Ever since I discovered the Fun Coat, Sophia has had difficulties getting to the town hall (where she works). She has been late for the whole past week, so the family had to think of a solution. When Sophia puts on her coat, Jan puts on an old coat too. When I am busy playing with Jan's coat, Sophia quickly sneaks outside. Being retired from work, Jan doesn't have to leave so early. So far it worked fine, but the family is afraid that I will discover the trick soon and make life difficult again for Sophia.
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!
