Yet another breakthrough! I can balance on a perch all by myself for hours and hours now. But later in the evening, I got sleepy and decided to go back to my hot-water-bottle. Yep, I know I've got feathers on my wings and down all over my body now. Nevertheless, it makes me feel comfortable and at home so my family still provides me with one.
They say that you get used to everything. This is true, but still we miss our Dandy. We phone to the refugee center regularly to ask about our Dandy, and the answers are always the same: Dandy is still in quarantine but fine, he has adjusted well, he has stopped picking his feathers, he is between other Greys, although still in the same cage on his own. We are not allowed to visit him yet, but we will, as soon as his quarantine period is over!
