Sophia decided to take me outside again, because she knows that I have to get used to it one day and will start to like it then. This time, I didn't panic. I was sitting quietly on her shoulder and knee and tried to make myself invisible. The only things that moved were my neck and my eyes, because the many birds in the garden and in the sky fascinated me. Perhaps Outside isn't such a hell after all.
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!
