I have had the pleasure of owning or being in close contact with a few different animal as pets during my life time , Dogs - (Doberman, Miniature Staffy, Staffy cross, Dingo/German Sheppard cross, Bull terrier, Blue Heeler Cross & Various Mixed breeds), Cats - (Persians, Persian cross, Siamese Cross, Various Mixed breeds) , Rats (Male & female - White), Rabbits, Guinea Pigs, Fish. I also looked after sick and injured wildlife - Fairy Penguin, Echidna, various Birds - Lovebird, Finch, Magpie.
But the one I've been touched by the most is the Rainbow Lorikeet (Trichoglossua haematodus moluccanus). They are the most loyal, affectionate and extremely intelligent animal I have ever encountered. Even my aviary birds are extremely amusing , fun and entertaining to watch, and talk to.
Rainbow are not a parrot for every one, they are extremely demanding and will want to be with you 24/7
From The Beginning
I've never really had that much to do with birds during my life except for the occasional injured or sick bird I came across, and my daughters Pre-school pet Budgie, and never a Rainbow. Even though these birds can be seen in the wild in their thousands around where I live (Redcliffe, Queensland, Australia). Our first true encounter with a bird/Parrot was when my wife decided to by my son a Cockatiel for his birthday. She acquired a tame young male from the local markets, we called him "Pippin" .

I miss him so, he was the first bird that I saw die and will never forget this. He loved me so much, which was very evident and I could say he was deeply in love with me And I him. I actually thought he would live a long long time but I did not count on others in my home not be as strict and they got complacent and as a result I lost another beautiful little love. Rest In Peace my little one

Had a fit mid flight and hit a cupboard very hard, I think he died instantly.
I spent 2 hours with CPR but failed to revive him.
He was the absolute cutest of all my parrots
His precious, unique voice, His cheekiness, his love friendship and constant companionship will be missed by all
Rest In Peace My Little mate and friend, you will never leave my heart, I will never forget you
