This Sunday my family left me in my cage in full confidence of my climbing abilities. Last week they were still worried that I would fall, but they have seen my climbing activities during the previous week and decided it is safe to leave me alone in my cage. I am glad they did this; I really feel too big to stay in a cardboard box with sawdust now. Besides, they threw it away yesterday. Did I mention that since a few days, I have started to sleep in the cage even during the whole night?
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!
