Lately my whole family has had to live with scratches on their hands. They have taught me to step on their hand with the command "Come on" and step off again when they say "Down". I understand those commands very well and try to obey them, but I am a bit clumsy still. Sometimes I loose my balance and grab their wrist as tight as I can, and with my long sharp nails I scratch them at those moments. Sorry, family. I don't do it on purpose.
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!
