Two whole months I have lived with the family now, which means two thirds of my entire life. Since the first day I came to live with the family I have kept a diary, and when I looked back on the previous two months I can't believe how quickly I have developed. Not a day passed without any progress. The family loves me so much that they can't even imagine they have ever had to live without me, and I feel the same about them. They all think I am the sweetest parrot in the whole world. Can't say that I disagree.
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!
