Tonight, Sophia came home after horse riding with a slight concussion in the head. The horse was startled, had jumped away and off she went. I feel pity for her, but not enough to keep quiet. Normally, she doesn't mind my singing one bit, but now she keeps moaning and saying how noisy I am. Can't help it Sophia, I'm just happy that you are here, in this room, lying on the couch and making all those dreadful noises. Keep doing it!
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!
