This morning I had my very first shower ever. Sophia sprayed a few drops of lukewarm water on me with a spray bottle. I heard it is the highlight of the day for a lot of parrots and absolutely necessary for our welfare, but this first time it was all a bit scary. I was glad when it was all over. Fortunately, I noticed that with one big shake I was completely dry again. I hope I will like it better the next time and so does my family.
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!
