Shaveena Anthony on her pet obsessions
Shaveena Anthony, 6 years old
I heard that you’re getting a pet I don’t know but appa (dad) said that amma (mum) has a friend who has a big parrot, two parrots.
Oh really, a big parrot? What colour are the parrots? I don’t know, but amma said that she will ask them where they bought the parrot.
But why would you want a parrot? I thought you wanted a dog? Because of amma and appa lah, they won’t let me have a dog and appa and amma is not letting us take care of anything except for a parrot.
What dog do you like? I like German shepherds.
Oh okay. Why not a poodle? So smelly! Cause poodle ah, here half got hair, but other half no hair. And it looks so not nice. Are you happy to get your parrot soon? Uhmmmm…
So what are you gonna name the parrot? [ silence] Chunky?
