The latest news: I can talk!!! Yes, I really do! And no, not one word, but two at the same time! For weeks now, Hilke called Jan several times a day with the words: "Jan, Coffee!" And that is exactly what I say now, in her voice. Listen for yourself... So finally, after the family had given up all hope, I can say my very first words!
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!
