UPI News Service, 05/17/2018 

A Florida pet owner said their African gray parrot's latest obsession is Amazon's Alexa -- and she has been using it to terrorize the house.

The owner of Petra, an African grey Congo parrot, learned to operate the Alexa in her owner's Echo smart speaker, and has taken to ordering the virtual assistant to operate the lights at unusual hours.

"First, you're like half awake and ... like, 'Was that a dream? Did that just happen?'" Petra's owner told WKMG-TV. "All day, every day, it's all lights on, all lights off."

Videos posted to Petra's YouTube account show her operating Alexa and showing a clear preference for the Amazon assistant over her owner's other speaker, a Google Home.

"Alexa, I love you," Petra says in one video.

Petra's owner said the 4-year-old parrot can speak more than 300 words and is now learning how to use the Google Home, despite her preference for Alexa.
