Turns out that Kai's "mama" rescues these birds and has about 15! This was actually my first drawing or painting of a domestic bird, but my practice on dogs and wild birds seems to have served me. I was going to include here some meaning for the name "Kai", but when I searched on it, I found it exists in many, many languages with many different meanings. So I'll have to go back to my patron and ask.
Whatever else Kai may be, he sure looks intelligent, doesn't he?
