Playing in Sophia's bedroom in the morning is one of the happiest occasions I can think of and this was one of those mornings again. After a while I got tired and fell asleep under the eiderdown. Jan and Hilke came in and my three family members gave me so many kisses that my head almost felt wet and sticky. I wonder if there is any parrot in the world that is as spoiled as I am.
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!
