I used to be a spoiled bird, one squeak out of me and my family ran for me. Today, that has changed a bit: I still get attention and toys, but on the very moment that I start asking for food, the family turns deaf and ignorant! They give me a toy instead, or a cuddle, but that's not what I mean... don't you understand folks? I want seeds! I finished the sunflower seeds and normally, that's the moment I get a new supply, but now I am stuck with all those tiny seeds that I have to work for. The world is as unfair a place as can be!
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!
