My family is trying to get me potty trained. About every ten minutes they put me on the kitchen floor (there is no carpet there) and yell "Potty! Go on, potty!" Everyone who heard about it laughed at it, but it really does get result. I hardly ever drop anything on something valuable. I got so conditioned that even if I don't really have to go, I try my best to drop something. Now who's laugh lasted longest, eh?!
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!
