Just now I had a big fright! I explored the room as usual and wanted to play with a pen on the floor. When I got closer, suddenly there were two pens... but what was more, suddenly there was another bird in the room! All my feathers suddenly stood on end as I put them all up to show who is boss around here... and at exactly that very moment so did that bird! I stared it in the eyes and loudly growled like a dog, but it didn't dare to growl back. The family laughed and laughed, but I don't think there was anything funny, was there? Quite upset I walked away, but fortunately, when I looked back, the strange bird didn't follow me. It was all very, very peculiar.
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!
