The family had visitors again, nice! Naturally I did my shy act again, so although everybody begged me to sing or whistle, I was as quiet as a mouse. However, I clearly enjoyed myself and loved to be passed from hand to hand. One of the ladies wanted to kiss me, and she kept asking if I would bite her lip. My family explained that although they kiss me the whole day through, I am an undomesticated animal by nature and thus somewhat unpredictable. She kissed me anyway and of course I let her. I am not all that bad!
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!
