The weather was very nice today, so Sophia took me outside again. Some of the neighbors were there as well, so they all came to me and made my acquaintance. I was a bit shy, but I really liked the attention. After a while I tried to fly away, but the chain stopped me and I ended where I started: on Sophia's shoulder. I realize now that Outside you can look, listen and talk, but you can't fly. I like the place anyway.
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!
