Jan noticed that I have a funny relationship with water. Although frequently I try to step in my water bowl and take a bath (unfortunately only one of my claws fits in it), as soon as taps, water basins and spray bottles come near me, I am at the other end of the room and stay there. Still, Jan insists on my biweekly showers. He has no mercy whatsoever.
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!
