This morning, just before noon, Sophia came back from Turkey (yes, again Turkey - see previous entries!). The ladies have been traveling all night, so she felt tired and dirty. But when we saw each other again, all discomforts were forgotten. I was so exited to see her back again, that I am afraid I made a complete fool out of myself. I yelled like a madman, jumped up and down and fluffed my feathers. Good to have you back Sophia! Now get some sleep, as long as you do it on the couch right here in my room... don't you dare to leave me and go to bed!!!
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!
