A few weeks ago, Sophia ordered a bird's harness by mail and it arrived today! I liked it: it was fun to try to demolish all the buckles and gnaw the strings into pieces (not that I succeeded!). However, when Sophia tried to adjust it around my body, I protested with all my might. Sophia didn't press on: it is far too cold to go outside and I wouldn't realize that it is meant to be fun. Ah, well, I am still young. My family members know that I will get used to it when the time is right.
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!
