It is still holiday time, so Jan brought me to Sophia to wake her up. Normally I am only allowed to do this in the weekends, but this time Jan made an exception. I was so happy! I gave Sophia a million kisses and when Jan came in the room to see how we were doing, I crawled under the blankets as far as I could for fear he would take me back to my cage. Jan couldn't stop laughing. Normally he can't get away from me no matter how hard he tries!
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!
