Jan and Hilke left yesterday to go on a short holiday. Normally I would have missed them tremendously, but Sophia stayed home from work because she's got the flue. At the moment I am the most spoiled bird in the whole world. All day long Sophia was lying on the couch in my room, watching the television and reading.
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!
