I am the luckiest bird in the world: Sophia has the flu. Now don't call me mean; try to imagine how it is to have a sneezing, coughing, moaning and sighing human in your room all day long. Still don't get it? Apart from the company all day long, think of all the new sounds I can try to imitate! The best thing is: the more noise I make, the louder Sophia groans. Believe me, this is heaven for any parrot. Don't get well too soon, Sophia!
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!
