This morning, I climbed up all the way to Hilke's shoulder and sat there proudly. Then, we both climbed the stairs (Hilke held me, but that wasn't really necessary) to wake up Sophia. Normally she hates getting out of bed, but this morning she woke up laughing. I guess it must be funny to wake up face to face with a parrot.
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!
