From today on I have to eat all by myself. I don't mind: yesterday I didn't even finish half of my baby formula. My family thought that was the sign to stop spoon feeding me and they are right, now I am really big enough to be weaned. Besides, occasionally I snatch something out of their mouths. They don't like it as much as I do.
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!
