This is a story about two pet cockatoos named Todi and Quincey. Todi was acquired in South Bend, Indiana and was a well known pet at Mr. Friendlys Pet Shop in South Bend. She was so sweet and when the author first met her she knew from the start she was in love. Todi has been a special pet for yearsalmost 30 years. Her adventures start in a 3 person household when she was brought home as a pet around the Easter time of year in 1980. She did tricks and talked. It was pure love for the pet owners, as she did scream loudly, as a typical cockatoo does.
She acquired a brother Quincey Vincent Cockatoo, from an Amish household in Goshen, Indiana. He turned out to be the mean one in the family, as he did not have a sweet nature but he did love women, only women. He grew to hate men and other pets as well. But he becomes a hero when he chases a burglar away.
Quinceys trip to the bird show shows how birds are like children and do not always behave. He embarrassed the family when he was taken to a bird show to perform and show off his feathers. He decided he would not perform.
