Pets are a great addition to our lives, and offer companionship, love, affection and a sense of purpose in life, as well as decreasing our stress levels and making us a lot less likely to be lonely.
When we think of pets, it’s often a dog or a cat that first springs to our mind, or maybe a rabbit or hamster. But surprising as it may seem, birds are actually some of the loving pets you can own, and this next video helps to prove our point.
Onni the baby umbrella cockatoo lives with his mom and dad in Tennessee, USA, and is one of the sweetest, most affectionate birds you’ll ever come across.
It’s hardly a surprise that his YouTube channel, which features videos of him playing peekaboo, chasing his family around the house and making silly noises, has over 184k subscribers, as the feel-good content instantly puts a smile on your face.
One of Onni’s most popular videos, titled, “Daddys Home, Onni Cockatoo!!” has over 7.3 million views from people all over the world.
Captioned, “Onni the baby umbrella cockatoo is ecstatic that his daddy is home from work.
He can predict the time he comes home and waits at the window every day,” the video shows Onni excitedly pacing back and forth at the window as his dad makes his way up the driveway.
“Who came home?” Onni’s mom says, as the excitable bird can’t stop chattering away. “It’s daddy, oh my goodness!”
After watching this adorable video of Onni, we’re pretty tempted to go out and get a cockatoo for ourselves! Still not convinced?
