Today, once again, I showed my teeth; this time to no other than Sophia! When she took me out of my cage, suddenly I realized that I was in a room with foreign furniture, so I wanted to fly away! She thought if she would just hold me, I would become quiet again as had often happened before. Not this time however. I struggled and when she still didn't let go I BIT her in her finger! Fortunately, Sophia understands the nature of parrots very well, so she didn't try to punish me. Let this be a warning for all parrot owners: we are not as civilized as we like to pretend!!!
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!
