The house is still very empty without our Dandy. Every time when we come upstairs, we get a shock to see the empty space in my room. We have given Dandy's aviary to the refugee center for them to use, so I have rearranged the items in my room and bought a large plant to hide the emptiness. We just wished the emptiness in our hearts would be filled... not a minute goes by without thinking, talking and dreaming about our Dandy!
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!
