Do you like cats, dogs, birds?  Everyone has their favorite. We have young nieces and nephews come over to the house all the time. They love our birds in the cage. They want to talk to them, feed them, and visit with them. I don't have the heart to tell them that they are fake birds. I will just stand in another room and whistle or sound like a talking bird, "Polly wants a pizza." It doesn't get much food but the kids enjoy it. "How can a bird eat pizza?"
