There are so many traits that make cockatoos a loved pet all over the world. Always ready for fun and goofing off, they can also be very affectionate and bonding, with a large appetite for cuddling. The only thing that might require your patience is the level of noise we mentioned. A good amount of toys can do well do keep your pet occupied and entertained, but remember that it can’t replace social interaction. Provided that you don’t mind the loud nature of these birds, the sweet and friendly Lesser Sulphur Crested Cockatoo can make a wonderful companion.
