Autumn has started! The wind is howling around the house, the leaves fall off the trees (as well as the branches, due to the storm). I couldn't care less: I am sitting here in Sophia's room warm and snugly and I don't even think about all the poor birds outside, getting all cold and wet.
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!
