From Rita Roberts: Mitsi just passed away: Mitsis vocabulary consisted of the following…

Rita Robert's cockateel Mitsi

She always said this to herself first,

Good morning, Mitsi

then:

Good morning, Rita

Other words are:

What are you doin,

Where’s Koko? and:

Give me a kiss, and also:

Wheres John. She was just about a year old.

John has Mitsis parents in his aviary so if they have any more babies I might have one.
