D-day is here! A few more hours before the artillery will blaze away. The family feels a lot of sympathy for all the animals and pets all over the world. Fortunately, we all have had the opportunity to get used to it gradually, at least here in the Netherlands. People can't wait to fire away!
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!
