My favourite things

I was named after my favourite thing in the entire world; Arnott's Biscuits!

My naughtiest habit

I quite enjoy an earring nibble, but most of all I love to squawk as loud as I can until somebody pays attention to me.

What do my clients think of me?

They love me! I do tend to bite children, their teensy fingers just don't seem right.. But I do enjoy the copious amounts of head scratches I get from our clients. I am the life of the clinic!

Other things you should know about me

I came to the clinic as a stray about 8 years ago, but though they tried to find where I came from, there was no luck, and I never left!

I have an aviary all to myself, my very own little bachelor pad, that is looked after by all my colleagues.

I live a happy little life, and express this happiness through my many remixed renditions of "pop goes the weasil"!
