I love it when the family members watch television together. I sit on one of theirs laps and try to make myself invisible. If they don't see me, perhaps they'll forget that I am there and leave me on their lap for hours. Sometimes Sophia does, too. Lucky me.
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!
