Pet Of The Week: Jesse

By Hope Bidegainberry on July 5, 2018

Love mysteries?  Meet Jesse, a 24 year old Senegal Parrot who even though was never around cats, actually meows.  It’s a complete mystery how Jesse picked up feline speak, but this parrot sounds like a cat.  Another mystery about Jesse is gender.  No one is certain what Jesse’s gender is.  But what is certain about Jesse, aside from his/her meowing, is how friendly and loving Jesse can be.  Senegal Parrots can have lifespans that exceed 30 years, so Jesse still has lots of love to give.  Jesse is best suited for someone who is willing to shower this gorgeous parrot with lots of attention.
