks.
