This evening I had the time of my life. During my play hour (after dinner), my family put me on the floor in the living room and let me explore the whole wide world outside my cardboard box. What a joy! I went completely bananas and tried to climb on everybody's hands and feet and picked up everything I found on the floor (like a set of bright colored baby toy keys and a crust of old bread that miraculously grew there). Life is FUN, no doubt about that.
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!
